The next game in Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series is reportedly Assassin's Creed Mirage, and it will be a return to basics for the series.
According to Youtuber j0nathan, the next Assassin's Creed game will be called Assassin's Creed Mirage, and it will be released sometime in Spring 2023.
The game will take place in Baghdad between the years 870 and 860, and it will bring the series back to its roots, drawing heavily on the first Assassin's Creed game, and will not include RPG elements, such as the leveling system, dialogue choices, and gender selection found in previous Assassin's Creed titles.
According to j0nathan's source, players will assume the role of Basim, who was depicted in his youth as a thief until he arrives at the Hidden Ones. The Eagle Vision mechanic will make a comeback in Assassin's Creed Mirage. Basim will also be able to use a String Dagger to defeat his opponents.
Based on the information provided in the video, a remake of the original Assassin's Creed game will be included into the game's season pass, which will also include DLC in Constantinople. The DLC is expected to be released a few months after its release.
According to j0nathan, Ubisoft is expected to reveal Assassin's Creed Mirage in a "Future of Assassin's Creed" segment on September 10, 2022 during the Ubisoft Forward.
Jason Schreier of Bloomberg claims that some of the information provided by j0nathan is true, such as the title and the release date of spring 2023, and the gameplay returning to the series to its roots. However, Schreier states that other sections of the information, such as the existence of multiple cities to explore, are not true.
