Ubisoft has confirmed that the leaked Assassin’s Creed Mirage is in fact their next Assassin’s Creed game. There’s no further official details at this point, but the game will be fully revealed on 10th September during the Ubisoft Forward stream.

Unofficially, of course, we have seen quite a lot of leaks and corroborated reports about Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The claims are that this will be a smaller-scale Assassin’s Creed game that goes back to the roots of the franchise with a more purist stealth gameplay focus. RPG levelling and some of the sprawl of the recent trilogy of Assassin’s Creed games will seemingly be put to the wayside.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage was apparently planned as an expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, following the character Basim that featured as an NPC in that game, but it eventually grew into a standalone game last year. Finally, the expectation is that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released in spring 2023.

This would all be a significant change of pace from recent adventures in the Assassin’s Creed universe. Valhalla launched alongside the new generation consoles in late 2020, and was the culmination of three games that explored the open world RPG gameplay first seen in Origins. In our AC Valhalla review, Jim said:

“Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla effortlessly plants its banner as the best open world RPG available for the new consoles. This Viking epic flexes its gore-soaked, tattooed muscles when it comes to world-building, and medieval England wows with its enchanting untamed vistas. It’s also portioned out at a steady pace and, if not for the repetitive, limited combat, Valhalla could have ranked even higher among our favourite games in the series.”
