There’s some news today for those who have been waiting for EA’s next Star Wars game. The publisher has revealed in its quarterly earnings announcement that its next Star Wars title is going to be called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and that it’s going to be released this fall. This makes the release timeframe more precise as the company had previously said it would be out at some point in 2019.
“The game’s development is led by the former director of the God of War series, with a team of veterans from some of the industry’s biggest action-adventure games. It’s very far along in development, and having spent time with it recently myself, it plays spectacularly well,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said.
The story-focused Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is being developed by Respawn, the studio best known for the Titanfall series. The studio recently released Apex Legends, a battle royale title that’s set in the TItanfall universe. Initial reports show that it’s doing very well after launch.
EA hasn’t provided a concrete release date, it has only said that the game will be out in the fall of 2019. This leaves open the possibility of the game being delayed. It’s common for big titles to be delayed if the developer feels more time is required to polish things. So that could happen for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as well if the need arises.
