Here’s what we know about Assassin’s Creed Mirage

At this time, we can only go by previous rumours and speculation. From what we’ve heard, the game will feature Basim Ibn Ishaq from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as the main protagonist. It has also been claimed that the game will be set in Baghdad, Iraq.

Judging by the piece of concept art released by Ubisoft, it seems to have a southern west Asian theme. So, it looks like the rumours of a Baghdad setting could be true. Furthermore, rumours have also claimed that it will be a more linear experience and less open in comparison to recent entries the series.
