• "Star War Jedi: Fallen Order" was released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2019
  • The game was announced to get next-gen ports this year
  • "Star War Jedi: Fallen Order" PS5 is rumored to release Friday

Respawn’s action-adventure game "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order" was reported to get a full next-generation console upgrade sometime this year, and, now, it looks like its PS5 port has come earlier than anticipated.

A recent report from The Gamer revealed some retailers in the United Kingdom have already received physical copies of "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order" for Sony's PS5. The report also claimed the game's latest PS5 version would release on June 11. Citing a U.K. video game retailer as its source, the report stated retailers were told by the "head office" there would be an "announcement and release" this Friday.

The latest report seemingly confirmed the "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order" next-gen ports would have a physical launch. It was announced earlier that anyone who owns the game and a PS5 console won't have to purchase the game again since the next-gen upgrade would be free. The game's physical launch is for those who missed it during its release on PlayStation 4 and now owns a PS5.

Unfortunately, the report only mentioned the PS5 port of "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order" and the physical copies of the platform. It did not reveal any details about the game's Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S versions. Despite this, Xbox users should look forward to seeing the game's version releasing soon.

Based on its latest schedule, Electronic Arts has no activity on June 11, which is presumably the date for the game's PS5 port's announcement and release. However, since the date falls within the Summer Game Fest, fans expect the announcement and release would take place at the said event. While the report came from a reliable source, the details are not official.

In this case, fans should temper their expectations and take the latest information as highly speculative in the absence of an official announcement.

"Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order" is an action-adventure title developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. It was launched in November 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game released on Stadia in November 2020.
