Star Wars fans are eagerly anticipating brand new details regarding the final entry in Disney’s Sequel Trilogy at this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, but some news today provides a whole other reason to get excited. Games publisher EA, which holds the license on all things franchise-related in the games industry, released a tantalizing post over on Twitter concerning Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.
The single-player, story-driven title, which was first officially named at last year’s E3, has been kept under a veil of mystery ever since, with only a brief description being provided on the game’s official website. The developer in charge of the project, Respawn Entertainment, has previously worked on the Titanfall series under EA, having recently tried its hand at the battle royale genre with Apex Legends (perhaps you’ve heard of it?). That game, which launched back in February, has singlehandedly elevated its creator’s name to household status, a reputation that could fly even higher with Jedi Fallen Order.
The official announcement, which you can feast your eyes on below, features a short graphic teasing the game, as well as the phrase “Don’t Stand Out.” What that alludes to, at this point, is anyone’s guess, but we, as well as the rest of the world, will no doubt get some answers this coming weekend.

As for what EA and Respawn plan to exhibit remains to be seen, but it should be noted that the Tweet makes no mention of a gameplay reveal. Now, that doesn’t necessarily rule out a live showcase of the title running in real-time, but fans also shouldn’t be surprised if a cinematic teaser trailer is what’s being primed for attendees on Saturday. Focus, for sure, will primarily be on Star Wars: Episode IX, and if I had to guess, this early look at Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will serve as a bit of hype before more in-depth details come around the time of E3 in June.
Either way, we’ll be sure to cover every last tidbit revealed at the show, so keep those peepers peeled.
