Ubisoft denies Star Wars Outlaws leaked release window

‘Star Wars Outlaws’ vague release window of 2024 was accidentally narrowed down, as a blog post on the Disney Parks website quietly announced that the game would release in ‘late 2024’.

Ubisoft, the studio publishing the game, was quick to issue a correction, saying that the information was incorrect, and the blog post has since been amended to the vague 2024.

‘Outlaws’ was confirmed to be in production in January 2021, and a short trailer was released in June 2023.

Massive Entertainment will be developing the game, and they explained the game will be shorter than some other Ubisoft open world titles.

“Our objective is to really get people into a very dense, rich adventure, open world adventure that they can explore at their own rhythm,” ‘Outlaws’ creative director Julian Gerighty told IGN.

“So it is absolutely not a 200 or 300 hour epic unfinishable RPG. This is a very focused action-adventure RPG that will take people on a ride and is very manageable.”

The open world game sees the new protagonist Kay Vess and her cute companion Nix try to pull off the biggest heist the galaxy has ever seen.

The raid is still shrouded in mystery but it will take Kay and Nix across the galaxy, encountering criminals like the Pyke Syndicate and the Hutt Cartel, travelling to well-known ‘Star Wars’ locations like Tatooine and Kijimi, as well as new ones like Toshara.

The game will be set between ‘Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi’ and the Empire will play a heavy part in the game, as if players attract their attention, stormtroopers and TIE Fighters will try to stop Kay.

It isn’t the only ‘Star Wars’ game set to release in 2024, with Zynga’s ‘Star Wars: Hunters’ scheduled to come out sometime in the year.
