At EA Play this afternoon, Electronic Arts confirmed that it is indeed working on a Star Wars game, previously rumored as an open-world game.
The game’s title is Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, which makes it clear we’ll be playing around in the Jedi lore. It’s also set during the Dark Times when Vader and Palpatine are busying themselves hunting down all the remaining Jedi, which puts it somewhere in the 20-year period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
EA says the game is scheduled for “holiday of 2019,” so there’s something big to look forward to next year. Aaaaand that’s it – it’s not ready to be shown at E3 this year, unfortunately.
