Disney has seemingly revealed the launch date for the anticipated open-world game Star Wars Outlaws. According to a recent Disney Parks blog post, the game is scheduled to hit the gaming market in late 2024. The news comes after months of anticipation and speculation surrounding the release date of this ambitious project.
Update 1/4/2024: Ubisoft has since reached out to IGN to explain that the “late 2024” release window is not accurate. The window is now simply “2024,” indicating it could launch sooner.
Previously, Ubisoft had only confirmed that Star Wars Outlaws would be released sometime in 2024. However, the Disney Parks blog post, quietly listed the late 2024 release window, offering fans a more precise timeframe to look forward to. Credit to IGN for the spot.
“Star Wars Outlaws, the open-world Star Wars game, is set to release late this year.” The game promises players the opportunity to explore a vast galaxy, featuring both iconic and new planets. Gamers will assume the role of Kay Vess, an emerging scoundrel seeking freedom and the means to start a new life, accompanied by her loyal companion, Nix. With numerous challenges and opportunities awaiting them, players will embark on an adventure filled with risk and reward.
The journey to this release date announcement has been marked by speculation and shifting timelines. In May of the previous year, rumors circulated that Ubisoft planned to release its open-world Star Wars game in early 2024. However, in October, Ubisoft made an official statement, acknowledging a delay in a “large game” that was initially slated for release by the end of March 2024. While the game was not explicitly named, it was widely believed that Ubisoft was referring to Star Wars Outlaws.
With this newly unveiled release window, fans and gamers can start counting down the days until they can immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe as never before. The combination of Ubisoft’s expertise in crafting open-world experiences and the beloved Star Wars franchise’s rich lore has generated considerable anticipation for “Star Wars Outlaws.”
Star Wars Outlaws is currently in development for PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5. The game’s planets are being meticulously hand-crafted, offering a level of detail and immersion not typically found in procedurally generated environments. Each planet’s size will be roughly equivalent to two ‘zones’ in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, ensuring a substantial and engaging gameplay experience. The developers have reassured fans that despite its expansive open world, “Star Wars Outlaws” will not be an epic, unfinishable 300-hour RPG, striking a balance between exploration and a manageable gameplay duration.
