Assassin’s Creed is one of the most popular game franchises of all time, allowing players to explore historical settings and eras as deadly assassins. The games have taken players to Italy during the Renaissance, the American colonies, and even ancient Rome. The next game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, will continue the tradition of action-packed gameplay in a new intriguing setting in history.  

The game’s release date was confirmed during the May 2023 PlayStation Showcase, with a new gameplay trailer showing some old-school Assassin’s Creed action.

What is the Assassin’s Creed Mirage release date?

During the PlayStation Showcase, Assassin’s Creed Mirage‘s release date was confirmed for Thursday, Oct. 12 after a gameplay trailer showed the main character jumping across the rooftops. The city is very reminiscent of older Assassin’s Creed games, but it seems like there will still be pretty large open cities for players to explore.

Players can also get a closer look at the different weapons Basim will have throughout his journey, including the classic hidden blade and typical melee weapons of the time. The gameplay trailer also seems to showcase some form of silhouette showing executions that can be planned out. Much of this is still unclear, but the trailer provides the first look at the gameplay players have seen so far.

In September 2022, Ubisoft officially revealed Assassin’s Creed Mirage as the title of the next entry in the series. The new game will take place in Baghdad during the ninth century. Basim, a character that first appeared in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, will potentially be the playable character in Mirage

Mirage is also rumored to be a smaller experience than the previous games in the series, which are known for their vast open worlds. The new game will be similar to older titles, with more of a focus on stealth and fewer RPG elements. But fans can likely expect large explorable areas and plenty of content to enjoy.

The game was previously reported to be released in 2023, but fans now finally have concrete information about the next Assassin’s Creed title.
