Update 2 - A reminder that tomorrow is the Ubisoft Forward event where it's expected that Assassin's Creed Mirage will be revealed. We'll update this page accordingly following the event, once all information has been confirmed by the publisher and developer.
Update - Ubisoft has confirmed the existance of Assassin's Creed Mirage and announced that they will reveal the game in full next week during Ubisoft Forward. Writing on Twitter the company said: “Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next Assassin’s Creed game. We can’t wait to tell you more on September 10 at Ubisoft Forward: 9PM CEST | 12PM PT."
Original Story Follows – Ubisoft’s next Assassin’s Creed game might have leaked ahead of a possible reveal in September at Ubisoft Forward.
YouTuber, j0nathan has released a new report which alleges that the next Assassin’s Creed game is called Assassin’s Creed Mirage and due to release in Spring 2023.
In addition, the game will reportedly take place in Baghdad during the late ‘800s with a more stripped-back game that represents a “return to basics”.
On its own, the information might be treated as slightly spurious, but Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier has since corroborated large sections of the report.
Schreier has since explained that a source familiar with the game has told him that the name, release date game location and game mechanics are accurate.
That said, j0nathan also suggested the game would have ‘multiple cities to explore’, which is supposedly not accurate.
A person familiar tells me parts of this new Assassin's Creed leak are true (such as the name and the other stuff Bloomberg has already reported: spring 23, Baghdad, back to AC basics) and other parts are not ("multiple cities to explore") https://t.co/qmM6UZtKnG

A report by Bloomberg in February suggested that the next Assassin’s Creed game will be a smaller-scale, stealth-focused title. Likewise it was said that this new title would be closer to that of the early Assassin’s Creed games from the series, and not the more recent RPG-influenced games in the series.
“The game, code-named Rift, was originally planned as an expansion for 2020’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla but morphed into a full game late last year,” the Bloomberg report suggested.
“It will star Basim, a popular assassin character from Valhalla, and will be smaller in scope than recent games in the series, the people said.”
Assuming Assassin’s Creed Mirage is coming out in ‘Spring 2023’ then we can expect to see the game launch at some point between 20 March 2023 and 21 June 2023.
Given that most Assassin’s Creed games have typically launched in October and November, the release would also signal a big change for the series too.
