EA Calls Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order “First Title in an Entirely New Franchise”
Electronic Arts boss Andrew Wilson heavily hinted to the possibility of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order evolving into its own franchise.
Today, during Electronic Arts’ quarterly financial conference call for analysts and investors, chief executive officer Andrew Wilson had an interesting remark to make about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Speaking of the game achieving over 10 million players as announced earlier today, Wilson mentioned that this is “a first title in an entirely new franchise.”
This most certainly seems to hint that Electronic Arts intends to continue the “Star Wars Jedi” series as its own franchise.
At the moment there are no hints to what a probable Star Wars Jedi 2 could be about, but hopefully, we hear more about it soon.
We recently heard that the publisher will host its EA Play event digitally in June this year. “World premieres” have been promised, and that could certainly be a perfect chance to announce a new game within Respawn’s successful take on the Star Wars IP.
Incidentally, just yesterday Electronic Arts and Respawn celebrated Star Wars Day by launching a free update adding a New Game + option and new content to the original Jedi: Fallen Order.
