Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2 Officially Announced Alongside Two New Star Wars Projects from Respawn


Today, Respawn and Electronic Arts formally announced Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2, the sequel to the highly successful 2019 action/adventure game.

Alongside this expected news, though, we also learned of two additional Star Wars projects in the works at Respawn. One is a first-person shooter game whose development team is directed by Peter Hirschmann, previously VP of development at LucasArts and executive producer on the original Star Wars Battlefront games. The other is actually a strategy game made in collaboration with Bit Reactor, a new independent triple-A studio founded recently by former XCOM veterans such as Greg Foerstch. Bit Reactor is expected to lead development while Respawn will act as a producer on this latter title.

Whereas Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2 is likely to be in the final part of development, though, with rumors that it might come out before the end of the year, these two newly announced projects are relatively new and might take a while to release.

Douglas Reilly, VP at Lucasfilm Games, said:

We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented developers at Respawn. 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.

Sean Shoptaw, SVP at Walt Disney Games, added:

Building on the previous successes of our EA relationship, this new collaboration highlights the trust and mutual respect shared between the world-class teams at EA, Respawn, and Lucasfilm Games. Fostered by the expertise and passion within each team, we will create thrilling original games for diverse audiences across the Star Wars galaxy.

Peter Hirschmann, game director at Respawn, stated:

Working with Lucasfilm Games on a new FPS in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true for me, as this is a story I have always wanted to tell.

Vince Zampella, Group GM and Founder of Respawn, will oversee this new collaboration between EA, Respawn, and Lucasfilm. He also released a brief statement:
