Following months of rumours and a leak earlier today, Ubisoft has officially announced Assassin's Creed Mirage, with more information to come during the next Ubisoft Forward event on September 10.
Earlier today, the Ubisoft Store accidentally leaked two images from a DLC mission for the at-the-time-unannounced Assassin's Creed Mirage. The leaked images confirmed the existence of the game, which has been reported on several times over the past year, revealing that it'll have a mission based on Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and backing up the rumour that it'll take place in Baghdad.
Seemingly in response to its own leak, Ubisoft has now officially confirmed the existence of Assassin's Creed Mirage with what looks like a piece of concept art. It also confirmed that it'll be giving more information during the upcoming Ubisoft Forward presentation on September 10.
When announcing Mirage, Ubisoft simply said, "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". The more interesting part of the announcement is the piece of art that was released alongside it, which seems to be conceptual, judging on the more stylistic design.
The key art shows what is rumoured to be Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Basim jumping towards the camera in full Assassin's garb, including a hidden blade. An eagle can also be seen in the background behind him, so expect to see Eagle Vision make a return in one way or another. The art style also seems to be a bit more stylised than previous Assassin's Creed games, although that could just be because it's concept art.
Assassin's Creed Mirage has been one of the industry's worst-kept secrets over the last couple of months. Recent reports have indicated that it's going to be released at some point during Spring 2023 and that it might return to a more traditional style of Assassin's Creed gameplay, scaling back on some of the RPG elements found in the last few games.
