Respawn’s Vince Zampella took the stage yesterday at the Star Wars Celebration event held in Chicago to share some interesting new bits of info regarding the studios’ latest project, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. Unfortunately, the CEO didn’t say anything about when we can expect to play the game but it looks like the release date was leaked anyway.
A very interesting image has been making the rounds today that shows a promotional pin of some sort complete with the official Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order branding. The picture also indicates that the game will launch on November 15, 2019.
The image was allegedly captured at the Star Wars Celebration event and includes the official logos of all the main companies involved in the project. Namely, Respawn Entertainment, Lucasfilm, and Electronic Arts.
Meanwhile, a recently surfaced Amazon.it listing seems to confirm the leak. The website currently has both the Standard and Deluxe editions of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order up for pre-order and mentions the same release date of November 15, 2019.
November 15 falls a little over a month before the latest Star Wars film hits theaters and a couple of weeks before Black Friday so this release date would make perfect sense from a marketing standpoint. That said, neither Respawn nor EA have made any official announcements regarding the matter just yet. Probably best to take this leak with a grain of salt for now.
Not the First Amazon Leak This Week
Speaking of Amazon leaks, the retailer also leaked the game’s official artwork just a couple of days ago. Vince Zampella confirmed during yesterday’s event that the artwork was indeed legit and later shared the full version via Twitter.
As exciting as that may be for some, the real highlight of the event was when the CEO confirmed that Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will be a single-player only game with no microtransactions.
Also at the event, Lucasfilm revealed that “The Rise of Skywalker” is the official subtitle for Star Wars Episode IX. In addition, fans of the franchise also got to feast their eyes on the first teaser trailer for the upcoming film.
I’m a classic jack-of-all-trades author who loves to write about most topics, though gaming has always been my strong suit. That said, I definitely won’t turn down the chance to cover some juicy news involving superhero movies, Stephen King novels or space travel. Or robots. Or space-traveling superhero robots disguised as Stephen King.
