We’ve known for some time that Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment was at work on a project set in the Star Wars universe, and at EA Play 2018, the studio shared some of the first details regarding its anticipated Star Wars title.

During EA Play 2018, Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella, as he previously indicated earlier this week, gave a few brief bits of info revealing what Star Wars project the company is currently working on.

Zampella said that the game is called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and detailed that the game will take place in between Episode III and Episode IV, in the “dark times when the Jedi are being hunted.” While exact gameplay details weren’t shared just yet, Zampella did say that you will get to play as the Jedi, in some capacity, though we’ll surely get more specific details on the game as it gets closer to release.

In addition to the name and setting, Zampella said that the game is currently targeting a release window of Holiday 2019, though no exact platforms for the game were announced at this time.
