Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Reveal Time Announced

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Reveal Time Announced

Tune into the Star War Celebration this weekend to see Respawn's newest game.

Star Wars' official Twitter account has announced a reveal date for EA and Respawn Entertainment's anticipated Star Wars game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It will be revealed at this weekend's Star Wars Celebration on Saturday, April 13 at 11:30 a.m. PT.

EA announced Jedi: Fallen Order during last year's E3, and it's developed by Respawn (Apex Legends, Titanfall). There aren't a lot of details about the project other than a handful of EA executives have played it and think it's cool. But they would say that, wouldn't they?

One leaker claims that Jedi: Fallen Order takes place after Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith and focuses on a Padawan whose master was killed during the Jedi extermination after Order 66. A plot that mirrors the backstory of existing Star Wars character Kanan Jarrus in the Star Wars: Rebels TV show. Those rumors are unconfirmed, however.

Though Disney says it's happy with its licensing deal with EA, the company has also shut down plenty of high-profile Star Wars games, including a Visceral project headed by Amy Hennig, which EA Vancouver later took over only to have it canceled. But Jedi: Fallen Order appears to have largely avoided any drama.

We'll know exactly what Respawn has in store for us when Jedi: Fallen Order is revealed this Saturday. EA is still working on other Star Wars projects as part of its licensing deal with Disney, including a new, smaller Star Wars game from EA Vancouver, and ongoing support on Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Meanwhile, Respawn is also working on Apex Legends and a mysterious Titanfall project for later this year.
