While we no longer count the video game projects linked to the license Star wars, here is another new title could well be announced in the months which follow… Well, not very new. The always very knowledgeable American journalist Jeff Grubb has hinted that a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the action-adventure game from Respawn studio and published by Electronic Arts, could be officially unveiled soon …
An announcement before E3?
It was during the GrubbSnax podcast for the Giant Bomb site that Grubbthis sequel to the 2019 game. According to him, an official announcement would be expected before the next E3 2022 show — namely, before the start of next June. More precisely, Electronic Arts would reveal the project around the month of May. Obviously, you have to take this rumor with the usual tweezers; world premieres can be very quickly deprogrammed and reprogrammed on the fly by editors, but it is almost certain that a Jedi: Fallen Order 2 either in the boxes of the Respawn studio — or its publisher.
Huge commercial success and great critical success, it would have been strange not to see Electronic Arts capitalizing to the maximum on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Few of the games with more than 10 million copies have gone without a follow-up — and Andrew Wilson, boss of EA, does not intend to drop this financial windfall anytime soon. In May 2020, the CEO of the American publisher announced that Jedi: Fallen Order was “the first episode of a brand new license“… But at this time, no sequel has been either by the publisher or the Respawn team.
The force has not said its last word
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order follows the adventures of Cal Kestis, one of the last surviving Padawan Jedi, in his quest to restore the Jedi Order, shattered after the events of Star Wars Episode III. He will be hunted down throughout his journey by the forces of the Imperial Inquisition — and should follow the usual initiatory route of the lightsaber knights. Originally released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, the title has since received a Google Stadia version, as well as an update for the next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles.
