Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Details of a new Assassin’s Creed game leaked in February, when Bloomberg reported (opens in a new tab) that Ubisoft was working on a smaller game,
The stealth-focused Assassin’s Creed game alongside its larger project Assassin’s Creed Infinity (likely any online game). The other day, another leaker claimed to reveal that this second upcoming Assassin’s Creed game will be called Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Now we know that’s true. Ubisoft confirmed the leak today with an image posted to Twitter(opens in a new tab) and a sentence that’s hard not to read without adding an exasperated sigh: From the publisher “Assassin’s Creed Mirage is next Assassin’s Creed game”. They’re still leaking, and this one happened with just over a week until Ubisoft Forward, the live event where the Assassin’s Creed Mirage reveal is set to take place. This happens on Saturday September 10. Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier says his source (opens in a new tab) doesn’t quite agree on the details of the latest leak, but we can safely say it’s set in Baghdad and highlights starred Basim Ibn Ishaq (aka Loki), and likely started as Valhalla DLC, as Schreier reported in February.
Both reports also agree that Mirage will be a “homecoming” for Assassin’s Creed: a game focused on stealth, not RPG-style level and dialogue choices. The classic Assassin’s Creed hooded assassin look in the teaser image is fitting, if so. It’s kind of a fun scene, though: a good composition from a pure visual design standpoint, but it’s the least veiled assassin ever. How no one is looking at the guy up in the air? We’ll learn more about Mirage on Ubisoft Forward (opens in a new tab). We might also hear about Assassin’s Creed Infinity at the show, but Ubisoft has declared Mirage to be the next Assassin’s Creed game. Now that he has a new AC game to talk about, he can stay quiet on Infinity while he simmers. (Although I’m sure more details about Infinity will be released in due course.)
