Assassin’s Creed Mirage Set for October 12
Update: During today’s PlayStation showcase, the release date was cemented for October 12, as the previously written leak thanks to the Japanese retailers. You can find the release date trailer below:
It appears Ubisoft’s highly-anticipated title, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, has had its cover blown by none other than Japanese retailers, revealing the October 12, 2023, release date – ahead of any official confirmation from Ubisoft. The unexpected move has sparked a considerable buzz in the gaming community, providing a surprising twist in the game’s much-anticipated reveal.
For the uninitiated, Japanese retailers rarely list a product with a specific release date unless it’s official, making placeholder dates an almost nonexistent practice. This standard adds credibility to the revealed date. The product listings can be seen on three major retailers, Amazon Japan, Yodobashi, and Bic Camera.
The listed details for “Assassin’s Creed Mirage” suggest an immersive single-player experience set in 9th-century Baghdad. Players will dive into the role of Bashim ibn Ishaq, a cunning thief-turned-assassin who seeks justice and answers as a member of the mysterious Hidden One’s organization. This gives players a new setting and character, promising a unique twist to the iconic franchise.
Ubisoft has not released an official statement regarding the leaked release date. Whether this was, an unintended slip or a calculated move in a broader marketing strategy remains to be seen. The mystery surrounding “Assassin’s Creed Mirage” adds another layer of intrigue to an already highly anticipated game. The series has enjoyed immense popularity over the years, and this newest entry seems poised to continue that tradition, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
