Ahead of Ubisoft’s big Assassin’s Creed event in September, new details about a new game in the series have emerged, although at the moment all of these are rumored and nothing has been confirmed.
from YouTube users, j0nathan, I mentioned that a new Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed Mirage is on the way and will launch in Spring 2023. The game is said to be set in Baghdad in the late 18th century. The report said it would also be a “return to basics” for the series without compromise.
Reporter Jason Schreyer said that some of what has been reported about the new game is true, such as the name (Mirage), the setting (Baghdad), the release window (Spring 2023), and the approach to back to basics. However, some parts of the leak may not be true, as Schreyer’s source said rumors that the game will have “several cities to explore” are untrue.
A familiar person told me that parts of the new Assassin’s Creed leak are true (like the name and other things already reported by Bloomberg: Spring 23, Baghdad, Back to AC Basics) and other parts aren’t (“several cities to explore”) https://t.co/qmM6UZtKnG

The leak also indicated that players would control Bassem, a character from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, in his youth, right up until his arrival in Hidden Ones. The leak said the game will remove dialogue options and the ability to choose a gender.
The leak added that Mirage’s reported back-to-basics approach is inspired by the 2007 original Assassin’s Creed, and that Ubisoft is working on a remake of this game. The report said that this alleged new release will be part of the Mirage season pass, and there will also be downloadable content in Constantinople.
