AC Mirage Team Grows; Ubisoft Transfers Devs of Recently Canceled Game

According to the latest unconfirmed reports, Ubisoft has reassigned developers involved on the now-cancelled Project Q to work on Assassin's Creed: Mirage.

Ubisoft'sfinancial forecasts revealed that the French corporation is delaying Skull & Bones for the sixth time and cancelling three other projects. All this to cut expenses and save some money at a particularly unfavorable time for the company. Although these canceled games are still unknown, it looks like their group - now officially - has been expanded by the staff of the cancelled network game Project Q.

While until now we only had a leak that this title will join the list of cancelled games, now we are absolutely sure that this battle arena game will not see the light of day. Such information was provided to VGC by Ubisoft itself.

Meanwhile, according to Kotaku editor Ethan Gach the team of developers who worked on Project Q, has been transferred to work on Assassin's Creed: Mirage. Interestingly, in its post on Twitter, the author claims that at one time he heard reviews that portrayed the then still under development title in a very positive light.

As noted by one of the editors of GamesRadar , the release of Assassin's Creed: Mirage is likely to be less than two months away (unless it is postponed). Therefore, it is not certain how such a late relocation of team would be of any real help to the already integrated development team... unless, perhaps, in patching bugs that will survive until the game's debut (or post-release content).

As a final reminder Assassin's Creed: Mirage is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, XOne and XSX/S..

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
