Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Apex Legends, Titanfall, and more. Now they are working on a new Star Wars game. Which, according to previous rumors, is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2.
Last year we began to hear a word of two Star Wars games in development. A sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 3. That said, while Respawn Entertainment did develop Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. In addition, DICE has handled the Star Wars Battlefront series so far. In other words, it’s safe to assume this isn’t for Star Wars Battlefront 3. Which means it’s either Jedi Fallen Order 2 or a brand new Star Wars game.
All the buzz around
Right now, it’s safe to assume this mystery game is a sequel, though officials haven’t confirmed yet. All we know, courtesy of Blair Brown, a senior producer at Respawn is that the studio is working on something involving Star Wars, which we’ve known is the case since last December.
Brown’s tweet suggests that whatever is in the works is still in the early stages of development, but for now, this is just speculation based on the wording.
Excitement on the floor
Three postings for a Senior Character Artist, Level Designer, and Senior Software Engineer reveal that Respawn’s “Star Wars team” is working on a “third-person action/adventure game”, a description that fits the same genre that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is in.
Respawn also said they would love to continue Cal’s story and the games ending set that up so it makes sense. I’m kinda sad about this as I wanted Titanfall 3 first then a Jedi Fallen Order sequel.
That’s if a new job listing over on the studio’s recruitment website is anything to go by, at least, which has an opening specifically aimed at adding to the company’s “Star Wars Team.” According to senior producer Blair Brown over on Twitter, the successful applicant will work directly with them on whatever projects are being developed behind the scenes and represents a fantastic opportunity for anyone with the necessary skills. Speaking of, this is far from an entry-level position, so unless you have 5+ years of experience in the AAA space, it’s unlikely your resume will be considered.
The Bottom Line
From a pure consumer standpoint, however, the above can only be viewed as a good sign of things to come. While fans have known for some time that a second outing for Cal Kestis is in the works, today’s developments suggest the title may have recently left the conception and planning stages.
Above all, what do you think about the new poster? Are you looking forward to the star wars appearance? Let us know in the comments, or feel free to reach out and hit me up directly over on Twitter at @9to5game to talk about all things gaming.
