EA and Respawn have today announced the production of three new Star Wars games. This supports previous speculations that Respawn was working on a sequel to Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order as well as an unannounced first-person shooter situated outside of the Titanfall universe. The statement marks the start of a “new phase” in EA’s collaboration with Lucasfilm. All three games will be overseen by Vince Zampella, Respawn’s creator, and general manager.
It’s beginning to appear like a slew of Star Wars games will be a big part of the future of the video game business. The Game Awards revealed Star Wars: Eclipse, a game developed by Lucasfilm Games in collaboration with Quantic Dreams. Then there’s the KOTOR remake, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: Hunters, Ubisoft’s open-world Star Wars game, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2, all of which are already on the way.
EA and Respawn Announced the Production of Three New Star Wars games
Given previous reports, the first game is unsurprising. Stig Asmussen will direct the sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, an unexpected smash in 2019 that received critical acclaim and a slew of awards. Second, game director Peter Hirschmann is in charge of a brand-new Star Wars first-person shooter. Hirschmann has been a director at Respawn for six years and is best known for the virtual reality game Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond.
Additional information on any of the three new Star Wars games was not revealed, leaving fans to speculate about what they could see when development begins on any of them. When it comes to the forthcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, there’s at least some indication of where the series’ next edition might go. For the other two, there have been rumors and requests from fans for the narratives for both games, but their plots remain a mystery for the time being.
