2023 is definitely a very exciting time to be a Star Wars fan. With several games of the popular franchise anticipated in 2023 and beyond, fans are getting desperate with every passing day. If that wasn’t enough, Ubisoft announced recently that they are in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games and Disney to release an open-world title of Star Wars. Sounds fascinating, isn’t it? We thought so too. Furthermore, fans were sent in a frenzy as the creative director of Ubisoft, Julian Gerighty teased details of a possible announcement of the game. Here’s everything you need to know about the Ubisoft Star Wars game and whether there is a confirmed release date.
What Julian Gerighty said about Ubisoft’s Star Wars Game
Ubisoft’s Star Wars game is the first in the making without the ever-familiar EA Sports at the helm of development. To set things straight and answer your query, there is no confirmed release date announced for the new Star Wars game as of yet. However, the creative director, Julian Gerighty, shared a tiny detail hinting a possible announcement in a tweet recently.

In his tweet on 2nd January 2022, Julian passed his new year wishes but also vaguely indicated that the game could be released sometime in 2023. This piece of news is surely going to get Star Wars fans all over the world pumped up. However, you should take this information with a pinch of salt. The franchise has a handful of games that are slated for release, but Ubisoft’s project surely takes the top spot.
The Story So Far on the New Star Wars Game
Well, if you’re not already aware, Ubisoft opened up registrations for playtests on its Star Wars project in mid–December 2022. However, there was a slight catch. The developers, Massive Entertainment, made it known that they would be prioritizing people who live closer to their studio in Malmö, Sweden.

Like every other playtest, participants have to sign an NDA contract. This prevents them from leaking gameplay and other information to the public. This is the reason we have no idea of how the game looks or what we can expect in terms of its gameplay mechanics. All we are aware of is that it is expected to be a story–driven game that will be set in the Star Wars Galaxy.
Ubisoft is no stranger to open-world titles – the Far Cry series, Assassin’s Creed and the Division 2. All of them are a testament to this very fact. All we can say to Ubisoft until the release is – May the Force be with you!
