STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER Sequel Officially Announced Along With Two Other SW Games
Though we don't have a title or release date, EA has officially announced that a direct sequel to Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is in development along with a new Star Wars FPS and strategy game.
Fans have been anxiously awaiting an update on plans for a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel, and EA has officially announced that a direct follow-up to 2019's best-selling video game is now in development along with two other Star Wars games.
No title or release date were revealed, but we do know that the Fallen Order sequel will once again be directed by Stig Asmussen, who worked on the first game. Details on the other games are also sparse, but one will be a first-person shooter led by Peter Hirschmann, while the other will be a strategy game developed by Bit Reactor.
Respawn founder Vince Zampella is set to oversee this new three-game initiative, which is described as "a new phase of EA's relationship with Lucasfilm."
“We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented developers at Respawn,” said Douglas Reilly, VP, Lucasfilm Games. “They have demonstrated excellence in telling epic Star Wars stories along with best-in-class gameplay across different genres and we are looking forward to bringing more amazing experiences to the galaxy far, far away.”
“Building on the previous successes of our EA relationship, this new collaboration highlights the trust and mutual respect shared between the world-class teams at EA, Respawn and Lucasfilm Games,” said Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Walt Disney Games. “Fostered by the expertise and passion within each team, we will create thrilling original games for diverse audiences across the Star Wars galaxy.”
Work is already underway on all three games, so we should have some updates to share fairly soon - although there's a chance EA will want to save any major announcements for E3 in June.
