An interesting series of fortunate events emerged yesterday regarding the next Assassin’s Creed game in the series. First, there was a leaked image for a new DLC that featured a Forty Thieves questline. While many sites were wondering if it will be the new AC: Mirage everyone is talking about, Ubisoft went ahead and confirmed it.

Let’s start at the beginning of the trail of events. The Ubisoft Store had leaked an image of a Forty Thieves DLC quest, which many gamers quickly took note of. ScriptLeaksR6 was one of the first to tweet about it, while only posting the word ‘mirage’. Since then, everyone has been wondering if this is the new Assassin’s Creed game we’ve been waiting for.

Instead of removing the image and denying the rumors, Ubisoft did what so many publishers choose not to do. The company gave in and confirmed that Assassin’s Creed: Mirage is indeed the next game in the series. What’s more is that we’ll learn more about it during Ubisoft Forward on September 10, 2022.

Now here’s something even more interesting. The concept art has a character in a white assassin robe that looks very similar to the one we saw on Basim in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Since it seems we’re dealing with a DLC that’s become a standalone game, there’s no reason to think this isn’t true.

Does that mean Ubisoft is doing the same as it did with the Ezio chronicles? Are we going to see a new Basim chronicle that follows the Valhalla main game? If the concept art is anything to go by, it looks like we’re heading for a Ali Baba type storyline, which will be quite exciting. We’ll keep tabs on any further Assassin’s Creed leaks we discover and let you know.
