New information from Tom Henderson sheds some light on the future of the title, and it would not arrive in August.
Currently there are many doubts about Assassin’s Creed Mirage, because Ubisoft has not yet shown any gameplay. It is more than possible that the French company will show news at the event on July 12, but the latest rumors suggested that this Assassin’s Creed Mirage would arrive in August of this year. However, it seems that there are some problems in its development.
Tom Henderson, a popular industry insider, has revealed on his Twitter account that Assassin’s Creed Mirage has been delayed internally. The date would have been moved from August to October 2023. However, this information is accompanied by another update on one of Ubisoft’s most unknown projects.
Turns out Assassin’s Creed in virtual reality, codenamed Project Nexus, would have been pushed back for a couple of months. We still don’t have a release window for this work, but the little that is known is that it would retain a good part of the franchise’s identity, such as the leap of faith and the hidden leaves. One of its particularities is that we can play with some of the most iconic characters from the Assassin’s Creed saga and it would be released in Meta Quest 2.
There is more Assassin’s Creed in development
Tom Henderson himself pointed out a few weeks ago that there were three more Assassins Creed in development, but they are still at a very early stage. Although it is a rumor, at the end of last year Ubisoft presented in an ambitious event up to six Assassin’s Creed that will arrive in the next few years. As of today we are waiting for the Ubisoft Forward on June 12 to show more news about Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
