Fans of the Star Wars Jedi series have been eagerly awaiting news about a potential third entry in the series since the release of the sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order earlier this year. Recent developments suggest that their wait might soon be over.
A job posting on LinkedIn indicates that Respawn Entertainment, the developer behind the series, is currently seeking a “Principal Game Writer” to help create an “incredible Star Wars experience” in a third-person action-adventure setting. This news aligns with previous statements from the director of the previous game, Stig Asmussen, who expressed his desire to see the series become a trilogy in an interview with IGN.
Asmussen stated, “I always wanted to see this as a trilogy. How can we take Cal and the crew to new places beyond what we were doing in the first game?” Given the ending of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, fans were confident that the series wasn’t over yet. However, they are hoping that the next installment will be released in a more stable state than Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was at launch.
One player responded to the news saying, “Can’t wait! Hoping the next installment isn’t so buggy but can’t wait to finish Cal’s story. I’m in that weird gaming funk after completing Survivor where nothing else is scratching the itch.”
In addition to the potential third installment of the Star Wars Jedi series, fans of the franchise have more to look forward to. Other games, such as Star Wars Outlaws, are also currently in development. Star Wars Outlaws is expected to feature an “ever-present” Grand Theft Auto-like wanted system and gameplay that gives off Uncharted vibes, but without a lightsaber in sight.
As we await further details on these exciting developments, it’s clear that the Star Wars universe continues to expand and evolve, offering fans new and exciting ways to engage with their favorite galaxy far, far away.
