In February, Bloomberg reported that Ubisoft is working on a smaller, stealth-focused Assassin's Creed game.
Assassin's Creed Mirage is the next Assassin's Creed game, Ubisoft confirmed today through Twitter.
This leak came just over a week before Ubisoft Forward, where Assassin's Creed Mirage would be shown.
The company adds that further details will be revealed on September 10 at 12 PM Pacific Time (PT), which is 8 PM. UK Time, as part of its Ubisoft Forward presentation.
A hooded assassin is shown in the leaked artwork carrying a short sword and a recognizable hidden blade.
The words "The Forty Thieves Quest" are inscribed over one of the pictures, alluding to a Middle Eastern folktale about a ruler exacting vengeance on Mongol invaders.
The leaked image's aesthetic is similar to advertising artwork for past Assassin's Creed DLCs, such as Valhalla's The Legacy of Beowulf.
