Ubisoft’s Open World Star Wars Game Could Release Early 2024, Says Report
A new report from Kotaku has stated that Ubisoft’s open-world Star Wars game, codenamed Project Helix could release in early 2024.
The report says that the game is currently scheduled to release this fiscal year (April 2023 – March 2024) and is the “another big game” Ubisoft mentioned in its latest earnings call. According to the report though, Kotaku’s sources believe the current fiscal year target is probably too ambitious, and the title will likely slip into next year (April 2024 through March 2025).
If true, it means we could expect to see some form of announcement at this year’s Ubisoft Forward event.
Insider Gaming reached out to its sources who were able to independently verify that the title is indeed named Project Helix, but was unable to verify the game’s expected release date.
Speaking with sources, it’s understood that the publisher is aiming to be a lot more conservative with its announcements moving forward to improve its public perception. Constant delays to the likes of Skull & Bones have meant that the publisher wants to now announce its titles when their projected release dates can be met confidently, it was said.
On a personal note, I think Project Helix is probably a couple of years out. Ubisoft Massive has been hard at work on Avatar lately and when push comes to shove with hitting a release deadline, Project Helix’s progress could be put on pause.
When do you think Ubisoft’s Open-World Star Wars game will release?
