Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella teases a dark Star Wars game for holiday 2019.                  EA Games

It's called Jedi: Fallen Order. At this point, Respawn did not confirm which platforms the game will be released on or if the game is single-player or multiplayer. "So it's gonna be spectacular".

What Zampella did tell us is that the game will be set in between Episodes III and IV when the Jedis were being hunted down to extinction. Aside from that, all we know is that the game will drop sometime during the 2019 holiday season.

The game was announced during EA's keynote at E3 2018 and while details are scarce, the Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella says you can expect the new game to be "dark, very dark". Maybe. It's a Star Wars game with a huge lead time - it could be canceled! "On top of that, I get to do it at Respawn, a studio comprised of the most talented collection of game makers, creators, visionaries, and (most importantly) advocates for the player, that I have had the good fortune to work with".

Star Wars is a hot property and EA will want to keep the hype surrounding it alive.

Battlefront 2 is also getting Clone Wars DLC later this year, with General Grievous, Obi Wan Kenobi, Count Dooku and Anakin Skywalker all being added into the heroes and villains line-up.
