It’s not too surprising given the success that Jedi: Fallen Order has experienced critically and financially since its release. In an appeal to investors last year, CFO Blake Jorgensen said that Jedi: Fallen Order “Far exceeded our expectations” and was to sell 10 million units. Resespawn also put up lists of Jobs in recent months, specifically looking to fill senior positions on the Star Wars team, a hint that Respawn was working on more Star Wars content. Given this, it’s not too surprising that EA is looking for potential follow-ups for such a successful title.

Jedi: Fallen Order stars an all-new character named Cal Kestis, a former Jedi padawan hidden after Order 66 killed most of the Jedis in the galaxy. The game is part of the official Star Wars canon and includes characters from other Star Wars media such as The Second Sister.IGN praised Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, especially its solid cast and solid gameplay that combines Metroidvania with engaging lightsaber combat. Respawn also released the Jedi: Fallen Order DLC for free as part of the May 4 celebration which added a new challenge mode, a new game plus and additional costumes.
