When Jedi: Fallen Order, the Star Wars game from the creators of the Titanfall series, was first announced at E3, there weren’t a lot of details. Respawn founder Vince Zampella sat in a crowd at the EA press conference and announced the title, referenced the Star Wars prequels, confirmed a 2019 release, and basically left it at that. Now it appears we’ll be seeing our first real look at it in mid-April as part of Lucasfilm’s annual Star Wars celebration.
The news comes from the surprisingly often-used EA Star Wars account, which announced that April 13 will be the reveal date for the anticipated title.
Did you hear? #StarWarsJediFallenOrder will be at #StarWarsCelebration Chicago! See the game for the first time on April 13th.
Plus, hear from @MattLanter about his work on #StarWarsBattlefrontII. https://t.co/vE0oPnYDSZ

They don’t say you will need to be physically in attendance to see the game, so it’s a safe bet that whatever they show will also be shown on the internet in the form of a stream or trailer.
EA has recently found itself with a dearth of Star Wars games despite being the exclusive video game license-holder for one of the biggest IPs of all time. The company is likely counting on Jedi: Fallen Order to wow naysayers, especially after the controversies that plagued the release of DICE’s Battlefront II. Respawn’s new title is scheduled to release Holiday 2019.
How do you expect Jedi: Fallen Order to play? Are you expecting, or actually hoping for, a Titanfall 2 campaign with a Star Wars skin? Let us know below in the comments.
