Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the Next Instalment to the Franchise
Assassins Creed is one of the longest running franchises in the gaming industry and has created a big name for themselves over the years. Beforehand, Assassins Creed was all about Assassins vs Templars, but then things just shifted in the development and the franchise ventured on a whole new path. They began creating full blown RPG titles with surreal open worlds and a new historic location with each instalment.
Players have been debating about what could be the next instalment to the franchise since the release of Assassins Creed Valhalla. One of the titles that they are pretty resolute about is the live service game that is still in development called Assassins Creed Infinity, which will provide players multiple experiences through out many historic locations. Another topic for discussion was, what will be the next flagship instalment to the franchise.
Many for a long time thought that the next title will be dubbed as Assassins Creed: Rift and could be set in Baghdad or the Aztecs, as most leaked hinted towards this possibility. It was all going to be confirmed at the Ubisoft Forward event which supposed to place on September 10, 2022. Now, Ubisoft has come out with an official announcement, before the event to let people know what the next Assassins instalment will be called.
The next instalment has been officially dubbed as Assassins Creed: Mirage. It appears that one of these leaks was true and the game will be set in Baghdad as seen in the artwork released with the announcement. Players will also be happy to know that a fan favourite character, Basim, will be the protagonist of the story. He was first seen in Assassins Creed Valhalla and now the players will be continuing the journey through him.
