- Assassin’s Creed Mirage has proven to be monumental for Ubisoft, marking itself as the next major entry in the long-running Assassin’s Creed franchise.
- The developer has announced in a social media post that Mirage is its biggest launch to date which has garnered an immense response from the playing community.
- Mirage is the successor to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and is set in 9th century Baghdad, making Basim Ibn Ishaq take center stage as the title’s protagonist.
Taking to X (formerly Twitter), the developing heads behind the recently released Assassin’s Creed Mirage have announced that the game has been received exceptionally well by players, following the company’s decision to go back to the franchise’s roots with the title. Mirage is Ubisoft’s biggest next-gen across the board launch up until now, counting the sales figures for its Xbox Series X|S and PS5 versions.
Thank you all for joining us on Basim's journey in 9th Century Baghdad!

“Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey that celebrates, honors and builds upon the 15-year legacy of the Assassin’s Creed series. We could not have been happier that our back to the roots experience has been embraced by the community,” reads the post on X. It bears noticing that Mirage has only been out for 6 days at the moment, and it’s already managed to achieve a milestone this big.
Furthermore, Mirage launched with a $50 price tag, being a AAA game in 2023. This pricing has certainly helped get those sales numbers up to appreciable levels. Addressing the immense player base of the title, the post continues,
With the number of players being in line with past successful launches such as Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we are humbled by the positive reception. We are proud to also share that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the biggest New Gen launch in terms of units sales to date at Ubisoft (PS5, Xbox Series X-S).”
While reporting the glad tidings, the Assassin’s Creed team has also shared interesting tidbits regarding some of the quirky things players have done up until now. These include petting about 1.2 million street cats, taking 60 million “leaps of faith,” and a whopping sum of 479 million years spent in Baghdad parkouring collectively. And that’s all under a week’s time. Fairly admirable.
