According to Zampella, the game takes place place during the "dark times" where the Jedi are being hunted. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella says it will be "spectacular". The concept does sound pretty good though. The previously untitled game is officially dubbed Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order and will hit store shelves during the holiday 2019 season.
EA Play starts tomorrow, June 9 at 11 am Pacific, beginning with EA's conference. According to the website, the story turns around a Padawan (a trainee Jedi, and nearly certainly the player character) who survives Order 66 (the aforementioned liquidation of the Jedi).

It is doubtful we will see anything else of Jedi: Fallen Order at E3 this year.
Respawn's new game is only one of several Star Wars irons EA has in the fire. This leads us to believe that it will be primarily singleplayer, which is ironic given what happened to Amy Hennig and Visceral Studios' Star Wars game past year. EA Games, which acquired Respawn in 2017, confirmed that the game centers on "a surviving Padawan". We've known about Respawn's Star Wars game since 2016, so it seems like it would be time to show something off. Their obsession with making games that feel unbelievable has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation.
