Ubisoft said that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed spin-off — Assassin’s Creed Mirage — will be a smaller and more “intimate” game.

Speaking to GamesRadar, Boudon said: “We started to hear a desire among our fans for a character-based story focused on the main pillars of the first AC on a more intimate scale.

She added, “That resonated with us as developers and that was the starting point of the project.”

The game will be released sometime after 2023, the exact release date has not yet been confirmed.

The trailer for Mirage was released last September, featuring a familiar face in a “carefully crafted, narrative-driven” game set in Baghdad.

Ubisoft shared this Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be a “complex, narrative” game that will be more reminiscent of the earlier Assassin’s Creed games. It will be “more focused and linear” than recent games like Odyssey and Valhalla, and will focus more on stealth, faster parkour and traditional kills.
