EA at E3 – Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Game is Jedi: Fallen Order, Will Release Winter 2019
While Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Titanfall 2) hasn’t released any footage of their Star Wars project at E3, they did entice fans with some new details on the project, which they revealed will be called Jedi: Fallen Order.
Set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Jedi: Fallen Order allows players to fill the shoes of an as-of-yet unidentified Jedi Knight surviving in a Galaxy that wants him (or her) dead in the wake of Order 66. The tone for the project is said to be dark in nature, befitting of the “Dark Times” Obi-Wan Kenobi described. Oh, and you’ll get to wield a lightsaber.

They also revealed that the game will be released in Winter 2019, ahead of the release of Star Wars Episode IX. Presumably, this means that Star Wars Battlefront III won’t arrive until 2020 at the absolute earliest. For now, I’d imagine that EA will keep their cards close to their vest about this title until another gaming convention much later this year at the earliest, or at Celebration Chicago at the latest.
