Respawn Entertainment is planning to announce a sequel to its critically acclaimed Star Wars game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, this year.
The claim comes from Jeff Grubb, who spoke on today’s episode of GrubbSnax and reported that the sequel to the action-adventure hit starring Jedi Knight Cal Kestis will be announced in either May or a date before this year’s E3 show, which is slated to take place as an online-only event.
“Expect to hear about the game in a significant way before E3,” Grubb said, adding that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s sequel has a small chance of coming out this year. The title is more likely to release in early 2023, however.
“A galaxy-spanning adventure awaits in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new third-person action-adventure title from Respawn Entertainment,” reads the official description for the game.
“This narratively driven, single-player game puts you in the role of a Jedi Padawan who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66 following the events of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities and master the art of the iconic lightsaber – all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors.”
Respawn Entertainment is the same studio behind the Titanfall games and Apex Legends, the popular battle royale shooter. Originally released in November 2019 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has gone on to sell over 10 million copies.
