The next Assassin’s Creed game would be called Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
According to details posted by YouTuber j0nathan, some of which were corroborated by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, the game will take the series “back to basics” when it releases next year.
Bloomberg first reported in February that Ubisoft planned to release a smaller-scale, stealth-focused Assassin’s Creed game that’s closer to early entries in the series than more recent RPG-influenced games.

Featuring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla character Basim, the title was originally planned as an expansion for the latest entry in the series before being turned into a standalone game last year, he claimed.
Rift is said to be set in the Middle East, including Baghdad, with development being led by Ubisoft’s Bordeaux studio.
More recently, Bloomberg announced that the game would be released in the spring of 2023.
The game should be released before the official announcement of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is a collaboration between Ubisoft Quebec (Odyssey) and Ubisoft Montreal (Origins and Valhalla).
While previous series entries took place in specific historical periods, Infinity would be a platform for future Assassin’s Creed games containing several settings that can be expanded over time.
It was recently claimed that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will include a game with an Asian setting, possibly Japan.
Ubisoft said it plans to “unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed” in September, when it hosts a multi-game showcase.
