Jedi: Fallen Order 2 Footage Reportedly Arriving at Star Wars Celebration
The sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order may be announced as a part of Star Wars Celebration 2022.
According to Bespin Bulletin, the upcoming game from Respawn Entertainment should finally be unveiled during the annual convention dedicated to everything Star Wars. This reveal will include actual footage of the game rather than a cinematic trailer, meaning gamers may get a hint as to new mechanics and features. Bespin Bulletin states that multiple sources confirmed the footage debut with some going on to say that publisher Electronic Arts is planning to release the game in late 2022.
While these reports may be exciting for fans of the original game, industry insider Jeff Grubb recently stated that the continuation of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Orderwill be shown at E3 2022. Bespin Bulletin explains that while the project may be announced at the gaming convention, gameplay footage may be reserved for Star Wars Celebration 2022. Since Lucasfilm and EA have a history of tying video game releases into the release of live-action Star Wars projects, it could be the game that Fallen Order 2 arrives in the same window as the third season of The Mandalorianwhich is rumored to drop in late 2022.
Beyond these reports, next to nothing is known about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Bespin Bulletin notes that the game may use a new different subtitle, abandoning Fallen Order for an as-yet-unspecified name. The project will likely also feature the return of the core cast of characters from the original title as well as a few members of the Star Wars universe that fans will recognize.
Released in 2019, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Orderis a third-person action-adventure game. Players take on the role of Cal Kestis, a Jedi who is in hiding following the rise of the Galactic Empire. After he's discovered, Cal joins forces with a ragtag group of heroes looking to study the forgotten ways of the force and strike back against the Dark Side that's quickly spreading across the stars. The game was widely acclaimed with both fans and critics alike praising its stunning visuals, compelling writing and engaging combat system.
Beyond Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's sequel, fans of the galaxy far, far away have plenty to be excited about in the coming years. Ubisoft is working on an open-world game set in the expansive Star Wars universe while Quantic Dream is developing Star Wars Eclipse, a game set in the era of the High Republic which is reportedly being hampered by myriad production issues.
