Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be getting a sequel and it will be announced before E3 2022, according to reporter Jeff Grubb. During an episode of GrubbSnax on Giant Bomb, Grubb said the unannounced sequel may be unveiled in May, or some time before this year’s E3 conference.
“Expect to hear about the game in a significant way before E3,” Grubb said. The reported added that there’s a “chance” that the game could release in 2022. However, it’s a better bet that it will head out in early 2023.
2019’s Star Wars’ Jedi: Fallen Order was developed by Respawn (the studio behind Titanfall) and has sold more than 10 million copies, making it one of the most commercially successful Star Wars games ever. A sequel has been rumored for a while, and Respawn recently hired Halo infinite multiplayer designer Patrick Wren to work on the Star Wars project.
Jedi Fallen Order was released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, before getting free upgrades for the Xbox Series X and PS5.
EA doesn’t hold the rights to exclusively publish Star Wars games anymore, since Lucasfilm and Disney are now working with other companies as well. Ubisoft is currently making an open-world Star Wars game, while Quantic Dream is developing a title called Star War: Eclipse.
