Assassin’s Creed Mirage Release Date Moved Up by One Week

Ubisoft has moved up the release date for Assassin’s Creed Mirage up but only by one week. The game is now set to release on 5 October 2023 for consoles and PC, leaving its previously announced 12 October launch date. Ubisoft didn’t disclose exactly why the game’s date was moved up, though the company did confirm that it had gone gold seemingly ahead of schedule.

Assassin’s Creed series creator Ubisoft Montreal confirmed the news on social media recently, meaning fans will get to play the anticipated new title one week early. Mirage‘s development is currently being handled by Ubisoft Bordeaux, which worked on the Wrath of the Druids expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage promises to be a return to form for the series with a focus on stealth, assassination and parkour – much-requested features by fans who have since grown tired of Assassin’s Creed games becoming massive, time-consuming open-world RPGs with an endless grind of content. Thankfully, Mirage won’t be such a lengthy journey as Ubisoft revealed that players will be able to clear almost everything that the game has to offer in around 20-30 hours.

The same apparently can’t be said about the yet-to-be-titled Assassin’s Creed Codename Red, which will explore a feudal Japanese setting for the first time in the franchise. A recent report claimed that Codename Red will be the last game in the series to embrace the “Origins formula” of RPG-lite features and a sprawling open-world. Perhaps Ubisoft has finally realised that fans yearn for much simpler times and want to steer the series back to its roots.

In related news, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be a shorter experience but it won’t be padded out by DLC. According to the dev team, it will largely be a standalone game with a complete story and won’t have any DLC.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage now launches on 5 October 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
