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.
Jedi: Fallen Order stars a brand new character named Cal Kestis, a former Jedi padawan in hiding after Order 66 killed most of the Jedis in the galaxy. The game is part of the official Star Wars canon and includes characters from other Star Wars media like the Second Sister.
IGN praised Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, particularly its strong cast and strong gameplay that combines a Metroidvania with engaging lightsaber combat. Respawn also released free Jedi: Fallen Order DLC as part of the May 4th celebration that added a new challenge mode, new game plus, and additional costumes.
