Ubisoft has yet to announce an exact release date for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The game was revealed back in 2022 and originally set to launch by March 2023. However, due to internal delays at the company, Ubisoft quietly shifted up its release window alongside Skull and Bones (that game still exists?).
According to a new leak which comes from a data mine and well-known leaker J0nathan, Ubisoft has set the exact release date for Assassin’s Creed: Mirage to 12 October 2023. The leak claims that the company is currently targeting that date. However, Ubisoft may shift it up into November if other large-scale games get announced for October in the weeks ahead.

With the Summer Game Fest and other June/July events set to kick off soon, Ubisoft is likely holding back on the official release date announcement for Assassin’s Creed Mirage until the week around 12 October is clear. The company clearly doesn’t want another game to get in the way of Mirage taking up all the spotlight.
According to previous reports, Ubisoft has already delayed Assassin’s Creed Mirage twice. While the delays weren’t made public reports claim that Ubisoft was set to launch the game in late 2022 and then again in early 2023 before pushing it to late 2023. A year-long delay is concerning. Ubisoft has also held back on showcasing gameplay for Assassin’s Creed Mirage up to now.
We know that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is taking the series back to its roots. The studio has developed it as a “special tribute to the first Assassin’s Creed game”. It is set in 9th-century Baghdad and focuses on stealth, parkour and other classic features which made the series so popular back in its golden years.
Mirage is also ditching the large-scale open world for smaller action-adventure hubs similar to Assassin’s Creed II. Ubisoft is focusing heavily on the Assassin’s Creed series. The company says more than 2,000 developers are working on the series across all of its planned games and spin-offs. It says this number will increase to 2,800 as the projects grow bigger.
