Rumor: Next Assassin’s Creed Game Titled “Mirage” and Is Planned for a Spring 2023 Release

Assassin's Creed Mirage

While nothing official has been announced, the rumor mill was circling before regarding “Assassin’s Creed Rift” which is the codename of the next Assassin’s Creed game. A new, credible rumor has surfaced, and it shares quite a bit of info regarding the unannounced title.

The rumor claims the game will be called “Assassin’s Creed Mirage,” and it will take place in Baghdad, Iraq, between  the year “860 and 870.” The game will follow the story of Basim as a thief during his early youth days, and how Loki eventually took over his body and consumed him.

The leak was reported by French YouTuber, j0nathan. He also claims the game will return to the basics of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, meaning there will be fewer RPG elements. All dialogue choices, gender choices, and the level system will reportedly be removed.

Here is a full list of rumored features in the upcoming AC game, as reported by jx0nathan on Reddit:

  • The final name sould be Assassin’s Creed Mirage

  • Releasing in Spring 2023 (between April and June)

  • The game will take place between 860 and 870 in Baghdad, during the Anarchy in Samarra

  • We will play Basim in his youth as a thief until he arrived at the Hidden Ones

  • Multiple cities to explore, separated by desert and rivers like the Kingdom of AC1

  • The game will be a return to basics, with strong inspiration from the first Assassin’s Creed.

  • Several RPG elements removed: no more dialogue choices, no gender choice (obviously) and no more level system

  • The Gameplay would be slightly different from that of Valhalla, less raw and with new animations.

  • The Eagle Vision is back but so is the “drone bird”

  • Basim will be able to use the String Dagger to eliminate his opponents

  • There will be “Visions of Loki” for how Loki manifested into Basim’s body and consumed him.

  • Ubisoft is secretly preparing the remake of AC1 based on Rift/Mirage’s work. They will reuse a large part of the assets.

  • AC1 Remake should be integrated into a Season Pass which will also include DLC in Constantinople (when Basim meets Sigurd). It will be released a few months later.

  • Ubisoft will unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed on September 10 during Ubisoft Forward.

What sets this rumor apart from your standard video game rumor fare is that Bloomberg’s reliable Jason Schreier chimed in, and mentioned that he has heard the same info (for the most part), which further adds legitimacy to this leak.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage (or whatever it’s called officially), is also rumored to be releasing in early 2023, between April and June. The information listed above has not been confirmed by Ubisoft, so best to take it with a grain of salt., However, if there is an announcement to be made regarding it, chances are, Ubisoft will talk about it during the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event on September 10.
