- "Before working on Star Wars we were working on a different game and it had basically the same pillars that we have in this game, which is thoughtful combat, agile exploration—you know, beyond human—and Metroidvania level design."
- ―Stig Asmussen
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a third-person action-adventure video game with a single-player story. Game director Stig Asmussen, known for directing God of War III, has described the game as having "thoughtful combat, agile exploration, and Metroidvania level design."
- "My background is melee action, so when they came to us and were like, 'We really like the game you're working out and we want to do at some point, but how would you guys feel about doing Star Wars?' we were like, great."
- ―Stig Asmussen
According to Asmussen, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order began as a non–Star Wars game and was adapted into the series after various individuals at Electronic Arts saw footage of early development. When his team first met with Lucasfilm, the company was not interested in a Jedi-centered game; the developers then had to work to create a story that would justify the use of Jedi. The game was first announced on May 4, 2016, and its title was revealed during the E3 press conference on June 9, 2018. Motion capture for the game has depicted a duel between a Jedi and a foe with a red lightsaber.
The game will be released on November 15, 2019. Pre-ordering the game includes an orange lightsaber blade, a unique skin for BD-1, a Mygeeto Campaign lightsaber hilt, and an Umbaran Campaign lightsaber hilt. An exclusive first look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order debuted on April 13, 2019 during Celebration Chicago. The game's merchandise line will appear in Triple Force Friday, which will be held on October 4, 2019. A book titled The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will also be published on November 19, 2019 by Dark Horse Books.
According to Matt Martin of the Lucasfilm Story Group, some hints at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order were included in Star Wars: Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith, a 2017–2018 comic book series written by Charles Soule. Some connections to the comic book series were shown in the game's reveal trailer, such as the Purge Troopers and the Second Sister, which first appeared in the series' thirteenth and nineteenth issues, respectively.
