Just Dance 2024 has just been announced with a release date and loads of new songs to go with it.

Just Dance 2024 is one of the newest announcements at Ubisoft's Showcase this E3 2023. It carries on the tradition of the series by including all the hottest songs that this year has to offer. Fans will be able to enjoy songs by BlackPink, Bad Bunny, Miley Cyrus, with more songs being scheduled to release at launch. 

Available to play on the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch, players will have up to 40 new songs to peruse once it's released on October 24. 

We also got yet another confirmation that Just Dance will join other games at the official Esports Olympics. “The Olympic Esports Series 2023 marks another step in supporting the development of virtual sports”, the IOC said in a blog post. “The collaboration with gaming and esports communities will create new opportunities for players and fans alike”.

Together with Tic Tac Bow and Gran Turismo 7, the strategy esports archery game, fans can expect to see various other odd additions at the next Olympics, so keep your eyes peeled.

This latest addition to the Olympic roster is a fun one to say the least, however, that may not be enough to carry it through the competition stages. Personally, I’m finding it pretty hard to understand how Just Dance qualifies as an esports. While Just Dance is a video game most of the action happens physically through dance. 

Unfortunately, for fans of Call of Duty or Overwatch 2, it’s highly unlikely that we’ll see these competitive FPS games join the Olympic roster. This is mainly because both games have such impressive stand alone esports.

Keep up with all of our coverage this announcement season with all of our E3 2023 coverage.
