Assassin's Creed is going back to its roots in one last release before it becomes a live-service game. Assassin's Creed Mirage ditches the open-world framework and goes back to the game's stealth origins. Players will take on the character of Basim Ibn Ishaq in 9th-century Baghdad, starting as a street thief who's rescued by Roshan, a Persian ex-slave and mentor. From there, the choice to follow or forget the Hidden Path is up to the player in what looks to be a sprawling RPG. Assassin's Creed Mirage is slated for release sometime in 2023.
