Chris Avellone Wraps Work on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Earlier this week we learnt that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is coming to next month’s Star Wars Celebration and today we can confirm that prolific game writer Chris Avellone, whose credits include Fallout 2 and New Vegas, Icewind Dale, Tyranny, Prey, and design lead of Knights of the Old Republic 2, was working on it.

Update from PC Gamer: –

Avellone’s LinkedIn page confirms that he did in fact work with Respawn from February 2018 to January 2019 doing story work, story/character reviews, and cinematic scripts for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It also suggests that there might actually be a connection between Avellone and the mysterious, maybe-Vampire game that Paradox has been teasing.

Avellone’s work on Knights of the Old Republic 2 was fantastic and we can only hope this means positive things for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
