Ahead of Ubisoft’s big Assassin’s Creed event in September, new details emerged about a new game in the series, though this is all rumor for now and nothing is confirmed.
A YouTuber, j0nathan, reported that a new Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed Mirage is on the way and will be released in spring 2023. The game will reportedly take place in Baghdad in the late 19th century. It will also be a “back to basics” for the series without leveling, according to the report.
Reporter Jason Schreier said that some of what was reported about the new game is true, such as the name (Mirage), the setting (Baghdad), and the release window (Spring 2023) and the back-to-basics approach. However, some parts of the leak may not be true, as Schreier’s source said that the rumor that the game will have “multiple cities to explore” is not true.
A person familiar tells me that parts of this new Assassin’s Creed leak are true (like the name and other things Bloomberg has already reported: Spring 23, Baghdad, back to basics AC) and other parts are not ( “multiple cities to explore”) https://t.co/qmM6UZtKnG

The leak also suggested that players will control Basim, a character from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, in his youth, until he came to the Hidden Ones. The game will remove dialogue options and the ability to select a gender, the leak said.
The leak added that the back-to-basics approach reported by Mirage is inspired by the original 2007 Assassin’s Creed, and that Ubisoft is working on a remake of this game. This supposed remake will be part of the Mirage season pass, and there will also be Constantinople DLC, according to the report.
More details are expected to be revealed during the Ubisoft Forward event on September 10. Also during this event we can learn more about Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which sounds very ambitious.
