Not much is currently known about Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s release date apart from a vague 2023 date set on its initial release trailer. However, Insider Gaming has learned that the game is currently scheduled to release in August.
Understandably, the date is tentative and subject to change, but the August date was initially set to be much sooner in the year with the game now internally being delayed twice.
The 2023 date already meant that the series will be moving from its now two-year gap between games. But, an August target suggests that we could be getting Mirage three years on from Valhalla if it’s internally delayed again by a couple of months.
With Assassin’s Creed Mirage set to release on both past-gen and current-gen consoles, it’s possible that this could be causing issues due to hardware limitations.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to release in 2023 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. The game will be smaller than a traditional Assassin’s Creed title and will cost $49.99 for the standard edition.
Sources were unable to give updates on why Mirage was internally delayed twice but had given updates on some other Assassin’s Creed titles. One of the key takeaways mentioned was that Assassin’s Creed Project Red was facing some issues in development.
It was reported by TheGamer reported in September that employees were leaving the project because of abuse allegations.
On the other hand, Project Hexe, has reportedly been received with overwhelming positivity during its proof-of-concept stages and could start full production soon.
As for release dates, sources have said that Red should release in 2024 with Hexe in 2026, but due to Red’s current issues, it’s not clear if those dates could be pushed back; but we wouldn’t be surprised if Red goes to 2025.
