Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot during the company’s report for the third quarter of the current fiscal year confirmed release dates for two hotly anticipated games – Star Wars Outlaws and Assassin’s Creed Codename: Red.
Let us remind you that Star Wars Outlaws is announced for 2024, but since the announcement last summer, the game has never been shown. According to insider Tom Henderson, the release is scheduled for May, but postponements are possible.
Guillemot said Star Wars Outlaws is still part of Ubisoft’s 2024 plans, saying the action title would be a major milestone for the industry given the appeal of a groundbreaking concept like open world Star Wars.
As for Assassin’s Creed Codename: Red, the open-world action RPG set in feudal Japan has been confirmed for the fall of 2022 and is rumored to be released at the end of 2024.
Guillemot included Assassin’s Creed Codename: Red among the releases of the next fiscal year (from April 1, 2024 to March 31, 2025). Games in the series are traditionally released in the fall, so the project can still make it in time for the premiere in 2024.
The report also mentions that the full list of games coming out in the next fiscal year will be revealed in May. In addition to Codename: Red and Star Wars Outlaws, it includes the free-to-play The Division Resurgence and Rainbow Six Mobile.
Star Wars Outlaws is being created for PC (Ubisoft Connect), PS5, Xbox Series X and S. Where Assassin’s Creed Codename: Red will be released has not yet been revealed, but it is assumed that the game will become part of the Assassin’s Creed Infinity (codename) platform.
