Assassin's Creed Mirage could be out by August next year

Unfortunately, the leaker confirms that the release date is still tentative and it could still be delayed depending on how development goes.

Release windows aren't uncommon in the gaming industry. They prove that developers aren't sure about when their game is going to be ready yet. Release windows aren't necessarily a bad thing, as games that are often said to be complete "soon" are missing any sort of actual release date.

However, an interesting countdown found in the final DLC for Assassin's Creed Valhalla is hinting at something happening in January.

Case in point, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Final Fantasy 16, and Diablo 4. But, while the latest word about the said games is they're coming out soon, we're hearing negative things about Assassin's Creed Mirage.

According to Insider Gaming, internal delays forced Ubisoft to target an August release for Mirage.

The report explains that Ubisoft has encountered several development issues affecting the release date of the upcoming Assassin's Creed installment. It speculates that the decision to release Mirage on both last-gen and current-gen consoles is a major factor. Furthermore, it states that Ubisoft is having problems with Assassin's Creed Red as well. But, the report isn't all bad news as Assassin's Creed Hexe is doing well and is likely to enter full production soon.

It's crazy to think how Ubisoft's marquee stealth-action franchise has gone from an annual release to this. The last mainline Assassin's Creed game, Valhalla, came out two years ago. However, in the interim, Ubisoft has made changes as well. Valhalla enjoyed more than two years of content support, recently welcoming its final DLC. Ubisoft could support Mirage for just as long but the report is hinting at the minute possibility the game could get pushed out of its current release window.

The worst-case scenario is 2023 will be the first time in years a new Assassin's Creed game or a DLC for a game won't come out.

If it's any consolation, Assassin's Creed Valhalla also had development problems in the year leading up to its launch.

Hopefully, things don't get to that point. Better yet, we're hoping Ubisoft has some form of a showcase for Assassin's Creed Mirage planned at The Game Awards on December 8 or for Assassin's Creed day on December 21.
