A recent post on the GamingLeaksAndRumors subreddit has possibly revealed information from the latest issue of Jeux Vidéo Magazine, one of France’s most popular video game publications, stating that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released on the Infinity platform. This would make it the first Assassin’s Creed game to debut on Infinity, rather than the previously announced Codename Red.

In an interview with IGN, it was explained that Assassin’s Creed Infinity is a platform designed to host various games from the series, ranging from different genres and lengths. It aims to combine premium, full-priced games with free and paid content, offering a multiplayer mode that connects the franchise’s different eras. Additionally, Infinity will serve as the new home for the modern-day story of Assassin’s Creed.

Infinity is not a traditional video game or a replacement for the series’ main entries. Instead, it will act as a hub for past and future Assassin’s Creed games, which was thought to start with Codename Red, a Shinobi-themed RPG scheduled for release sometime in the future. Infinity will display new entries as DNA memories, rather than a simple library of games, like on Steam or Ubisoft Connect.

Côté, the vice president executive producer of Assassin’s Creed, confirmed that Codename Red could be purchased as a boxed product, but upon launching the game, the Infinity hub will be the first thing players see. As the platform evolves, additional games, such as Codename Hexe, will become available as memories that players can explore.

Infinity’s modern-day or ‘meta’ storyline will be separate from the main games, which will now be solely set in the past. Côté indicated that the way the meta storyline is told will change over time, with players assuming the role of the main story character through their desktop Animus.

Côté also explained that not all future games released on Infinity would be traditional RPGs like Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla. Codename Hexe, for example, will be a different type of game, marking the beginning of a less formulaic period for the series. The Infinity platform will enable the creation of diverse experiences, varying in size and genre, some of which may even be available for free.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage, will be the thirteenth major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series, following 2020’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The game will be set during the 9th-century Islamic Golden Age in Baghdad and will focus on the character Basim Ibn Ishaq, first introduced in Valhalla. Mirage will return to the series’ roots, emphasizing linear storytelling and stealth gameplay over role-playing and open-world elements.

The game is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Amazon Luna in 2023.
