Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel confirmed alongside two more new games
Lucasfilm Games and EA have announced a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is on the way, alongside two more brand new Star Wars video games.
Billed as the next instalment in the ‘Star Wars Jedi’ franchise, the sequel will again be developed by Respawn Entertainment, and headed by game director Stig Amussen. The studio is also developing a new first-person shooter title under Peter Hirschmann – who’s previously worked on the original Battlefront games and The Force Unleashed – and producing a Star Wars strategy game in collaboration with developer Bit Reactor.
“We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented teams at Respawn,” said Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly. “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.”
There’s no word yet on when these games will launch, but freelance journalist Tom Henderson reported yesterday that the Jedi: Fallen Order sequel is expected to arrive in the fourth quarter of 2022. That would be three years after the original action-adventure game launched.
The LEGO Star Wars design team told Brickset in 2020 that it chose not to produce sets based on the original Jedi: Fallen Order partly due to its age rating, which is PEGI 16 in the UK and ESRB T for Teen in the US, and partly because it didn’t know whether the game would be popular.
That may yet change for the sequel, particularly with one eye on the company’s new focus on adults and the introduction of its 18+ label. But given the next instalment hasn’t been confirmed explicitly as Jedi: Fallen Order 2, there’s a good chance we could be looking at entirely different characters, vehicles and locations to the first game anyway.
