Respawn Announces Development Of 3 Star Wars Games

They took to Twitter today to break this massive announcement.

Respawn Entertainment, the developer behind hits such as Apex Legends, the Titanfall series, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order have announced that three new Star Wars games are in development at the EA-owned studio. 

The three new games in development are:

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Sequel

To the surprise of no one, a new Fallen Order game has been announced. Jedi: Fallen Order was a commercial success, leading EA to greenlight a sequel shortly after its release in 2019

This new title will not sport the name Fallen Order but will be called “Star Wars Jedi:” followed by a new subtitle.

The Fallen Order sequel is expected to release sometime in 2022 or 2023, according to Jason Schreier. Bespin Bulletin has also hinted at a late 2022 release date. The game may be unveiled at the Star Wars celebration on May 4th, and could also be showcased at EA Play this summer. 

FPS Title

A new FPS title is in development at Respawn. The project is being led by director Peter Hirschmann, who served as a producer on the original Battlefront games and was a VP at LucasArts until 2008. 

While Peter has a strong history with the Battlefront series, insider Jeff Grubb has recently stated that he has heard no good news on the future of Battlefront. It is unlikely that this new project is a Battlefront 3.

The FPS title is being developed by Respawns Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond team. Jeff Grubb has hinted that Respawn is prototyping another FPS title as well

Strategy Game Co-Developed With Bitreactor

Bit Reactor is an indie studio from veterans of Firaxis, developer of the Civilization and XCOM franchises. Bit Reactor has stated that their games will be turn-based strategy games. Respawn will co-develop this title with Bit Reactor, however, it is unclear to what extent either studio is involved. 

Respawn is currently juggling multiple projects. Along with their three Star Wars games, they are also developing a live service for Apex Legends and another unannounced title. 

EA‘s exclusivity license on the Star Wars IP ends in 2023, however many studios have Star Wars projects in development. Aspyr, Ubisoft and Quantic Dream are all developing AAA Star Wars titles. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
