02/01/2023 @ 11:30pm GMT – Ubisoft has stated that the “late 2024” release window posted on Disney Park’s blog site was incorrect and has since been amended to 2024.

Star Wars Outlaws is one of the most highly anticipated games right now, and it’s not at all surprising if you consider the source material’s popularity as well as Massive Entertainment’s exciting gameplay reveals thus far. While we all wait to dive into Ubisoft’s action-adventure spin on the iconic Star Wars series, the developer continues working toward its release window, which falls sometime within 2024.

That’s right, it looks like Star Wars Outlaws will arrive this year after all, but it may not launch any time soon. The open-world game was said to be releasing “late this year” earlier today. We’ve only just entered 2024, which leaves a good few months between us now and the tail-end of the fresh year. The news regarding Outlaws’ release window came directly from Disney but has since changed.

In the article, which discusses this year’s biggest Disney experiences, the company describes Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world adventure as one that “lets you explore distinct planets across the galaxy, both iconic and new.” You can read through our own Star Wars Outlaws interview for a closer look at how Massive Entertainment plans to make it “completely fresh, but still relatable.”

Unfortunately, the blog post from Disney Parks doesn’t delve into further detail about the proposed Star Wars Outlaws release date and no longer says late 2024. Ubisoft reached out to “correct” the period to just 2024, as reported to IGN, which Disney’s post now reflects. The initially given time frame, while more specific, could’ve left almost an entire year between us and Outlaws’ big launch.

Following the amended window, we don’t know when in 2024 we’ll get to play the long-awaited Star Wars game. For now, we can look forward to more behind-the-scenes sneak peeks to witness the studio behind Tom Clancy’s The Division and the more recent Avatar Frontiers of Pandora bring its vision of Star Wars to life.
