The Summer of Gaming has truly arrived, as we are getting an onslaught of rumors, reports, and whatever the Internet can imagine. The latest story is now Star Wars related. Not just that, but it’s all about Ubisoft’s first foray into the science-fiction franchise. We’ve long heard the rumor of an open-world game being in development by Massive Entertainment. It was first mentioned back in January 2021 and it seems we might finally see more of it soon.
While an early 2024 release doesn’t mean we should expect it in the upcoming PlayStation Showcase or Xbox Showcase, it does mean that they might be revving up marketing for the latest entry sooner rather than later. Supposedly, the game is eyeing a March 2024 release as “another large game” would release alongside Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Skull and Bones, as well as Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.
So far, we still have no clue what exactly the game will be about. There has been a lot of hope that the franchise moves away from the Jedi for a bit and focuses a bit more on the life of a bounty hunter. Getting the chance to play a Mandalorian would be fitting for those that still mourn what could’ve been Star Wars 1313 if it wasn’t canceled back in the day. Plus, The Mandalorian proved just how popular the race is and how fitting they’d be for a game adaptation.
