Ready for more Star Wars?

Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment brought the most iconic galaxy far, far away to the Xbox Games Showcase 2023, revealing Star Wars Outlaws! More information is coming at the Ubisoft Forward event on June 12, but for now, we know it's aiming for a 2024 release window. You can check out the trailer below:

With a protagonist named Kay Vess, Star Wars Outlaws is set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. As you might guess based on the title, Star Wars Outlaws appears to be focused on a cast of rogues and less-than-savory figures in the Star Wars universe, instead of being a game about Jedi Knights.

Given that release window, it's possible that this is one of the eight games Ubisoft plans to release before April 2024, but we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out.

Star Wars games have been a mixed bag over the last few years, with a number of great titles including the recent Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. With the team behind The Division being responsible for Star Wars Outlaws, it'll be interesting to see the tone, world, and gameplay that's in store.

We're covering the rest of the Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct presentation with a LIVE blog on Windows Central, so you can see our reactions to the event as they happened.
