The story may be headed nowhere on celluloid, but there appears to be hope yet for the Star Wars mythos in video game land: Chris Avellone, a designer and writer who needs no introduction by RPG fans, has revealed on Twitter he helped Respawn shape their upcoming Star Wars game, “Jedi: Fallen Order.” Avellone, whose credits include KOTOR II, Planetscape: Torment, Icewind Dale, and Fallout 2, has added the following to his LinkedIn page: “Narrative Designer/Writer (contractor) did story work, story/character reviews, and wrote cinematic scripts for Jedi: The Fallen Order.”

We don't know much about Fallen Order at this point, but leaks indicate that it will take place shortly after Episode 3, Revenge of the Sith, and will be about a Padawan who managed to survive Order 66. It will also be singleplayer-only, which might seem a bit unusual for Respawn, whose previous games include Titanfall and Apex Legends. But let us never forget that Titanfall 2 was one of the best singleplayer shooters to come along in years (seriously, it's a tragedy that it wasn't a major hit), and adding Avellone to that formula makes it an even more exciting prospect.

Unfortunately, it'll likely be EA'd.

Seriously, as a mental exercise: imagine how EA would fuck up any narratively focussed game that was successfully released by the competition.

Respawn hasn't been completely fucked up by EA like Bioware has, there's still hope.

"Respawn"

Huh?

"Jedi: Fallen Order"

Go on...

"after Episode 3... about a Padawan who managed to survive Order 66."

You have my attention...

"Singleplayer-only"

As all things, believe it when I see it. Sounds cool but will it ever see light of day

Chris Avellone is seriously one of the best in the business. He, out of all the writers in RPG's has my respect. If they don't mess with his vision, it will be good. Without question. But, they probably will and it will be terrible.

P2W Mobile Battle Royale. Will bring about a new age in taking people's money and coin the phrase 'MacroTransactions'.
