Assassin’s Creed Mirage Officially Announced by Ubisoft
It’s been a bit of a weird day today for Ubisoft. Earlier this morning Ubisoft accidentally leaked the next Assassin’s Creed game by placing its art on their online store. This leak circulated around the internet. A few hours later Assassin’s Creed Mirage was officially announced by Ubisoft on their Twitter account.
Next Assassin’s Creed Game is Officially Mirage
Following the leak earlier today Ubisoft took to the official Assassin’s Creed twitter account to reveal the game. This reveal tweet said that (unsurprisingly) “Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next Assassin’s Creed game.” Details of Assassin’s Creed Mirage have been circulating online throughout the year, so the reveal is not overly surprising.
Details around the game are still very limited. There are rumors that the game will feature the character Basim as the central protagonist. The artwork shown in the announcement tweet does look an awful lot like him and the setting of it appears to confirm this that rumor.
Originally the Basim content was planned to be a DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but was turned into a game instead. It is rumored to be a smaller game that returns more to the roots of Assassin’s Creed gameplay, meaning more emphasis on stealth.
This isn’t the only Assassin’s Creed in the works from Ubisoft. They are also working on a title called Assassin’s Creed Infinity. Infinity will be more of a metaverse-esque, evolving experience, featuring a variety of elements from across the series.
More details on the Mirage are going to be shared during the September 10th Ubisoft Forward that is slated for 9PM CEST/12 PM PT. This livestream will be available to watch on the official Ubisoft Twitch and YouTube channels.
