There is still one day left for the presentation of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, set for tomorrow at 13:30 tomorrow, but some rumors have already leaked out on the net about the Respawn Entertainment game.
One of them refers to the graphics engine used to move production, which would appear to be the Unreal Engine 4. The news immediately attracted the attention of fans: that of Epic Games is one of the most used graphics engines by developers, but it would represent an important innovation for Electronic Arts, which has been using DICE’s Frostbite Engine for its triple-A productions for years.
Shortly after its release, the news was confirmed by EA Charlemagne, the community manager of the video game franchises of Star Wars and Plants vs.. Zombies, both in the hands of Electronic Arts. Being a reliable source, the news may be considered certain at this point: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order will run on Unreal Engine 4 and not on Frostbite as Star Wars Battlefront 2 and other great EA productions, including Battlefield 5 and Anthem.
In this regard, said also Jason Schreier of Kotaku, who seems to be very optimistic about the success of the project: “It is the first single player game of Star Wars for a long time now, there are many talented developers on the team, and they had the right amount of time to work on it. If it is a great success, then maybe it will make EA understand that not all titles have to run on Frostbite by force “. What do you think about it? Yesterday, meanwhile, the possible cover of the game was also leaked.
Very optimistic for this one. It's the first single-player Star Wars game in forever, there's a ton of talent on the team, and they've had a fair amount of time to work on it. And hey, if it's a big success maybe it'll even convince EA that not everything needs to be on Frostbite https://t.co/CgILCUzhqI
