It’s been almost two years since the release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage Valhalla(opens in new tab), the most recent addition to the series, which means we’re definitely due for anotherand it looks like we might get our first look at what’s next at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event in September.

Assassins Creed Mirage will be revealed in September, according to a new leak

The latest Ubisoft leak comes from YouTuber j0nathan(opens in new tab) (via Rebs Gaming(opens in new tab)), who claimed in a recent video that the proper title of the new game will be Assassin’s Creed Mirage. It will be set in Baghdad between 860 and 870 CE, will be a return to the gameplay style of the original Assassin’s Creed, and is expected out in the spring of 2023. The leak is in reference to the Assassin’s Creed spinoff(opens in new tab) codenamed Rift, whose existence came to light earlier this year. It was originally envisioned as an expansion for Valhalla, but Ubisoft decided to spin it off into a standalone game in order to bolster its Assassin’s Creed lineup. The Bloomberg report that revealed Rift said that it will feature the character Basim Ibn Ishaq(opens in new tab), and will be smaller than recent releases in the series, with a heightened focus on stealth gameplay.

That all matches up with j0nathan’s video, and Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier who wrote the February report on Rift Said on Twitter(opens in new tab) that parts of the report, including the title of the new game, setting, “return to basics” gameplay, and release target, are accurate. But he added that other elements, including that there will be multiple cities to explore, are not correct, and also expressed doubt(opens in new tab) that an Assassin’s Creed remake will be released as part of the Mirage season pass. Assassin’s Creed Mirage, The timeline cited in the video fits as well: In its Q1 2022-23 report(opens in new tab), Ubisoft delayed a “smaller unannounced premium game” from its planned release this year to 2023-24. To clarify, all of this is separate from Assassin’s Creed Infinity(opens in new tab), the existence of which Ubisoft confirmed in July(opens in new tab). No details on that game have been revealed yet, but it’s reportedly going to be a live-service game with multiple historic settings. We may not have heard much in the way of Assassin’s Creed news over the past couple of years, but that doesn’t mean that things aren’t happening. We should find out what’s going on soon enough. Ubisoft has been keeping things quiet over the past year, but we have high hopes for the upcoming Ubisoft Forward 2022(opens in new tab), a full-scale showcase that’s set to take place on September 10.
