The upcoming action adventure game is being developed by Respawn Entertainment, and has been confirmed as one of the company's projects that will release in 2019, although an exact release date is not yet known.

In the recent financial report from EA - who will publish the game - the COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen said: "Looking forward, we're delighted to launch 'Anthem', our new IP, to grow 'Apex Legends' and related 'Titanfall' experiences, to deliver new 'Plants vs. Zombies' and 'Need for Speed' titles, and to add 'Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order' to our sports titles in the fall."

The game was first announced at E3 in 2018, when Respawn Entertainment CFO Vince Zampella claimed it would be scheduled for the 2019 holiday season, meaning it would launch in late November or early December.

However, the new release window of "the fall" suggests the title could be set to hit shelves a little earlier than first thought.

'Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order' is set between the events of the 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope' movies, and puts players in control of a Jedi Padawan who survived Order 66 and is now on the run.

Currently, no other plot details or gameplay mechanics have been confirmed, but Zampella did announce that you'll be able to use a lightsaber.
