Star Wars Outlaws, the new Star Wars action game from the team at Ubisoft that made The Division, now has a narrower release window. A blog post from Disney outlining the company’s plans for 2024 includes mention of Outlaws and specifically a release date being “late this year.” [Note: the blog post has since been amended to remove mention of the specific release window for Outlaws. The blog post now only states that Outlaws is “set to release in 2024”]
Previously, Outlaws was only confirmed for release sometime in 2024.
Outlaws is an open-world Star Wars game where players take on the role of Kay Vess, a scoundrel trying to start a new life. The game is set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi–when the civil war between the Empire and the Rebellion is at its height, providing an opportunity for crime and outlaws to thrive. The game will also feature a brand-new moon that was built from the ground up called Toshara–which was featured in the debut gameplay trailer–with “the scoundrel fantasy at its beating heart.”
Outlaws is set to launch on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, but there has been no mention of PS4 and Xbox One. Here’s everything you need to know about the open-world Star Wars game.
In addition to Outlaws, Zynga’s Star Wars: Hunters is set for release in 2024. Other upcoming Star Wars games include a new Star Wars FPS from Apex Legends developer Respawn and an action-adventure game, Star Wars: Eclipse, from Quantic Dream. Former Naughty Dog boss Amy Hennig is also developing a new Star Wars game.
There are multiple new Star Wars movies in the works, too, including a film that brings back Daisy Ridley as Rey.
