He also confirmed you'd be playing a Jedi in the title, which takes place when they're being hunted during a period of "dark times".
That's a studio you want doing a big-scale, story-heavy Stars Wars game.
We have nearly no details whatsoever regarding Star Wars: Fallen Jedi Order, as it was just briefly mentioned by Respawn founder Vince Zampella during the EA press conference. Don't expect it to be a full on, proper announcement as he also mentioned that the studio isn't yet ready to "talk about all of the wonderful things" it has in development. The game will be set in the years in between cinematic Episodes III and IV, while the title implies sometime after the Jedi massacre of Order 66.
We know nothing else about the game, even what genre it is in (although, Respawn being the developer does mean it's likely a first-person shooter).
Dan Casey is the senior editor of Nerdist and the author of books about Star Wars and the Avengers. It is still unclear if the game will contain any multiplayer elements.
In addition to the name and setting, Zampella said that the game is now targeting a release window of Holiday 2019, though no exact platforms for the game were announced at this time.
Respawn's new game is only one of several Star Wars irons EA has in the fire. Zampella said that Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is slated for a 2019 Holiday launch.
