Officially announced earlier this year, a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is happening, and some apparent details on the upcoming follow-up to the Respawn title have emerged. Among said info is the possibility that the 'Fallen Order’ suffix might be dropped from the title.
Additionally, the game is said to be new-gen only, and set for release sometime next year. That's according to serial info leaker, VentureBeat journo Jeff Grubb, spilling the beans once again on his Grubbsnax show for Giant Bomb (via VGC).
"Star Wars Jedi 2 is going to be new-gen only, where it’s PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and then of course PC," Grubb remarked. "One of the reasons that they’re going to be able to do that is because it’s not coming out until 2023. This game is for sure now not coming out until 2023."
Grubb adds that Respawn not having to “straddle” console generation lines should work to the game's advantage, while ensuring that a broader audience may be in ownership of an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 by 2023. Apparently, Star Wars Jedi 2 had been targeting a 2022 launch.
“It makes it easier to just disassociate yourself with those millions of PS4s and Xbox Ones out in the world when you are in 2023 and you’re going to have several months of making it very easy to get an Xbox Series X, probably a few months before now and then when it’s actually okay to get a PS5,” he stated. “And then at the same time you can take advantage of it and do something that feels new.”
It's thought that Star Wars Jedi 2 could debut in some capacity during this year's Star Wars Celebration in May, while Respawn has another two Star Wars titles in the works for EA, including a first-person shooter headed up by Star Wars Battlefront and Medal of Honor veteran, Peter Hirschmann.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is currently playable on Xbox Series X|S, having received an upgrade last June.
