There have been 12 Assassin’s Creed games and a plethora of spin-offs over the years, and now there’s a new one in the making. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to be released between April and June of 2023.
A full reveal of the new Assassin’s Creed game is coming out on the 10th of September. But thanks to a YouTuber by the name of J0nathan, it looks like we now have more information about Ubisoft Montreal’s latest Assassin’s Creed game.
If J0nathan is to be believed, then Assassin’s Creed Mirage will occur exclusively in Baghdad during the 9th century. However, the city will be split into four zones, and each zone will have its own unique boss.
It has been confirmed that there will be other areas to the game, such as deserts and rivers. However, it is unclear whether they will be explorable or not.
The Youtuber also discovered more. He talks about the return of throwing knives as well as the return of rooftop hiding places. He also talks about there being a lot of parkour as well as the possibility of slow-motion assassinations for certain scenarios.

J0nathan also mentions the return of crowds of NPCs walking the streets. There hasn’t been an Assassin’s Creed game featuring large amounts of NPCs walking around since Assassin’s Creed Unity, so it would be a welcome return for most fans.
It would seem like Ubisoft is trying to bring back mechanics from previous games that were fazed out due to bugs and issues. So hopefully, we can expect to be wielding throwing knives and hiding in plain sight on rooftops once again!
Something else that may have been revealed is a plan by Ubisoft to remake AC1 (Assassin’s Creed), although, like with all leaks, nothing is set in stone. However, if Ubisoft did remake the original Assassin’s Creed, then there’s going to be a lot of nostalgia awaiting hardcore Assassin’s Creed fans.
