EA's working on three new Star Wars games, including a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order

EA, alongside Lucasfilm Games, has confirmed that they are currently developing three new Star Wars games, with Respawn Entertainment leading the development and production of all three titles. 

Respawn Entertainment is best known for Titanfall, Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, three games that proved to be incredibly popular for EA. Vince Zampella, the founder of Respawn, will be overseeing this new phase of EA's relationship with Lucasfilm games. 

The first of these new projects is a new game within the Star Wars Jedi series, a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The second title is an unknown first person shooter title. The development of this shooter will be led by Peter Hirschmann, who previously worked on multiple FPS games and Star Wars titles. 

EA's third project will be a strategy game from Bit Reactor, which will be co-produced with Respawn. Sadly, little is known about this planned strategy title at this time. Bit Reactor's team includes developers who have worked on games like XCOM, Civilization, and Elders Scrolls Online.

What follows is EA's press release on these three new Star Wars games. Rumour has it that EA plans to showcase their new Star Wars Jedi game this year at or around E3.
