EA Confirms ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ As The Start Of A Franchise

EA’s CEO, Andrew Wilson, has confirmed that last year’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the start of a longterm franchise.

Last year’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order caught gamers off guard with just how good it was. EA’s previous two cracks at the franchise were savaged by fans and critics for their lack of content, use of expensive Season Passes, and a heavy reliance on the controversial Loot Box system for game progression. Jedi: Fallen Order, however, was praised by both fans and critics and remains the arguably best Star Wars game to be released in years.

Since its release, the game has moved over 8M copies worldwide, exceeding EA’s original sales projections of 6M. The game also earned a 79 Metacritic Average for PS4 and 80 average for the Xbox One and was nominated for several Game of the Year awards. A sequel was expected and previously reported on but had not been confirmed by anyone at EA until now

During an earnings conference call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson stated that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be the “first title in an entirely new franchise.” Sadly the CEO did not say when the next game was expected to be released nor did he give away any details as to what the company had planned for the franchise’s future. All we know is that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order does, in fact, have a future at EA.
