Assassin’s Creed Mirage Delayed to 2024, Dataminer Claims

assassin's creed mirage delayed

On Twitter, a dataminer has stepped out with a claim that Assassin’s Creed Mirage (and The Crew: Project Orlando) is likely to be delayed and pushed back to 2024. There was also a mention in the Tweet that Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which is expected to be a return to form for the franchise, runs on an ‘old Assassin’s Creed engine’.

Insider Gaming sources understand that Assassin’s Creed Mirage gameplay will be revealed at this year’s E3 event, but it’s not known to what depth it will be revealed, especially if the alleged delay is a lengthy one.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage Delayed and Still… a Mirage

On Twitter, user ScriptLeaksR6 stated that both Mirage and The Crew 3, otherwise known as Project Orlando, are likely delayed. This comes as a relatively huge blow to the Assassin’s Creed community especially, as Mirage is penned to be a return to the traditional formula that fans have been longing for for quite some time.

Until now, very little has been shown regarding Assassin’s Creed Mirage. In September 2022, Ubisoft pushed out the world premiere of the game, but since then, things have been a little quiet.

It’s no big secret that Ubisoft has been dealing with its fair share of issues, though. In recent months, the firm has postponed Skull and Bones yet again and cancelled several projects in the wake of financial difficulties.

In December, we reported that Assassin’s Creed Mirage would be landing in August 2023, but it seems now that the suspected window will come and go without this eagerly-anticipated AC game dropping.

Regarding the comment about the game running on an old Assassin’s Creed engine – there’s not really any depth to it, as originally, Mirage was supposed to be DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, so that more or less adds up. In the words of ScriptLeaksR6, Mirage runs on an engine from 2019.

Insider Gaming has reached out to sources and asked Ubisoft for a comment on the alleged delay.

UPDATE – Insider Gaming sources have suggested that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is still scheduled for August 2023 and Motorfest for September 2023.

Ubisoft has not yet commented on the story.
