Assassin’s Creed Mirage Release Date Trailer Brings Stealthy Basim Gameplay in October

Ubisoft may have put its Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake on the back burner, but it still took the time during today’s May 2023 PlayStation Showcase to give us a nice long look at Assassin’s Creed Mirage, as well as a release date of October 12, 2023. It’s the next entry in the publisher’s long-running stealth action franchise that will arrive a whole three years after the series’s last entry, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Thankfully, today’s presentation is filled with in-engine footage of a project that looks to take the franchise back to its stealthy roots, as protagonist Basim makes the jump from the previous game to this one.

Mirage marks Ubisoft’s first step toward creating a clear path forward for the franchise.
