Respawn was one of the few studies of Electronic Arts that did not seem forced to use the motor home, the Frostbite of DICE since Titanfall and its sequel were developed with the modified creator’s Source Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The company, however, has gone further with its expected Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order: will use the engine of Epic Games, the versatile Unreal Engine 4, which will make the Star Wars vision of the American team a reality.
The leak has come from Reddit, where the community manager of the Star Wars video games of Electronic Arts has specified the engine of the new Respawn game. How does the software feel? Soon we will resolve the doubt since the recently started Star Wars Celebration will show the first playable content of the title, scheduled for release at the end of this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Meanwhile, you can open appetite with the supposed promotional poster of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
The opening of Respawn to Unreal Engine 4 opens other questions: Will Titanfall 3 run on the Epic engine or will it bet on the Source that has given life to the successful APEX Legends? Will EA allow its studios to opt for other engines in future developments? It is likely that the answers will be known in the coming months, with EA Play being the ideal scenario for this. Do not hesitate to check the schedules and dates of E3 2019 to know what the future of the video game holds.
