Assassin's Creed Mirage PS5 PS4 PlayStation Ubisoft 1

Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the more traditional stealth title in the long-running series, still hasn’t been officially dated by Ubisoft – but there were reports that the French firm was targeting an August 2023 release date. Now, reliable rumourmonger Tom Henderson says those plans have changed, with the title being “internally delayed” into October 2023 instead.

Understandably, the publisher’s yet to comment on any of these reports, but we probably won’t have to wait too long for confirmation: a Ubisoft Forward livestream has been locked for 12th June as part of the summer’s not-E3 showcase season, and we’ve got a sneaking suspicion Mirage will feature heavily during the broadcast.

If all the upcoming Assassin’s Creed projects have got you confused, you’re not alone: this is the game set in 9th-century Baghdad, starring Basim Ibn Ishaq, who was previously introduced in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It’s felt like some time since we got a major release out of Ubisoft, so we expect it to push Mirage hard this holiday – assuming that October 2023 window is accurate, of course!
