Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a hit for Electronic Arts when it launched in 2019, and now Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 has officially been announced by the publisher along with two other titles.

The sequel will see Cameron Monaghan return as Cal Kestis. Respawn game director Stig Asmussen will oversee development on Jedi: Fallen Order 2. While no release date was given, reporter Jason Schreier stated it “has been in production for a while and should be out this year or next.” However, the shooter and strategy games appear to be years away from releasing.
The other two Star Wars games will also be overseen by Respawn with one being a first-person shooter, which is a natural fit for the Titanfall and Apex Legends developer. The shooter will feature Peter Hirschmann as the game director. Meanwhile, the third title will be a strategy game by Bit Reactor with Respawn producing.
“We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented developers at Respawn,” Lucasfilm Games boss Douglas Reilly said. “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.”

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an action-adventure game that adopted the Metroidvania style of exploration and progression. The gameplay, combined with the focus of a fully single-player narrative, was a massive hit for fans, with the game earning rave reviews and selling more than ten million copies in just a year.
The news of a sequel for the game comes after Electronic Arts had committed to the series in August 2021. During an earnings call, the company promised to “continue to invest” in the series, essentially confirming that they would be making another game following its massive success. Reports of the Dead Space remake have even cited Fallen Order as a success and a reason that EA saw value in making more single-player games.
