    Exciting times ahead for Star Wars gamers. EA and Lucasfilm Games have jointly announced the Jedi: Fallen Order sequel is, as previously reported, well into development, plus two additional projects from Respawn are in the works too!



    Here's the bulk of the official press release (read the full text here):



    Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games expressed his excitement about having Respawn work on more Star Wars stories following the success of 2019's Fallen Order:



    Work has already begun on all three projects, with the Jedi: Fallen Order sequel expected to hit either in late 2022 or early 2023, and Respawn is looking for folks passionate about Star Wars who can bring their expertise to the teams. Additional information on available job openings can be found at Respawn Careers. Bit Reactor is looking to hire as well -- check out its openings here.

    Respawn is no stranger to the FPS genre, as the company rose from the ashes of Activision's Infinity Ward (creators of Call of Duty) before the studio was rebuilt, plus it's become a household name in EA thanks to the two Titanfall games and the battle-royale spinoff Apex Legends. Moreover, the new Star Wars shooter is being directed by Peter Hirschmann, who previously worked as VP of development at LucasArts, and was executive producer on the original Star Wars Battlefront games.



    Finally, the biggest surprise is the announcement of a new triple-A strategy game set in the Star Wars universe. Although mobile titles kept the spark somewhat alive, it's been a long time since we last saw a big strategic Star Wars game. This new project is especially exciting if we consider it's being handled by the newly formed studio Bit Reactor, created by ex-Firaxis devs (Civilization and XCOM series). Respawn will produce the new game and publish through EA, while Bit Reactor leads on the development of the title.



    Expect many more gaming-related Star Wars news in the coming months as Lucasfilm Games revs up collaborations with studios from all over the world and the next Star Wars Celebration draws near.

    Anyone find it interesting that it's called Star Wars Jedi? That doesn't mean it's a direct sequel to Fallen Order.

    These are all good things and I'm happy about them, but I'm saving my excitement for a reveal with release date attached. Lucasfilm has tenuous luck with videogames, and announcements like these mean nothing until the final product is delivered. Even reveals mean nothing if the game never makes it to the public. (1313 and the Visceral Games project, anyone?)

    My thoughts exactly.

    This is all good news, but I wish Lucasfilm in general would stop announcing stuff so early, before there’s even a title or a logo. Feels like they’re setting fans up for disappointment.
