Ubisoft might have just delayed Assassin's Creed Mirage to 2024

If this is true, then 2023 will mark the first year that a mainline Assassin's Creed game or an expansion won't be released.

Ubisoft has never been afraid to delay its games. Skull & Bones is basically synonymous with the word after being delayed several times. On the other hand, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is basically in the toilet after one of the key persons behind it left the company.

Assassin's Creed Mirage is just one of the many in-development Assassin's Creed games over at Ubisoft.

But, while delaying these two games won't shock anyone, news of Ubisoft delaying another pair of upcoming games will.

The popular Ubisoft dataminer, ScriptLeaksR6, claims that he's found evidence that Assassin's Creed Mirage and The Crew: Motorfest are going to be pushed out of their current 2023 release window.

To be more specific, the cybersleuth has given the upcoming mainline Assassin's Creed game a Q4 2023 to Q2 2024 release window.

Another detail ScriptLeaksR6 revealed about Mirage is that it will use the same engine as previous Assassin's Creed games. This shouldn't come off as a surprise as Mirage was technically a DLC for 2020's Assassin's Creed Valhalla before it became a standalone title.

The Crew: Motorfest was just announced earlier this year.

Curiously enough, industry insider Tom Henderson is saying that Assassin's Creed Mirage and The Crew: Motorfest are still coming out in August and September, respectively.

Ubisoft recently made headlines for telling everyone that it's using AI to write scripts for its games. Ubisoft is also skipping E3 in June, instead opting to hold a Ubisoft Forward event on June 12. Finally, Ubisoft Plus is believed to be coming to the Xbox next month.
