Rumors suggest that the next-gen version of Jedi: Fallen Order, the action-sci-fi game from the Star Wars franchise, will be released in the very near future. Indeed, several resellers have already listed the release of the game on PlayStation 5.
If there is one Star Wars game that will have marked the previous generation of consoles, it is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order released on November 15, 2019 for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Then, the game was finally released on November 10, 2020 on Xbox Game Pass. Now, several re-sellers have listed the game for release on PlayStation 5.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order due June 11 on PS5?
A potential leak suggests that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will arrive on PlayStation 5 in two days. Respawn Entertainment’s action-adventure title puts players in the role of Cal Kestis, a young Jedi who survived the events of Revenge of the Sith and must attempt to rebuild the Jedi Order on his own.
The publisher Electronic Arts had already confirmed that the game would receive a free update for the current generation of consoles, in order to take full advantage of the power available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PlayStation 5. The update level was due to arrive during the summer, although no precise date has been provided. The rumors at the time evoked a release on June 26.

Today and according to several retailers (Mediamarkt, Saturn and others), Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will come out finally June 11 on PS5. Indeed, all mention only one release on the latest Sony console. On the other hand, we can assume that the Xbox Series X / S version of the title will also be released on this same date, although nothing is official.
So of course, the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X / S are able to play games from the previous generation thanks to the backward compatibility, which means that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is technically already playable on these consoles. An optimization update has been available since January, allowing the game to run at higher definition and at 60 frames per second. However, nothing prevents EA from releasing an independent version packed with new features. Answer in two days.
