Star Wars Outlaws, an upcoming open-world action-adventure game from Ubisoft Massive, had its origins in a fortuitous meeting at E3 2018. Creative director Julian Gerighty revealed that the game's existence resulted from a conversation between Ubisoft Massive's managing director David Polfeldt and Disney at a cafe near the Division 2 showcase. The creative team had always dreamt of creating a Star Wars game, and when they were shortlisted by Disney, it set the wheels in motion for Star Wars Outlaws. This underscores the importance of industry events like E3, where developers can network and forge new partnerships. While E3 has since been replaced by Summer Game Fest, its legacy of facilitating invaluable industry connections persists.
