An AMA (Ask Me Anything) session was held on Reddit with two developers of Assassin's Creed Mirage - narrative director Stephan Boudon and art director Jean-Luc Sala. As a result, we learned a bit about the future of Basim - the main character of the game.

One fan asked the developers a question about potential DLC or larger story additions due to the good reception of the game by the community, to which Boudon replied:

We’re thrill by the reception of Mirage! Mirage as been design as a standalone experience without any DLC plan. However, we have ideas on how we could extend the story of Basim, surely. But as of today, no post launch content is planned for Mirage.

We already knew that the devs aren't planning any expansions, but the info about Basim is new. We are aware that Ubisoft is currently developing numerous games from the series. Assassin’s Creed Hexe is set to take place in Germany in the second half of the last millennium, AC Red in the age of feudal Japan, and AC Jade in ancient China.

The timelines of these games don't align with the period in which the events of Mirage take place - just a reminder, it's the year 861. It's possible that Ubisoft will use time travel at some point, but the Assassin's Creed series has included fantasy elements, such as Pieces of Eden, from the very beginning.

Another possibility is that a new installment will be developed, set during Basim's lifetime, and that is where we will encounter him. However, we will most likely have to wait a bit for the proper answer.
