‘Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order 2’ release date: EA seemingly hints at sequel’s announcement ahead of EA Play Live
The EA Play Live is just a few weeks away, and the video game publisher appears to be teasing an announcement related to “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.” The game is one of the latest “Star Wars” IPs EA released, but fans have been wondering if it is ever getting a sequel.
It appears that the latest clue on the existence of “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order 2” comes from no other than EA. The official EA Star Wars Twitter page shared a Game Informer article on Tuesday, making a case for the developers to revisit the franchise. While EA did not provide any specific announcement about a sequel, it appears to be agreeing with the article and reiterated its headline “Now is a great time to get back to Jedi: Fallen Order” in the post.
Game Informer’s Matt Miller, who admits to being a fan of the first game, recalls that the game launched with several issues. However, Miller notes that the next-gen upgrades should be reason enough for fans to give it another shot. EA released a free update last January that improved the framerate, gaming resolution, and overall performance of “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order” for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
On the other hand, EA’s Twitter post may just be a simple expression of agreement with the article to encourage fans to play “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order” again. However, it is also worth noting that a sequel has been in the rumor mill over the past few months.
“Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order 2” was one of the “secret games” mentioned in a Gamereactor UK report last May. Respawn is said to be leading the development, and the developer is aiming to release it by 2023. With that timeline, the sequel (if it does exist) could be announced at EA Play Live on July 22.
Some thought that a sequel could be unlikely after Disney-owned Lucasfilm Games announced it is partnering with Ubisoft Massive to develop a new open-world, story-driven title. EA immediately released a statement to clarify that this does not change its ongoing partnership with Lucasfilm Games, saying it is “creating more exciting experiences for players.”
