‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ and New ‘Titanfall’ Coming This Fall

Electronic Arts will release the next games in the “Star Wars” and “Titanfall” franchise in Fall 2019, the company announced during its Q3 Financial call on Tuesday.

“Respawn also plans to launch a premium game this year that is a new twist on the Titanfall universe. More to come on that in the months ahead,” Electronic Arts’ head Andrew Wilson said in the earnings call. Respawn’s popular “Apex Legends” free-to-play battle royale game won’t be the end of the Titanfall series, and EA is teasing more “experiences” set in the same sci-fi universe.

“We will drive the Titanfall universe forward with Apex Legends live services and a premium game later in the year,” he continued.

“As the live service evolves, Respawn also plans to launch a premium game this year that is a new twist on the Titanfall universe.”

EA’s next Star Wars game will be called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The company had previously looked to 2019 as a broad release window for its story-centered game, which is in currently in development with EA-owned studio and Titanfall creator Respawn Entertainment.

The game’s development is led by the former director of the God of Warseries, with a team of veterans from some of the industry’s biggest action-adventure games, according to Wilson.

“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.”

Wilson said he played a 20 minute demo of “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ last week. “It is exceptional in terms of its level of polish depth and living inside of the star wars world as a Jedi,” he says. Still, little is known about the upcoming Star Wars title other than that it will be a third-person, single-player action game, and will be considered canon in the Star Wars universe.

Describing their early misses in the marketing of “Titanfall 2,” EA CFO Blake Jorgensen states “I think we failed to come to a true creative center for the campaign.”

“We had lost ground against our competitors.”
