Ubisoft has confirmed that the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage will debut on its subscription service alongside its conventional PC and console releases. This revelation arrives amid a steadily growing enthusiasm for the franchise, a sentiment further heightened by mechanics, Ubisoft found considerable success with this model, as demonstrated by Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s status as the first Ubisoft game to achieve a $1 billion gross.

Mirage’s Day One Release on Ubisoft+ A Strategic Move

Nevertheless, Ubisoft has committed to a stylistic return to the franchise’s roots in future releases. This coincided with the announcement that they’re bringing back the classic stealth features of old. With the recent gameplay showcase of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, it appears that Ubisoft is making good on this promise. Capitalising on this escalating anticipation, Ubisoft has decided to extend the game’s release to its own subscription service.

Ubisoft announced via their official Twitter account that Assassin’s Creed Mirage would be made available on Ubisoft+ from the get-go, for both PC and Xbox platforms. Collaborative efforts between Ubisoft and Microsoft have intensified in recent times, with the former providing access to major titles such as Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Game Pass. Ubisoft recently introduced Ubisoft+ on Xbox, boasting 65 titles through its Multi-Access plan and hinting that future releases may find their home on additional platforms. Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s arrival on Ubisoft+ appears to be a strategic push to enhance the attractiveness of their subscription service.

Ubisoft’s Attempt to Recapture the PC Gaming Market

Importantly, Ubisoft+ won’t be the sole platform for PC gamers to gain access to Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The impending game will also be available via the Epic Games Store, although Assassin’s Creed Mirage will bypass Steam upon its initial release. It remains uncertain whether Ubisoft plans to launch the game on Steam later in the year. Regardless, it seems unlikely Ubisoft will altogether exclude Steam, considering the platform has previously hosted the franchise’s latest releases.

The intensive focus on the Assassin’s Creed franchise is not entirely unexpected, given the developers rather lacklustre performance in 2022. As a vital aspect of their strategic roadmap, Ubisoft is augmenting the Assassin’s Creed team and intensifying efforts on various projects within the franchise. The future is yet to unfold for both Assassin’s Creed and Ubisoft, but if the Assassin’s Creed Mirage announcement is any indicator, Ubisoft+ appears poised to play a critical role in the company’s growth strategy.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is slated for release on October 12th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
