Ubisoft has announced that the release date for Assassin's Creed Mirage has been brought forward by one week. Originally slated for October 12, 2023, the game will now be available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles on October 5.
The news was revealed by Ubisoft Montreal in a tweet, which also confirmed that the game has gone gold. This means that the main development of the title has been completed. The development of Mirage has been led by Ubisoft Bordeaux, the studio behind the Wrath of the Druids expansion for Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Described as a love letter to the original Assassin's Creed, Mirage focuses on parkour, stealth, and assassinations, returning to the action-adventure style of the earlier entries in the series. It marks a departure from the more expansive RPG-style gameplay seen in Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla.
Ubisoft showcased eight minutes of gameplay for Assassin's Creed Mirage in June. The game's creative director, Stéphane Boudon, stated in July that there are currently no plans for DLC for the game.
In September of last year, Ubisoft revealed its future roadmap for the Assassin's Creed franchise. The next two flagship games, codenamed Red and Hexe, will be part of the new Infinity franchise hub. Infinity is a live service initiative announced by Ubisoft in 2021.
