EA have announced that Respawn Entertainment will finally reveal Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order on Saturday, 13 April 2019, where fans will get the first look at the upcoming game during the Star Wars Celebration special event in Chicago.
Respawn Entertainment may have their hands full with the sudden burst in Apex Legends' popularity but their work on other projects continues. They will reveal Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order during the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, which will run from 11 to 15 April 2019.
The story will revolve around a Padawan who managed to survive the fall of the Jedi order, following the execution of Order 66. Players will apparently be able to "explore the galaxy" and see what became of it in the time after the Jedi fall.
According to the official announcement, this will happen during a panel which will also discuss never-before-released details about the game. The release window for Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order has also been subtly announced as the post mentions a "fall 2019" release.
You shouldn't feel bad about yourself in case you weren't even aware a new Star Wars game is in development as the announcement was probably one of the most awkward reveals in 2018. It happened during E3 and for some reason EA didn't even give Vince Zampella the stage to properly announce the game, as Andrea Rene interviewed him in the seat area.
No Star Wars Jedi Fallen order trailer and not even any art was revealed so far. Therefore, we should hope that more than just details will be revealed during the reveal in April 2019, especially because there will be less than half a year from that point to the projected release date.
On the bright side for Star Wars fans, their wait will likely be shorter than what they expected, given the absolute lack of information from E3 2018 up until this point. It remains to be seen whether EA will cram Star Wars Jedi Fallen order between two major released like they did with Titanfall 2.
