Assassin’s Creed fans, it’s time to get excited! Our sources have confirmed that a new instalment of the beloved stealth franchise was released last week!
“It’s been tough keeping this under wraps but finally the secret is out!” said Ubisoft spokesperson Niall McQuillan in an interview with a different media outlet several months ago. “Mirage is the next game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise and we can’t wait to tell you more.”
Wow! For fans of Ezio and the gang, this really is the best news they could hope for. It’s been eight long years since the last four Assassin’s Creed games released, so the Creed-heads have been restlessly waiting to find out what’s been happening to Desmond or Altair or whoever you play as in those games.
“Yeah…I’ve played Mirage, I’m literally playing it right now” said Assassin’s Creed fanatic Luke Firby, having paused his Assassin’s Creed Mirage stream to talk to us. “Why are you asking me if I’m excited for it? Did you forget to write the preview or something?”
But it’s not just Mr. Firby who was thrilled to find out about the good news! For those people who get their gaming news from the pre-owned shelves in GameStop, the excitement has reached fever pitch.
“Oh sweet, they’re making a new Assassin’s Creed game?” said GameStop shopper Tracey Hudson, whilst buying an old copy of Shadow of Mordor for $10. “That’s so cool, I’ll keep an eye out for it! Is it coming to 360?”
Assassin’s Creed Mirage releases on October 5th on Xbox and PlayStation platforms, but fear not Nintendo fans! We have some news about Super Mario coming soon that may surprise you!
