There Are No Plans For AC: Mirage DLC or Post-Launch Content
It was revealed during a Reddit AMA that there are currently no plans to produce any post-launch content for Assassin’s Creed: Mirage. This was a statement offered up by Stéphane Boudon, the Creative Director working on Mirage, and it went hand-in-hand with plenty more information besides.
It’s a claim that has been met with a mixed response, as while we knew that AC: Mirage would be a ‘smaller form’ Assassin’s Creed game, it is reportedly on par with Assassin’s Creed Unity and Syndicate in size and scale, and both of those titles had their fair share of expansions and DLC packs released post-launch.
Never Say Never
Most recently, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released in 2020, and that game went on to receive more post-launch content than any Assassin’s Creed game in history. But, with that being said, it was one of the biggest and most ambitious games in the series.
It can be referenced that Ubisoft intends to return the Assassin’s Creed franchise to a smaller, shorter style of game, moving back away from the gargantuan RPG experiences it has offered up in recent years. But that doesn’t mean that post-launch content shouldn’t be considered – even the earlier titles, from Assassin’s Creed II and III to Black Flag and beyond had a content roadmap of sorts after they were released.
However, it must be stressed that there are reportedly eleven Assassin’s Creed games planned for creation by Ubisoft’s studios around the world. Could it be that there are simply no resources available to support Mirage in a meaningful way once it has been released?
Assassin’s Creed Mirage launches October 12th, 2023.
