Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed Mirage's launch date has moved to October 5, putting more space between it and a stacked lineup of new releases later in the month.
The firm initially planned an October 12 launch for the adventure title.
Regarding video game releases, the month will see multiple titles scheduled to launch.

"As part of our progressive reallocation of resources, we notably plan to increase the number of talents working on the Assassin's Creed brand by 40% over the coming years."
