EA may have lost exclusive dibs on the Star Wars license, but it’s not backing away from the juggernaut film franchise at all. As part of a press release today, it’s confirmed that Respawn Entertainment is working on three different licensed titles inspired by the Lucasfilm franchise. This will include a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is already in production under ex-God of War 3 director Stig Asmussen.
The two other titles include a first-person shooter fronted by Peter Hirschmann, and a strategy game made in collaboration with new team Bit Reactor. In the case of the latter title, Respawn Entertainment will produce it, while the development heavy lifting will be handled by Bit Reactor. All three projects will be designed under the watchful eye of Call of Duty veteran Vince Zampella, who founded Respawn Entertainment.
“We are huge fans of Star Wars here at Respawn Entertainment and we’re thrilled to work with Lucasfilm Games on new titles that we have wanted to make for years,” said Zampella. “If you want to make great Star Wars games, you should come join us on our journey.”
This trio will be complemented by a bunch of other Star Wars projects, including the PS5 console exclusive Knights of the Old Republic remake, Quantic Dream’s Star Wars Eclipse, and The Division developer Massive Entertainment’s adaptation for Ubisoft. Good news for fans of galaxies far, far away, then.
