A production snag may have impacted the development of Assassin’s Creed Mirage
Assassin’s Creed Mirage may face production delay, according to recent rumors circulating among fans of Ubisoft’s stealth franchise. The highly anticipated game, which was announced during the September 2022 Ubisoft Forward event, promises to return to the series’ roots with a story that takes around 15 to 20 hours to complete, rather than the lengthy campaigns of recent entries. The game features the exploits of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Basim in 9th-century Baghdad, and leaked concept art hints at a possible investigation mode.
However, according to a recent tweet from Codex, an Assassin’s Creed fansite, the game has undergone production changes and may be arriving later than expected. This rumor, originating from French gaming magazine Jeux Video, suggests that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will now be the launch title for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a platform that will serve as both a launcher for upcoming titles and as the home for the series’ modern-day storyline. This would mean that the previously announced Assassin’s Creed Red has been pushed back.
