Game news Assassin’s Creed Mirage is moving away… release details

Already delayed twice internally, the Assassin’s Creed Mirage game release might not come as soon as fans hoped…
Assassin’s Creed Mirage: The Ultimate Assassin Overdue?
Announced for next year, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is certainly one of the most anticipated episodes by fans of the franchise, but a blur remains around its release window. Since September, already, rumors about the likely launch date had prompted its publisher to deny the assumption that the game could be released on May 15, 2023. The “leak” in question was ultimately unfounded, but Ubisoft did not specify the date on which the title would be released, other than “current 2023”.
However, the publisher’s very busy schedule for the Assassin’s Creed franchise gave hope for a launch before the summer for the Assassin’s Creed Mirage episode. Many of you will therefore certainly be disappointed to learn that the title is very likely not to be distributed before August 2023… This is indeed what the Insider Gaming team is communicating today, which ensures that the game is currently scheduled for release in August, even if it is only a provisional date. and subject to change.
News from the Assassin’s Creed Red and Hexe projects
Also according to Insider Gaming, “it is possible that hardware limitations are the cause of this delay”, the title to be released both on the latest generation consoles and the others. We also do not know why the game has already been delayed twice internally but sources also indicate that the Assassin’s Creed Red project itself will face development difficulties while the Assassin’s Creed Hexe project may soon enter production. The first wouldn’t be ready until 2024, at the earliest, with a 2025 release looking more realistic. As for Assassin’s Creed Hexe, we will probably have to wait until 2026.
A long-awaited homecoming with Basim and Roshan
Announced as a real homecoming for the saga, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will slip us into the skin of the orphan Basim, in Baghdad, in the 9th century. Guided by nightmarish visions, the pickpocket will join the ranks of a very ancient society to try to find the answers he seeks and discover a new creed that will seal his fate. The transformation of the young rebel into a master assassin is announced as one of the key points of this episode which should be similar to a real initiatory story. The story will reserve a major place for the master assassin Roshan who will make Basim his apprentice and who we find at the heart of a quest deployed since yesterday in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Of course, the prospect of being able to freely explore a recreation of the environments of Baghdad in the 9th century is not without appeal either. The city should be both dense and lively, housing several historical figures who contributed to its golden age. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is also announced as a tribute to the founding episode of the seriesall with a much more modern approach to gameplay.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is expected in 2023 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, EPIC, PC and Amazon Luna.
