Ubisoft just dropped a bombshell on gaming enthusiasts worldwide: The much-awaited Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to hit shelves sooner than we thought. The gaming giant has slated the release for October 5, 2023, shaving off a week from its initial October 12 debut.
If you’re wondering about the reason for this early treat, it’s because the game has achieved the coveted ‘gold‘ status. In the gaming lexicon, when a game “goes gold,” it signifies that its core development has reached completion and it’s prepped and primed for distribution. Ubisoft Montreal, the mastermind behind the series, couldn’t contain their excitement and took to Twitter to share this double whammy of news.
In a gleaming announcement, Ubisoft Montreal tweeted, “Assassin’s Creed Mirage has gone GOLD!” showering praise and gratitude on their teams and their comrades at @UbisoftBordeaux. The tweet carried the pulse-racing news, punctuated with a drumroll for dramatic effect, revealing the updated release date.
Assassin's Creed Mirage has gone GOLD! 🌟 The game is now ready to go! 👏 We congratulate our teams who worked on the game alongside our friends at @UbisoftBordeaux! Thank you for your passion and incredible talent! 🙌
But we have another BIG news for you, dear fans…

Shifting gears to the development front, Ubisoft Bordeaux, celebrated for their contribution to the Wrath of the Druids expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, is the force propelling Mirage. The game promises a nostalgic journey, echoing the essence of the original Assassin’s Creed. Players can look forward to a thrilling concoction of parkour, stealth maneuvers, and the quintessential assassinations for which the series is famed. It’s a refreshing shift, harking back to the days before the expansive role-playing gameplay seen in titles like Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla.
