It was only a matter of time before we got news of a sequel for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Not only has Respawn Entertainment announced that they do have a sequel in development, but they have also announced that the studio has multiple Star Wars titles in development.
EA and Lucasfilm games released a press release today confirming that the studio had these multiple projects in the works. Besides Jedi: Fallen Order, it was announced that one game would be an FPS game with Peter Hirschmann who previously acted as executive producer on the original Battlefronts being involved, as well as a strategy game produced in a publishing collaboration with Bit Reactor.
The press release stated:
Game Director Stig Asmussen and his team at the studio are already working on the next game in the action adventure Star Wars Jedi series, and are joined by two new teams working to deliver additional unique Star Wars gameplay experiences across multiple genres. Leading the development of Respawn’s all-new Star Wars first-person shooter game is Peter Hirschmann, Game Director at Respawn, who has a long and accomplished history with the Star Wars franchise. The third title is a Star Wars strategy game developed through a production collaboration with the newly formed studio Bit Reactor, helmed by games industry veteran Greg Foerstch. Respawn will produce the new Star Wars strategy game while Bit Reactor leads on the development of the title.
While Star Wars has always been a big part of the industry, there are plenty for Star Wars gaming fans to be excited about in the future. Besides these three games, Ubisoft has also announced an open-world game set in the Star Wars universe, while Quantic Dream has announced a narrative-driven game set during the High Republic era, called Star Wars: Eclipse. Star Wars Port Studio Aspyr is also working on a full remake of Knights of The Old Republic, which is currently set to release as a console exclusive for the PlayStation 5.
