Disney says Star Wars Outlaws is coming “late this year,” then quickly retracts it

For a brief period of time earlier today, it looked very much like Ubisoft’s open-world heist game Star Wars Outlaws would be released sometime towards the end of 2024. Word came via a post on the Disney Parks blog, and, while it’s not quite a specific date at all, it’s certainly more accurate than what we previously knew – that it’s due sometime in 2024.

“For fans of Star Wars—Star Wars Outlaws, the Star Wars open-world game is slated for release later this year,” reads the post 24 Oooh-Worthy Things at Disney Experiences in 2024. “The game lets you explore distinct planets from across the galaxy, both iconic and new. You can risk it all as Kay Vess, a villain in the making who seeks freedom and the means to start a new life with her companion Nix. If you’re willing to take the risk, the galaxy is full of opportunity.”

I write “said” rather than “says” because shortly after the blog post went live and people started noticing the “late this year” part, it was quickly edited to remove the time frame and now it just says that Star Wars Outlaws is set to come out “in 2024.”

Fortunately, thanks to Wario64gone is not forgotten:

So was it an unintentional spill of the beans, like when Warner Discovery CEO David Zaslav spilled the beans on Mortal Kombat 12 , or was it a simple typo, like when my brain said “Minesweeper ” and my fingers were saying “Minecraft?” Hey, it happens. (And I already fixed it, so don’t bother looking.)

In any case, late 2024 is a good bet: the holiday quarter is busy, but it’s still the traditional money-making season, and the fact that the year is now upon us and there’s still no more precise release window makes me believe that “later” is definitely more likely than “sooner”. There’s also the possibility that Star Wars Outlaws will do a Skull and Bones and go to 2025 and beyond. For now, though, it’s a “2024” unspecific: In a statement sent to PC Gamer, a Ubisoft representative said the blog post was an error and that the release timing remains unchanged.
