Assassin’s Creed Mirage doesn’t have a confirmed release date yet – just a vague ‘2023’ window – but we were expecting it to launch in the first half of next year, as it was revealed a few months ago. However, according to a new report from reliable Insider GamingThe Mirage may actually target an August 2023 launch due to internal delays.
The article states that the open world title was originally targeted for a much earlier release date, but has now been pushed back twice, possibly due to development issues. The publication speculates that spreading development across previous-gen consoles (Mirage on PS5 is a cross-gen title And PS4) can do are creating problems.
If Mirage does indeed launch in August, it will be almost three years since the release of the previous installment in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. That’s quite a gap, especially for a property that was putting out a game once per year.
Assassin’s Creed Red – a title set in Japan – is also facing problems in development, the report said. Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed Hexie is apparently doing well for himself, and will likely enter full production sooner rather than later.
It’s probably worth mentioning that the aforementioned Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also suffered a rocky development cycle. When the game finally launched in November 2020, it was a bit of a mess – especially on PS4. It received several updates to address many of its prevalent bugs and performance issues.
Anyway, we’re probably going to see Assassin’s Creed Mirage Game Awards In some capacity. It’s possible we get a release date during Geoff’s big show, but August 2023? It’s a bit of a wait, isn’t it? We will have to see how things unfold.
