Ubisoft Confirms Assassin’s Creed Mirage, More Details Coming Next Week
Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be the entry in the long-running franchise from the studio. Assassin’s Creed has made a name for itself as the most-leaked game just as it has for the epic franchise they have built. The announcement all but confirmed the leaks leading up to Ubisoft‘s confirmation but Ubisoft doubled up on the news by announcing that they will have more information for fans next week.
The social media post reads:
“Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next Assassin’s Creed game.
We can’t wait to tell you more on September 10 at Ubisoft Forward: 9PM CEST | 12PM PT.”
The Ubisoft Forward stream was previously planned and Ubisoft had teased that the future of the Assassin’s Creed franchise would be a focus but we now know that Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Also on the docket is Assasin’s Creed Infinity, Ubisoft‘s Assassin’s Creed live-service platform that is currently in development.
Previous rumors have pointed to Mirage taking place in Baghdad with players taking on the role of Basim which players might recognize from Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. The leaks shared that this will be Basim prior to his days as an assassin and stumbling across the Hidden Ones, who later become the order of Assassins.
We will also be looking to get confirmation on rumors of Ubisoft looking to take some steps back to a more original take on the franchise which would give players a more original feel rather than the massive open-world we have become accustomed to in the RPGs’ latest entries.
As a fan of the Ezio trilogy, taking the game back to its roots is a welcome possibility. The latest entries, although spanning an impressive open world full of fantastic action and discoveries, seems to have the supporting characters and story of the games take a back seat to experiencing the world. A more traditional and closed-off approach with a deeper, more involved plot and characters could be the shake-up the franchise needs to reinvigorate fans. Stay tuned next week for more information.
