Respawn announces Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for Xbox One and PC (update)

Updated February 27, 2019: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order should be officially revealed on April 13 at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.

Today, EA Play 2018 took place in Los Angeles and the publisher revealed a lot of new experiences. Even though we didn't see a trailer, Respawn's Vince Zampella announced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for Xbox One and PC. This was a surprising interview, with no one expecting a title or tentative release date.

According to Zampella, the game takes place during "The Dark Times" and you play as a Jedi. It's set between Star Wars: Episode III and Episode IV. The game is expected to launch in November 2019. More information is expected at E3 2019 so we'll have to wait a while to see a trailer or gameplay.

It's unclear if Jedi: Fallen Order will be a first-person or third-person experience. Given the fact that the Respawn team is familiar with first-person shooters like Titanfall, it wouldn't be surprising if that's what the perspective is.

Jedi: Fallen Order seems like a single-player title, featuring a harrowing story. It's unclear if there will be a multiplayer mode at this time. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the project in the coming months.

Hopefully, Jedi: Fallen Order will be a polished experience when it launches next year. Barring any delays, the game sounds like the title many Star Wars fans have been waiting for. Respawn definitely knows how to create an addictive game so the franchise seems to be in good hands.
