Respawn Working on New Star Wars Game Called Jedi: Fallen Order

An upcoming Star Wars game recalls a dark time in the Jedi's history.

Respawn Entertainment is working on a new Star Wars game, according to an announcement at EA's 2018 E3 press conference.

The game is called Jedi: Fallen Order, and it takes place during the "Dark Times," or what the Jedi would consider a particularly bad part of their history—i.e. their mass extinction at the hands of the Empire in between Episode III and IV.

We haven't seen any video of Fallen Order, or any visuals at all. It's a long ways off, and we shouldn't expect the game until Holiday 2019. Paying attention to this one, we are. Don't forget to visit our E3 2018 guide for conference times and a thorough round-up of the show's coolest news!
