- Star Wars Outlaws is reportedly aiming for a spring release date, specifically targeting May, but fans should anticipate possible delays given Ubisoft’s history.
- The game will feature three types of environments: cities, large open-world areas, and space, allowing for diverse activities and quests.
- Speculation suggests that cities will serve as hubs, open areas as quest areas, and space as a place for unique combat and exploration experiences, but more details are yet to be revealed.
An established insider claimed that Star War Outlaws is aiming for a spring release date and revealed the specific month that Ubisoft is targeting. However, the insider also cautioned that Star Wars Outlaws‘ release date could change, given Ubisoft’s past tendency of delaying games.
Last month, Disney posted a blog that highlighted 24 things for fans to look forward to in 2024. The blog had an entry for Star Wars Outlaws, which initially explained that fans can expect the game “late in 2024.” However, a revision was quickly made to the Star Wars Outlaws section that changed the wording to say the game would “release in 2024.” Some fans took this to mean that Star Wars Outlaws might launch sometime in the first three quarters of this year, and recently, an insider offered more credence to that theory.
Star Wars Outlaws Planet Cantonica Explained
Star Wars Outlaws may not have a concrete release date just yet, but Ubisoft has already confirmed a few planets, including the familiar Cantonica.
Long-time insider Tom Henderson claimed that Star Wars Outlaws‘ release window is the first half of 2024, and Ubisoft is specifically targeting May as an ideal release month. However, fans might want to practice restraint before becoming excited, because Henderson reminded readers that Ubisoft is no stranger to delaying its releases. But his claimed release window for one of 2024’s most anticipated games does line up with the odd revision to the previously mentioned Disney blog. Star Wars fans are understandably optimistic about Outlaws, especially after its narrative director recently shared some promising details.
Types of Environments Featured in Star Wars Outlaws
In December, Star Wars Outlaws‘ narrative director revealed that the game will focus on three types of settings: cities, large open-world areas, and space. From the main character’s ship in space, players will be able to travel the galaxy at will and take part in various side quests, and can also engage in dogfights. In the Outer Rim, users will have a different standing with each criminal leader, including Jabba the Hutt, based on their actions.
Fans hope that Star Wars Outlaws‘ focus on these three types of environments will create a well-rounded world that allows for a wide range of activities. Some fans speculate that cities will act as hubs where players can buy or sell gear and find new quests, the vast, open areas will serve as a playground for players to complete quests and find collectibles, and space will allow for unique combat and exploration opportunities. However, this is just speculation, and fans will have to wait until Star Wars Outlaws reveals its world in greater detail.
