Following a number of unofficial revelations on the upcoming installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise, Ubisoft has finally made the game public.
The new game will be called Mirage, and it will take place in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, in the ninth century. Players will assume the role of Bassem, an aspiring assassin in this game, which will take place in this setting.
Fans may recall this name because it was included in the video game Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which was released twenty years before to the release of this game.
Notably, Ubisoft has stated that the game would return to its action-adventure roots, which indicates that the RPG systems found in recent games will not be a part of the game in any capacity.
It is anticipated that Mirage will get into orbit sometime in 2023.
However, that is not all that the corporation has in store for the series, as it has also made a number of other significant statements concerning the future of its properties.
Let's begin with mobile, since the business is presently working on the first open world version of Assassin's Creed for smartphones. It is currently being referred to as “Jade,” and it will take place in ancient China and enable users to create the characters they want to play.
Additionally, parkour will be able to be practiced all the way across the Great Wall of China, which seems like a lot of fun.
Ubisoft has also disclosed that it is developing a new mobile game that will be made available through Netflix; however, there is currently no information available on this project.
Together, Netflix and Ubisoft are now developing a live-action series based on the Assassin's Creed video game franchise.
Ubisoft has also provided some information on the titles that will be released following Mirage. One of these games, which has been given the codename Red and is based in medieval Japan, is now being developed at the Quebec City office of Ubisoft.
During this time, the Montreal team is also working on an other game under the codename “Hexe.” There aren't many many specifics available about it just yet, although it appears to have something to do with witches.
Even though the RPG gameplay of games like Odyssey is largely avoided in Mirage, it appears that Red and Hexe will continue to utilize it.
Aside from that, the publisher has disclosed some new information on the Assassin's Creed Infinity project, which looks to be an internet center for the genre that will connect major games with multiplayer independent projects.
