Although nothing has been officially confirmed as yet, that’s a pretty strong indicator that a sequel to the popular Star Wars action-adventure game could be in the works. Then there’s the fact that Respawn – the developers of Jedi: Fallen Order – recently began recruiting for a new single-player game.
“We’re developing a brand new single-player adventure from Respawn Entertainment,” said Respawn creative director Mohammad Alavi via Twitter.
“We’re a small, but ambitious team with a history of dreaming big and making splashes.”
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a huge hit for the company, with the game surpassing a staggering 20 million users back in June. This new hint at a continued franchise seems to suggest we’ll see a sequel eventually
It’s also not the first time we’ve seen hints about the return of Cal Kestis’s and learning more about his story. EA CEO Patrick Wilson previously referred to Jedi Fallen Order as the “first title in an entirely new franchise,” which suggest additional instalments eventually.
And with a promise of new Star Wars games announcements coming in 2022, it might be coming sooner than we think.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft has revealed the beta for Riders Republic is available for three days at the end of August.
