The galaxy just got bigger.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order EA

EA has announced that three new Star Wars games from Respawn Entertainment are in development.

EA’s relationship with Star Wars isn’t coming to an end soon. Despite creative exclusivity lasting until the end of this year, EA and Lucasfilm will continue to collaborate for future Star Wars projects. Respawn Entertainment, best known for crafting the Titanfall series and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, will be spearheading the three new projects.

The first project will be a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order which achieved considerable acclaim back when it debuted in 2019. Rumors have suggested that the sequel will hit consoles later this year.

In addition to the sequel, Respawn and EA will also be working on a first-person shooter set within the Star Wars universe. Production on the sci-fi FPS will be led by Medal of Honor co-creator Peter Hirschman, who also previously served as VP of development at Lucasfilm.

The final game in EA and Respawn’s trifecta will be a strategy game spearheaded by Bit Reactor, a new studio that is composed of numerous XCOM veterans developers.

Lucasfilm has a number of Star Wars video games in development. In addition to the EA’s upcoming roster, Ubisoft is working on an open-world game set within the galaxy far, far away. Traveler’s Tales is currently polishing up LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga for release later this year and a Knights of the Republic remake is also in development.

Here is the synopsis for the next game in the Star Wars franchise: LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga:

The galaxy is yours with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga! Play through all nine Star Wars saga films in a brand-new LEGO video game unlike any other. Experience fun-filled adventures, whimsical humor, and the freedom to fully immerse yourself in the LEGO Star Wars universe like never before.
