Lady Qi'ra Solo: A Star Wars Story

Ubisoft's upcoming Star Wars Outlaws connects to the larger galaxy far, far away in some intriguing ways, one in particular. Remember Emilia Clarke's enigmatic character Qi'ra in the standalone Solo: A Star Wars Story? Considering how that movie ended, it should come as little surprise that the character has been confirmed to return in Outlaws.

Word comes to us by way of Game Informer, which recently featured Outlaws on the cover of the latest edition of its monthly print magazine. While it is unknown exactly what role the character will play, if we had to guess, we'd put money on Qi'ra still being a mover-and-shaker, and a force to be reckoned with.

Star Wars Outlaws takes place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, so the character will have aged accordingly, and GI's Brian Shea confirmed Clarke herself will not be returning to the role. A screenshot from GI (via ScreenTime) gives us a glimpse of the character in-game.

Did you think we had seen the last of Lady Qi'ra? Can you believe we never got a follow-up on that twist ending? Let us know in the comments section below.
