These days, it feels like everyone has become cynical about Star Wars. Even those who enjoyed some of the more recent Star Wars films feel that Disney handled the new trilogy poorly. And the series has indirectly led to countless internet fights and controversies that became very tiresome very quickly. However, series aficionados at least seem to agree that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the 2019 Metroidvania-esque action game made by Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, turned out surprisingly well. And fortunately enough for those who enjoyed the game, it seems that Respawn may announce a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sometime this year.
As of right now, Respawn has not officially confirmed that an announcement will come. Word of this potential sequel came courtesy of reporter Jeff Grubb, who spoke about it on the most recent episode of his GrubbSnax news show. In this episode, Grubb claimed that Respawn could officially reveal this sequel sometime in May, or at the very least before E3 2022 comes around in June. He also suggested that although this new game could see a release this year, it will most likely come out during early 2023.
A warranted sequel
According to GameSpot, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order stands tall as one of the best-selling Star Wars games ever made at over 10 million copies sold. It’s an impressive feat considering we live in a world where financial juggernauts like Star Wars Battlefront and the Lego Star Wars series exist. The game also managed to gain a fairly positive reception from critics, earning an 81 Metascore on Metacritic.
If this sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order turns out to be real, then fans of the original game will likely welcome it with open arms whenever it gets announced. Ultimately, though, we will have to wait until later in the year to see if Grubb’s predictions end up being true.
