Daisy Ridley Discusses The Ending Of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

After a couple of multi-player Battlefront outings, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (out November 15 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC) shifts to a story-driven, single-player focus and introduces a new lightsaber-swinging hero into galactic lore during pretty much the worst period to be using the Force in public.

Recent rumors suggested that Benioff and Weiss' Star Wars films could be set in The Old Republic, a popular time period in the Star Wars universe popularized by BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic game featuring iconic characters Darth Revan, Bastila Shan, and Darth Malak. This is that, amplified by the fact that, while no one really thought Borderlands 3 would be battle royale, we had every reason to believe EA would pull its usual tricks with this game.

While Benioff, Weiss, and Rian might be central to the future of Star Wars, Kennedy did confirm they are looking for new talent, "We have a series of filmmakers that we're bringing into the fold, that we can start to look at as directing talent, and we're trying to bring women into the mix as well". Co-founder Vince Zampella, being a member of EA's executive team, would have sway in protecting the creative direction of any game Respawn creates.

Never has a Star Wars game truly met the vision of a truly immersive large scale fight scene that presents the flawless mix of challenging gameplay, powerful soundtrack, outstanding visuals, and great level design - all within a battle with an unknown outcome that hasn't been presented beforehand in other media. Because it's nice to be told a thing, and then you can experience it with the filmmaker. Hennig's own game based on the license was cancelled, as EA closed Visceral Games in October 2017. The game is exclusively single-player and story-driven, with no microtransactions. "Of course they do, of course we do". So I'm as excited to see it as everyone else.

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".

The rest of the post reveals some new details on the game Hennig's team was developing. It does sound like a pretty good time, but we'll sadly never get to see it come to fruition.
