Update: Well, it's officially official now! Star Wars Outlaws will indeed launch for Xbox Series X and Series S on August 30th, with pre-orders available today. You can check out the brand-new Story Trailer up above.

"Play up to 3 days early with Gold or Ultimate edition, which includes the base game and season pass. Pre-order now and receive the Kessel Runner Bonus Pack including cosmetics for your speeder and The Trailblazer starship!"

Original story: We have a premature update on Star Wars Outlaws! Following on from last month's regional age ratings which hinted at a nearby launch, the game's release date of August 30th has now been outed.

A new leak comes from the official Ubisoft Japan YouTube channel, who inadvertently included launch details in the video description of its upcoming trailer, which has now been set to private. The game's new story trailer will drop at 5pm UK time, where it should confirm an August 30th release date for Star Wars Outlaws on Xbox.

According to Japanese outlet Gematsu, Outlaws will also arrive three days early for folks who pay up for either the 'Gold' or 'Ultimate' editions of the game - bringing the release date forward to August 27th for the most eager of intergalactic outlaws.

Anyway, we should have more information on this directly from Ubisoft later today, but for now, you can expect your next big Star Wars adventure to arrive on Xbox in late August 2024.
