In addition to it thought the big title reveal was coming yesterday, a “leak” from Reddit claimed the Star Wars: Episode IX title was “Balance of the Force.”
However, doing a 1-second Google search reveals “Balance of the Force” is actually a Star Wars pinball game, and it reveals how desperate various click-bait sites truely are, especially when ad revenue is at its all-time low at the beginning of the year (lol).
I think it is safe to say that “Balance of the Force” is ruled out as the Star Wars: Episode IX title, as being named after a pinball game would be rather lame (not that pinball games are lame, just that the title has already been used, eh?).
The Balance of the Force Star Wars pinball game is officially listed on StarWars.com:
