Now Playing: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Announcement | E3 2018

E3 2018 got its unofficial kickoff on Saturday with the EA Play press conference, where the publisher finally unwrapped the future of one of its Star Wars games currently in development, Jedi Fallen Order. Although there wasn't any video or gameplay footage, Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella was able to offer a few details on the new game in production at his studio, which is best known for the Titanfall series.

Respawn's new Star Wars game is titled Jedi Fallen Order. It will be set between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope, during a period of time when the galaxy was plagued by darkness and the Jedi were being hunted. There are few details on who the protagonist is, but players will assume the role of a surviving Padawan, meaning you'll get to wield a lightsaber. The game is scheduled for release during the holiday season in 2019, but unfortunately we don't have any more ideas about what will set this game apart from.

Late last year, EA shut down Visceral Games and said it would be revamping the single-player Star Wars game it was working on. An open-world game is also planned. No new details on those were shared during EA Play, nor do we know exactly when either one will be released. As for Respawn's other teams, it has two more games in the works, but again, those were not showcased during EA Play.

E3 will continue along tomorrow with press conferences from Microsoft and Bethesda, and then even more to follow on Monday and Tuesday. Follow along with our full schedule to plan your viewing.

I think they need to remake Star Wars Galaxies, pre combat upgrade, and make Jedi hunting the sales pitch.

I would love that.

@og_gamerzzz: Um...she's good for around 3 billion dollars right now. Solo was just extremely bad timing for a release, between Deadpool and Infinity War...It was a solid movie.

Why announce it when disney was just looking to take the star wars license elsewhere?

I know there was no logo, but use your head; you write stuff for a living.

Assuming we are even getting the game visceral were working on ( and the only Starwars game I have been looking forward to for years ). If what Respawn is working on, is what has become of that project I'm gonna be really pissed.

@stev69: that game most likely no longer exists, visceral probably had something tension driven where this sound like an action oriented project. I'm still optimistic but disney is looking to retract the star wars license from EA so this may never even see a release

@getshwifty94: Disney looking to retract the license from EA is purely a rumor at this point.

Titanfall 2 was a solid game, this could be good.

@icing: It actually had a very entertaining story. The characters, levels and writing were good. There really aren't many games out there with both Singleplayer and Multiplayer that are hard to complain about. Narrative was a bit dull, but the first game was purely multiplayer after all.

Respawn has some chops, Titanfall and Titanfall 2 were awesome. Best news out of the EA camp today if you ask me...

I'm loathed to give EA any of my money, and I'm pretty bored of Star Wars as a whole, but a darker themed game coming from Respawn?? My attention you have.

This would sound far more promising if you played as the bad guys hunting down the remaining jedi.

@Hoogovens: Force Awakens already did it. Did you play it?

Avatar image for deactivated-5b2c8e0382c99

@Thanatos2k: The Force Awakens was a movie, not a game. I think you mean Force Unleashed.

@Hoogovens:

It doesn't really make a difference either way from the details we have unless you just wanna play an evil character. The vast majority choose to be good in games anyway.

@spaced92: I also always play as the "good guys" given the choice. There have just been a ton of Star Wars games where you save the day with a lightsaber against stormtroopers and a sith lord. I don't know if I want just another one of those. It would be nice for a little more variety from that license. Also, knowing the timeline and the ultimate fate is that most of the jedi are hunted down and killed it feels like kind of a bummer to know you'll be stuck on the inevitable losing side.

Does anyone else find cos-players to be really sad, and pathetic?

@Sgt-Damain: Also really sad and pathetic: people who are eager to advertise their dislike of something in search of praise. From strangers.

@Sgt-Damain: Right there with you. The guys who think they’re hot are very lonely nerds.
