Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Will Rise at Star Wars Celebration in April

Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars game will be revealed.

The first look at Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will be happening at Star Wars Celebration 2019. That news comes to us from StarWars.com, who highlighted a panel focused on Jedi Fallen Order happening at the Star Wars convention. The panel is on Saturday, April 13. Star Wars Celebration 2019 takes place in Chicago, IL on April 11-15.

Jedi Fallen Order takes place in-between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope, following a young padawan who survived the Jedi culling of Order 66. This will be the next proper Star Wars title in the ongoing deal between Disney and Electronic Arts. The last title was 2017's Star Wars Battlefront 2, and before that, Star Wars Battlefront in 2015. EA's studios haven't had a good time of it so far, as Visceral Games was planning one Star Wars action-adventure game that was canceled by the publisher, leading to Visceral's closure.

Star Wars Celebration will also include a panel about Star Wars: The Old Republic. 2019 is supposed to be a big year for BioWare's Star Wars MMO. In a letter to fans last year, BioWare general manager Casey Hudson said the team behind The Old Republic was "envisioning new worlds and storylines that are some of the most ambitious and exciting that I’ve seen yet from that game." The Old Republic hasn't had a proper expansion since 2015's Knights of the Fallen Empire.

Respawn Entertainment has already knocked it out of the park this year with the surprise launch of Apex Legends. The free-to-play battle royale has captured the zeitgeist, reaching 10 million players in a scant 72 hours. All eyes are on Respawn, wondering if it can break the streak of mediocre Star Wars games from EA.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
