The Jedi Fallen Order Sequel is Supposed to Be Revealed before E3
Many hailed 2019’s Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order as a breakthrough in Star Wars games, which had been largely focused on multiplayer and bad for many years. Respawn’s Titanfall developer Respawn had an original story about Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis, who regained his force powers to rescue the Empire’s force-sensitive children. Although the game was cancelled, it set up for a sequel if desired. EA executives had already been excitedly revealing that Fallen Order’ssequel was almost a certainty within months.
According to VentureBeat/Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb, it appears that we might see the sequel this year. Grubb claims that it could even be seen before E3.
Grubb shared his Giant Bomb show GrubbSnax, in which he stated that “I expect to hear more about the game before E3.” However, Grubb seemed more comfortable stating it was right before the now-likely digital June industry event. Grubb continued to speculate that the title might be released in 2022, but 2023 seems more likely.
The likely reveal target is May 4, the marketing-decided Star Wars Day. This date sounds like “May the Force,” the second-third of the iconic phrase from the series. Star Wars day has historically been a good spot to announce a new Jedi Fallen Order.
Some speculate about the sequel since the last game saw Cal at the edge of his capabilities against an impossible enemy. The first Fallen Order occurred between the prequels and the original trilogy. There is plenty of time on the timeline for Respawn and Lucasfilm to change protagonists or move them around.
