Electronic Arts has officially confirmed that Respawn Entertainment is now working on three new titles in the Star Wars series. Players can expect one strategy game and one first-person shooter set in the famous universe.
Respawn Entertainment founder Vince Zampella, who recently also became an overall head of the Battlefield franchise, will oversee all the upcoming projects.
The first game in the lineup will be a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, with Stig Asmussen serving as game director.
The next title is a strategy game, which is being developed in collaboration with the newly founded studio Bit Reactor. Greg Foertsch, known as art director of XCOM 2 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown, will lead the project.
Finally, Respawn is now also working on an untitled FPS. The studio’s game director Peter Hirschmann, who worked on many Star Wars titles during his years at LucasArts, will lead the development.
“Working with Lucasfilm Games on a new FPS in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true for me, as this is a story I have always wanted to tell,” Hirschmann said.
Neither of these three games has a release window as Respawn is now hiring new people for the teams. The Jedi: Fallen Order sequel is probably the closest to launch among all of them. According to Jason Schreier, the game is expected to come out in 2022 or 2023.
