Assassin’s Creed Mirage has seen impressive sales numbers, becoming Ubisoft’s most successful release on the new-gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage has seen impressive sales figures, and Ubisoft is celebrating with some interesting statistics. Players have performed an astonishing “60 million Leaps of Faith,” petted 1.2 million street cats, and collectively spent 479 years engaged in rooftop parkour in the vibrant setting of 19th-century Baghdad.
The success of Assassin’s Creed Mirage is attributed to its return to the franchise’s roots, a move that fans have highly appreciated. It’s worth noting that this launch marks the highest unit sales for PS5 and Xbox Series X-S. Players are praising Ubisoft Bordeaux for delivering an outstanding experience that harks back to the essence of the series.
On their social media post, thanking its audience Ubisoft said, “We are proud to [..] share that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the biggest New Gen launch in terms of unit sales to date at Ubisoft (PS5, Xbox Series X-S). A big congratulations to the Bordeaux Studio and all its partners in the project for this accomplishment.”

While specific sales numbers weren’t disclosed by Ubisoft, it’s revealed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s initial sales have outperformed titles like Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Immortals: Fenyx Rising in their first weeks.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is different from the expansive open-world approach seen in recent titles like Valhalla and Odyssey. Instead, it focuses on a more compact space in Baghdad, emphasizing core stealth gameplay. This shift seems to resonate well, especially among fans who may have missed the series’ original style. Moreover, the game comes at a more budget-friendly price of $49.99.
In our review, we find that Mirage successfully returns to its assassin roots, even though it also highlights why Ubisoft took the franchise in a new direction initially.
