In 2021, Lucasfilms announced that a new open-world Star Wars game was under development with the partnership of Ubisoft Massive. Massive Studio is the studio behind Ubisoft’s hit game The Division. Recently, Ubisoft’s Creative Director Gerighty posted on Twitter that the upcoming and most awaited open-world Star Wars game is scheduled to be launched in 2023.
The new Star Wars game will likely come out after Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
Massive Studio already has a big project on their hand, and the studio is said to be focusing on the game first. Avatar Frontiers of Pandora is also scheduled to be released sometime around 2023. Considering this fact, it is very unlikely that the studio will release the new Star Wars game anytime before the upcoming Avatar game.
According to previous leaks in several other media, shortly after the announcement of the open-world Star Wars game, the game was reported to be playable with very limited access. However, there is no confirmed news about it from the developers yet.
During the announcement of the game back in 2021, CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, said, “Building new worlds, characters and stories that will become lasting parts of the Star Wars lore is an incredible opportunity for us, and we are excited to have our Ubisoft Massive studio working closely with Lucasfilm Games to create an original Star Wars adventure that is different from anything that has been done before.”
The recent tweet from Gerighty surely hyped up the entire Star Wars fanbase a lot, as the fans have been waiting for any announcement related to this title for a long time. 2023 will surely be a great year for the Star Wars fan, as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is also being released on March 17 by Electronic Arts.
Gerighty provided no further information about the open-world game. Fans can only wait longer and hope to hear more about the title in the coming months. No matter what, the game will be a very big project for the studio and one of the best releases of this year.
