It’s probably one of the best Star Wars games ever made and it’s getting a sequel that will be exclusively for Next-Gen Systems.
“Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order,” a single-player game title from EA that is strong in story, gameplay and looks is getting its part 2 but will likely only be released for next-generation systems (including PC).
Star Wars Jedi Rumour
VentureBeat reporter Jeff Grubb reportedly made the claim as part of his Grubbsnax podcast on Giant Bomb (via VGC), saying the game will be only for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC – not for prior generations (ie. PS4, Xbox One).
Jeff Grubb the reliable video-game leaker from VentureBeat made the claim on the Grubbsnax Podcast: “One of the reasons that they’re going to be able to do that is because it’s not coming out until 2023. This game is for sure now not coming out until 2023.”
My Thoughts On That
That makes a lot of sense. I’ve been saying since the consoles releases that we haven’t really seen a game that is exclusive to the next-gen consoles yet. Each game that has been released so far has been either available on last-gen consoles or has at least hasn’t really shown the true power of the systems. Also the fact that the consoles have been hard to come by has probably slowed development on those titles so they can get them out to as many systems as possible.
Other Next-Gen Exclusive Titles
There are a few other major studios that have said that from 2023 their games will be only made for PS5 or Xbox Series X/S and PC. Games like the sequels “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2,” “Alan Wake II,” and the upcoming DC title that received a major postponement “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League”.
The Star Wars Future in Gaming
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 was officially announced by EA in January although it’s likely that they will drop the “Fallen Order” part of the title.
There are a couple of other major “Star Wars” projects in development at Respawn Entertainment. So 2023 could be a big year for games set in a Galaxy Far Far Away.
