Now the director of that game, Amy Hennig, has reacted to the news about Jedi: Fallen Order - and also offered some more insight into what her cancelled Star Wars game was going to be like, saying that it was supposed to "look and feel like Uncharted". This narratively-driven single player game puts you in the role of a Jedi Padawan who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66 following the events of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith.

It's been almost a year since Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order was announced at E3 2018, but new details were finally revealed during a panel at this year's Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, where the first trailer was finally shown and a release date was confirmed: November 15, 2019.

Star Wars had previously announced that Rian Johnson would be working on his own trilogy in the Star Wars universe while Benioff and Weiss would be working on their own Star Wars films.

So what does the next phase of Star Wars look like? While last week fans were high on the anticipation of Star Wars 9-which we now know is titled Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker-the excitement was undercut a tad when Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that after Skywalker, the films will be taking a bit of a hiatus. This combat system is intuitive to pick up, but takes training and practice to fully master its nuances as you gain new powers and abilities along your adventure. The game is exclusively single-player and story-driven, with no microtransactions. Explore and overcome a wide range of challenges focused on combat, exploration, and puzzle-solving. After hearing about an upcoming Star Wars game again in 2019, it's understandably hard to let yourself be excited, but despite the doubt and disappointment that hovers over the Star Wars game franchise, perhaps not all hope is lost.
