Lucasfilm Games announces Jedi: Fallen Order II

Lucasfilm Games has announced three new Star Wars titles in development from Electonic Arts and Respawn Entertainment.

These include a strategy game co-developed by Respawn and Bit Reactor, a first-person shooter (FPS) and a sequel to the critically-acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is available on Game Pass Ultimate.

“We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented teams at Respawn,” said Douglas Reilly, VP, Lucasfilm Games. “They have demonstrated excellence in telling epic Star Wars stories along with best-in-class gameplay across different genres and we are looking forward to bringing more amazing experiences to the galaxy far, far away.”

Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order rejuvenated the franchise's storied history in video games in the wake of Star Wars Battlefront II's monetisation controversy.

“Building on the previous successes of our EA relationship, this new collaboration highlights the trust and mutual respect shared between the world-class teams at EA, Respawn, and Lucasfilm Games,” said Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Walt Disney Games. “Fostered by the expertise and passion within each team, we will create thrilling original games for diverse audiences across the Star Wars galaxy.”

Of all the latest Lucasfilm Games announcements, I'm most excited for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order II. There's also a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic in development for PlayStation 5 (PS5) and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga from TT Games this April.
