Assassin’s Creed Mirage fans who visited some of the game’s store listings over the weekend were shocked to find an Adults Only (18+ ESRB) rating, hinting at the inclusion of not only in-game purchases, but “real gambling.” Ubisoft has now clarified that this is a “mistake”—Mirage will actually be rated Mature 17+, just like the majority of mainline Assassin’s Creed titles, and will not feature “real gambling or lootboxes.”

A message from the official Assassin’s Creed account:

Following the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Mirage during Ubisoft Forward, some store pages mistakenly displayed the game for preorders with an Adults Only ESRB rating and are being fixed.

While Assassin’s Creed Mirage is still pending rating, Ubisoft wants to reassure players that no real gambling or lootboxes are present in the game.

Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Mirage during its Ubisoft Forward event on Saturday, revealing a new installment of the franchise that would be heavily inspired by the original 2007 game, with a renewed focus on stealth elements. It will be released in 2023.

Additional projects in the form of Assassin’s Creed RED and Assassin’s Creed HEXE were also announced, which are set to transport fans to feudal Japan and what has been rumored to be 16th-century Europe, respectively. Both will be launched under a new centralized hub dubbed INFINITY.

    Here I was hoping for boobs and T&A.
  2. Hold on, if “real gambling” gets you an 18+ rating; how come every game that ever had loot boxes for sale for real cash doesn’t have this rating?
    Becuase the ESRB is refuses to to classify lootboxes as gambling. They really don't want to step on those toes. Just another institution leeching on society pretending to offer a real service.
