Video game company Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm Games announced Tuesday, Jan. 25, that they will be joining forces once again for three new Star Wars titles.

According to the Star Wars blog, the upcoming games include a sequel to the action-adventure Star Wars Jedi franchise, a new strategy game, and a first-person shooter. 

All three games are currently in development from Respawn Entertainment, the gaming studio behind Titanfall, Apex Legends and 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order follows Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis, who becomes a target of the Galactic Empire and is hunted throughout the galaxy by two Inquisitors while attempting to complete his training, escape his troubled past, and rebuild the fallen Jedi Order.

The game developed by Respawn and published by EA received generally favorable reviews from critics and was a commercial success, selling more than ten million copies by 2020.

“We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented teams at Respawn,” said Douglas Reilly, VP, Lucasfilm Games. “They have demonstrated excellence in telling epic Star Wars stories along with best-in-class gameplay across different genres and we are looking forward to bringing more amazing experiences to the galaxy far, far away.”

These three new titles aren’t the only Star Wars games in development, as Lucasfilm Games embarks on a new era for Star Wars in their gaming universe. 

In Jan. 2021 Ubisoft announced that it is collaborating with Disney and Lucasfilm Games on a new “story-driven open-world video game set in the Star Wars galaxy” headed by Massive Entertainment, developer of The Divison

Quantic Dream, the French studio known for interactive storytelling games like 2010’s Heavy Rain and 2013’s Beyond: Two Souls, also revealed last December that Star Wars Eclipse, the newest adventure set in the new High Republic Era of Star Wars, is in early development.
