Respawn’s Star Wars game officially titled Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
During the EA Play 2018 press conference, Respawn Entertainment confirmed that their upcoming Star Wars video game will be titled Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order!
The developer confirmed that the game will take place during “The Dark Times” as Obi-Wan Kenobi mentioned in the original movie, and is set between Episodes III and IV as the Jedi Order is being hunted across the galaxy. Jedi Fallen Order will not be available this year sadly, and is targeting a Holiday 2019 release date.
It was previously announced that the game will be a third-person action/adventure title. This new Star Wars game was announced at last year’s E3, but don’t expect any further reveals on it until next year.
“We promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times,” game director Stig Asmussen previously said. “A fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet. Fans should expect the exemplary level of quality first established at Respawn with Titanfall, a game that epitomizes our studio’s dedication to slick, larger-than-life action and fun, groundbreaking mechanics. Moving forward, we couldn’t ask for a better universe in which to continue this journey.”
In further Star Wars news, DiCE announced that this year Star Wars Battlefront II will dive deep into the era of The Clone Wars including four brand new heroes: Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous, Count Dooku, and Anakin Skywalker.
