In recent days, the video game industry has echoed rumors of a new Assassin’s Creed. Today, finally, Ubisoft chose to go to confirm part of the information. The next game in the franchise will be called Assassin’s Creed Mirage, and from its first image you can guess that we will return to the Middle East. Although the French company’s statement is rather brief – it promises to reveal more on September 10 – some previous reports have already provided us with plenty of details.
First you need to say that the name Assassin’s Creed Mirage This was first leaked by j0nathan’s YouTube channel. However, his report was backed up by Jason Schreier, arguably the industry’s most trusted and respected source. The curious point is that Ubisoft planned this game as a Valhalla expansion.. However, the project has grown enough to be considered a standalone game. Its launch is scheduled for spring 2023
According to what was mentioned youtuber, Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place in the city of Baghdad at the end of the 9th century, coinciding with the Anarchy of Samarra (the period of the crisis of the Caliphate). The setting is, in fact, already presented in the image that accompanies this post. The character we see in the material Basim ibn Ishaqwho already had a brief presence in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage say goodbye to RPG mechanics and open world
The most interesting thing is that Assassin’s Creed Mirageunlike the last three titles, return to franchise roots. It is even mentioned that he is quite inspired by the first Kree assassinsG, which was released back in 2007 with Altair in the title role. Consequently, Mirage do without most of the RPG mechanics and possibly a huge open world.
Also mentioned about the return of the eagle eye (to visualize the terrain from above) and the introduction of a large number of combat animations. Of course they wouldn’t be as intuitive as Valhalla.
If the above seems not enough to you, Ubisoft itself leaked more information about Assassin’s Creed Mirage in your online store. Specifically, there will be a mission inspired Ali Baba and the Forty Thievesone of several stories collected in Arabian Nights. His argument is very popular in Iraqi culture.

In addition, we must not forget that the French are developing Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a platform as a service that will host various franchises. However, at the moment we do not know Mirage this is part infinity.
