Is there still a market for single-player, narrative-driven games? Yes, yes there is. Case in point: Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm have announced that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has become the franchise’s fastest-selling digital launch title. It’s also EA’s top-selling Star Wars title on PC in its initial launch window.
“On behalf of Respawn and EA, we thank everyone for their support of the studio and the team throughout the development and launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Telling a story in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true and the reception from the fans has been incredible,” said Vince Zampella, Head of Respawn. “With the launch of the game, the debut of The Mandalorian and the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan!”
