We will not have to wait much longer to hear about Jedi Fallen Order, Respawn’s upcoming single-player action game set in the Star Wars universe. EA has already announced we’ll be seeing the game at next month’s Star Wars celebration event, but we did get one little tidbit today about the game: veteran writer Chris Avellone was on the project.
The news came from an off-the-cuff tweet today. A fan asked Avellone what he was working on and, being careful to tiptoe around any non-disclosure agreements, he revealed that he just finished up on Jedi: Fallen Order with Respawn.
I can’t say 100% b/c of NDAs, but the ones I can say: I just finished up work with Jedi: The Fallen Order – and beyond that, there’s another big bomb dropping in a month! Er, I mean, maybe. Ahem.

The Star Wars game, which was announced at least year’s E3, was detailed to take place between the infamous Star Wars prequel trilogy and the original trilogy. Hewing so close to the prequels might be a cause for concern, but with Avellone writing for Fallen Order, it boosts the credibility of the game’s writing quite a bit. Those who don’t recognize Avellone’s name might recognize his work in games like Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, Knights of the Old Republic II, Fallout: New Vegas, and tons more.
It is not clear what other project Avellone is referring to when he talks about the “another big bomb dropping in a month,” but it should be interesting to see.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will be revealed for the first time on April 13.
