there’s a new Star Wars game dropping holiday 2019 called Jedi: Fallen Order, and it’s being made by the people behind Titanfall 2 (Respawn)...all we know so far is that this game will be dark and gritty, and will take place during a time when Jedi are hunted following the rise of the Empire in Revenge of the Sith…there’s no trailer, key art, or anything else, but given that Respawn is behind the game, there’s plenty of reason to be excited…

I doubt it will be SP focused. EA isn't interested in SP at the moment, Respawn is a MP pedigreed Dev (largely made up of Infinity Ward's original Call of Duty Team), and the market is in love with Fortnight & PUGB right now. EA will fill its stables with pretty versions of those games.

If EA was to do a Star War focused SP it would have given that to BioWare. They have strong story telling roots and already have a couple successful Star War franchises. It had given one to Visceral (Dead Space fame, which made sense, ), but we all saw how that panned out. EA is too driven by whatever the masses are throwing money at this week.

Yet titanfall 2 had one of the better single player fps campaigns in recent years so for know I choose to think we might get a decent one here too.

Bioware is (alledgedly) in the doghouse in the eyes of EA, and apparently have all resources dedicated to Anthem + a little DA pre production. I don't think they could handle a Star Wars SP game right now.

Compared to what? Compared to Battlefield and Call of Duty SP? Sure. Compared to SP focused games like Mass Effect, Dishonored or Deus Ex? Not even close. If they are making a MP game with a tacked on SP, then I agree with you. If they are making a SP centered game, then the choice doesn't make sense. I'm not saying Respawn cannot make a good SP, Titanfall 2 was better than I expected it to be, and the early CoD games had decent SP. However only in that context. If you are only used to the flimsy tacked on SP that tends to come with MP centered games. If you are used to playing deep, story driven games, than much less so.

That makes sense given what we've seen, and also part of why I hate EA. My point was, BioWare should have been tasked with the SP Star Wars game from the beginning. Anthem should have been given to Respawn or one of the other MP focused Devs. I hope it defies all odds and turns out to be great, but it irritates me that EA keeps trying to shoehorn Studios into whatever genre they think will make them the most money, and then punishes them when it doesn't pan out as well as they want.

Electronic Arts said today that its next Star Wars game, to be called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, will come out this fall...little is known about Fallen Order other than that it will be a third-person, single-player action game that’s considered canon in the Star Wars universe...it will feature an unnamed Jedi character during the events after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith...

I don't give a fuck. Any single player star wars will at least be ok. EA will cast a pall on it but I will take what I can get.

Oh and Jedi academy anyone? No brainer to bring back lightsaber battles. Oh wait, tie fighter. Oh wait. EA is fucking stupid. Nm

Sounds a little too much like Force Unleashed which isn't a bad thing as I enjoyed that game.

the first Force Unleashed was pretty good...I loved wiping out large groups of Stormtroopers with my light saber or throwing my saber at Darth Vader...was very arcade-y but fun...good times

The key would be primarily SP, with maybe Coop mechanics.

Titanfall 2's SP campaign was actually really good, if not absurdly short, so there is that.
and a nice Star Wars SP experience like Jedi Academy or KOTOR would be pretty awesome.

One thing Force Awakened did well was making the force actually feel powerful.

Cautiously optimistic, but it is EA, I have this bad feeling that anything EA puts out SP wise is going to be a short, shallow shit fest.

I wonder if UBI just glued Star Wars over Far Cry/Assassin's Creed of it would end up being a better game over all.

With friggin' multiplayer too!

Otherwise this game will be another Force Unleashed which was a good game but I miss the Jedi Outcast multiplayer action.

I don't think this will have multiplayer at all (which I'd be 100% OK with.) I hate it when singleplayer games have half-assed tacked on multiplayer.

That being said, I've always wanted a multiplayer-only Star Wars game centered on lightsaber dueling, complete with a super rich character creation and customization system, with a bunch of lightsaber fighting styles, interesting and creative level design from all over the Star Wars universe, and of course above all, a complex, easy to learn but difficult to master saber combat system. Make it free to play but with paid cosmetic items and it would fucking print money.

Will believe it when I see it. And even if I see it, I will still wait several months after release to believe it given the propensity of publishers to sneak in MTXs via a patch after release.

Knowing EA they probably took what was the full game and cut it in half. One half is the base game that will be released at full price then the other half will be released as 2-3 DLCs for $20 a piece.
