EA and Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is planned to launch Fall 2019.
Although it’s very hard to trust anything published by EA seeing as Anthem is a mind-numbingly boring looter shooter that has everyone worried about BioWare’s future, Repsawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a title that will naturally make gamers excited due to it featuring glowsticks, the force, and whatever else makes the intellectual property so special and iconic. While rumours have previously suggested that Respawn’s contribution to the franchise will be a 2019 title, an announcement has just confirmed that it will indeed be released in the Fall of this year.
The Star Wars website has announced that Respawn’s newest and most highly-anticipated project will be shown off in April:
“In a special panel on Saturday, April 13, EA and Respawn will pull back the curtain on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, in which gamers will meet a Padawan who survived Order 66 and explore the galaxy in the time after the fall of the Jedi Order.” The post further states that the “discussion will feature never-before-released details ahead of the game’s fall 2019 release.”
Hopefully we’ll see a trailer and some gameplay rather than a behind-the-scenes making of video, and hopefully Respawn’s project will be good enough to make us cautiously optimistic.
In other EA news, Anthem only met half of Mass Effect: Andromeda’s physical sales during its opening launch week, and Amy Hennig has said she “wishes” people got to see more of her cancelled Star Wars project.
