EA CEO Andrew Wilson has confirmed that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be the start of a new franchise, suggesting more games, including Jedi: Fallen Order 2, are being planned.
During an earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the “first title in an entirely new franchise.” This is the first official confirmation that Jedi: Fallen Order isn’t a one-off adventure.
This isn’t too surprising considering the success Jedi: Fallen Order experienced critically and financially since its release. During an investor call last year, CFO Blake Jorgensen said that Jedi: Fallen Order “significantly beat our expectations” and was expected to sell 10 million units.
Respawn has also put up job listings in recent months specifically looking to fill senior positions on the Star Wars team, a hint that Respawn was working on more Star Wars content. Given this, it’s not too surprising that EA is pursuing potential sequels for such a successful title.
