Vince Zampella, co-founder of Respawn, made a brief appearance during EA's Play event ahead of the official E3 conferences, revealing the game would take place between Episodes III and IV in the saga. Why could it be a new Star Wars game?
Zampella teased that players will step into the shoes of a Jedi on the run. When pressed, he added it will be set between Episodes 3 and 4. He also revealed that players would assume the role of a Jedi.
It was previously announced that the game will be a third-person action/adventure title.More news: Enzo Perez replaces Manuel Lanzini in Argentina squad

Respawn's new game is only one of several Star Wars irons EA has in the fire. The big one is the title: The game will be called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
We first learned about Respawn's Star Wars game during E3 2016, and a few more details about the project have finally surfaced two years later. Star Wars: Fallen Jedi Order will showcase the time in which the Jedi are being hunted down by the evil Empire.
Plus, we know from the Darth Vader (2017) comic that Quinlan Vos is indeed alive, so how awesome would it be to play him in the Star Wars storyline, if they do in fact include it within the game's contents?
