EA confirms 3 Respawn Star Wars games including Jedi: Fallen Order sequel
In an announcement on Tuesday, the company officially announced a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, along with two new projects in development at new teams within the Respawn hierarchy.
Firstly, a new Star Wars first-person shooter game is being helmed by former LucasArts veteran and Medal of Honor co-creator Peter Hirschmann, who has previously worked on the original Battlefront games, The Force Unleashed, and more.
Hirschmann most recently directed 2020 VR title Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond.
Respawn will produce the new Star Wars strategy game while Bit Reactor leads on the development of the title, EA said.
Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella, who will be overseeing the games, said: “We are huge fans of Star Wars here at Respawn and we’re thrilled to work with Lucasfilm Games on new titles that we have wanted to make for years. If you want to make great Star Wars games, you should come join us on our journey.”
Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Walt Disney Games added: “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. Fostered by the expertise and passion within each team, we will create thrilling original games for diverse audiences across the Star Wars galaxy.”
