With EA’s Star Wars exclusivity set to expire next year, the publisher has finally announced a bunch of new games inspired by a galaxy far, far away. In addition to confirming that Respawn Entertainment has a 2019 sequel smart Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in the process, EA announced today Apex Legends-producer has two other people Star Wars projects in development.
Outside Jedi: Fallen Orders 2, these new games Includes a first-person shooter due to Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond directed by Peter Hirschmann and a strategy game directed by the former XCOM art director Greg Foertsch, whose new Bit Reactor studio will be collaborating with Respawn. EA notes that Hirschmann is the producer on the original matrix but it looks like the upcoming FPS will be a new Star Wars game, not a successor to the latest installment of the series due to Battlefield DICE studio.
The post announces new games that double as recruits in a time of unprecedented competition for developer talent, but it seems Jedi: Fallen Orders 2 nearly finished, with the former Kotaku Editor Jason Schreier reports it could be released as early as the end of the year.
It was a tough decade of licensed games give Madden publishers say the least, with nearly as many games canceled as were released. In the meantime, those that have been brought up are not without controversy. Star Wars: Battlefront II infamous has become zero for debate about pay-to-win loot boxeseven attracted congressional scrutiny, and eventually drove the entire industry out of exploitation.
However, one of the bright spots is Jedi: Fallen Ordersa straight forward action adventure with Metroidvania and elements Dark souls-lite combat. It’s therefore not surprising that after the game’s critical and financial success, EA decided to tear it all down. Star Wars eggs in the basket Respawn.
Hopefully, the basket doesn’t break. Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella, who will oversee EA’s Star Wars projects, also recently be the defacto head of Battlefield after last year’s disastrous debut Battlefield 2042.
