There’s been some back-and-forth on the rumoured release date for Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the more traditional entry in the long-running stealth series. Now it seems Japanese retailers are all aligning around 12th October, with several major online stores adding the date to their product pages overnight. That includes Amazon, Yodobashi, and Bic Camera – they can’t all be wrong!
It’s worth noting, as pointed out by Gematsu, that placeholder dates aren’t all that common in Japan, so it’s likely this sudden swell of updates has stemmed from some kind of official information coming out of publisher Ubisoft. Of course, we’ll need to await confirmation from the French firm on that front, with some speculating the announcement could come as early as the PS Showcase later today.
If nothing’s mentioned during Sony’s livestream, then everything should be official by the time Ubisoft Forward airs on 12th June. We’ll obviously keep our ears close to the ground and update you if we hear anymore, but 12th October does feel like the perfect spot for a major new Assassin’s Creed game. We’re looking forward to more information.

Why do people hate new stuff?
I'll be disappointed if there's anything to do with Assassins Creed at Playstation's showcase.
I know people like them but I'm starting to wonder if the franchise might actually outlive me.
@Kanji-Tatsumi It’s been years since we’ve had a real AC game. It’s been since 2014 or 2015, so the series been very dormant in any real capacity.
SGF I think more likely. Can anyone remember where it was revealed?
This one could be really good. Still need to finish off Valhalla’s second DLC but I’ve spent like 120 hours in that world.
This would be a pleasant surprise! I'm not expecting it but if past AC reveals are any indication of how the rollout of information happens they usually had a trailer at one of the other conferences before doing a demo at Ubisoft's main presentation.
Obviously E3 isn't around anymore but perhaps this is a modern take on it.
It was technically revealed by a tweet from Ubisoft leading up to their last Ubi Forward. They decided to just announce it because leaks were starting to spill out online about it as is tradition with Ubisoft! 😄
First assassin's creed I'm actually intrigued to see more of for a long time
I’m really looking forward to this. I do enjoy the AC games. Origins and BF being my all time favourites. Hoping this will be decent as well.
I’m still waiting for an Assassin’s Creed game set during African American slavery and we get to control an escaped slave who becomes free and trains up to go back and save his friends and family from his former slave owner all while traveling to different slave plants and freeing slaves throughout his State during his quest. ✊🏾
I’m optimistic this will be good but I really hope they create characters that speak and behave like real human beings this time.
PS4 will never die!
