Japanese Retailers Leak Assassin's Creed Mirage Release Date

Assassin’s Creed may be another one of those series that will never end without some sort of cataclysmic event to stop it. The next link in its ever-growing chain is Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which has been developing in the background. Although not many official details about the game have been released, it looks like it can be expected sometime in October. It appears that possibly by accident, retailers in Japan are responsible for this info. Based on all the leaks surrounding the game at this point, it’s strange that more official content hasn’t already been shared by the development team.

The Assassin’s Creed series has created a reputation for being historically and culturally accurate to a surprisingly precise degree. Following the exploration into Norse culture with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is next on the list. Though the game was only announced a few months ago, Japanese retailers have labeled its release date for later this year.

According to Insider Gaming, the proposed date is October 12, as of the time of writing. Though this isn’t a confirmed date, it’s enough to have many speculating as to how far along the game actually is in terms of development and playability.

Many historical periods and countries have been visited throughout Assassin’s Creed, but there are still plenty more to go. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is said to take place during the Islamic Golden Age, a period defined between the years 622 to 1258 AD. A majority of the game will reportedly take place in the Arabic city of Baghdad, which was truly a center of human activity at the time. It was a hub for a range of scientific, cultural, and economic development. Leaked gameplay footage shows the latest in a long line of assassin ancestors as he runs through the streets and ports of the majestic city.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage may be one of the more quietly discussed games in the series, but leaked information is preventing it from keeping a low profile. Thanks to those retailers in Japan, the October release date gives an idea of how close the game is to launch.
