"Exceptional" - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gets high praise from EA

Platforms: All

During their earnings call this week EA addressed the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and described the game as 'exceptional', they also pencilled in a release window of this Autumn.

EA CEO, Andrew Wilson, said "this game’s development is led by the former director of the God of War series, with a team of veterans from some of the industry’s biggest action-adventure games. It’s very far along in development and having spent time with it recently myself, it plays spectacularly well. This game truly captures the fantasy of becoming a Jedi, and we will have a lot more to share soon."

Little is known about the game, but preview builds are now out there and we're told we should expect to see more of the game very soon. The game is being developed by Respawn, who previously brought us the Titanfall games and most recently, Apex Legends.

Blake Jorgenson, EA's CFO said in the call "just looking at Apex Legends should give context of what a superior set of game developers sit in Respawn. This team of people is exceptional and the type of game they’ve built and the innovative level of that game. And second, you’ll start to see in the next few months glimpses of the Star Wars game and I think you’ll be blown away by what you see. We’ve played 20 plus minutes of it last week and it is exceptional in terms of its level of polish, depth and living inside of the Star Wars world as a Jedi and I think people will be blown away by it.|

EA recently canned another of their Star Wars games that was in development at their Vancouver studio. Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is reported to be a third-person story based game so we have some hope that the calibre of the developers might bring us something special. The game will be set around the time of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and will chronicle the fall of the Jedi order.

As soon as we have footage we'll share it here.
