Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 is reportedly launching next year
Earlier this year, EA confirmed that Respawn Entertainment is working on three new Star Wars games (more info here), one of which is a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Recent reports have claimed that Respawn's sequel for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be launching next year, arriving on PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. The game is allegedly skipping Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.
According to video game reporter Jeff Grubb, on his latest Q&A video, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 should be available exclusively on current-generation gaming platforms. Announcements for the game are expected within the next month, but not on "May the 4th". The game is due to be revealed at a Star Wars celebration event later in the month.
In 2023, the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PlayStation 5 will all be three years old. It makes sense for games to start abandoning last-generation hardware at this stage of the current-generation hardware life cycle. It is also possible that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 will have moved to Unreal Engine 5, an engine that is designed to more optimally use the hardware capabilities of current-generation consoles.
Respawn Entertainment is currently working on three new Star Wars game. One of these is the aforementioned sequel to Fallen Order, and the two others is a new Star Wars first-person shooter and the other is a new strategy game.
Star Wars Jedi; Fallen Order was easily one of the best Star Wars games to be released over the past decade. Let's hope that Respawn can continue to deliver great Star Wars content to gamers, especially given their increased workload.
