The powerhouse that is Electronic Arts have recently released their latest financial earnings report, and there’s some juicy info to comb over in there, one of the most significant details was the fact that an old EA title would get an HD remake and it sure sounded a lot like a Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered. 

However one other thing to come out of the report was the confirmation by EA CEO, Andrew Wilson, that Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order is the start of a brand new franchise: “it’s a rare achievement for the first title in an entirely new franchise” Wilson said in an earnings call. So it looks like Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order 2 is officially happening.

It may not come as much of a surprise, as it was clear that Respawn was working on a sequel to Jedi Fallen Order back in February, but at least now it has been officially confirmed, especially after the game was revealed to have sold 10 million copies worldwide. That’s a pretty substantial number for an EA property that is wholly single-player.

Hopefully the success of Star Wars Fallen Order will spur some more single-player games from EA, and hopefully more within the Star Wars property. As Star Wars: Battlefront 2 has slowly come to a close, it would be good to see some more Star Wars game content coming out.

What do you think of the confirmation? Are you excited for a Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2? What are you hoping to see in the sequel? Let us know!

Well that's that for this one. Franchise with EA means sequel every second year with ever increasing MTX methods.

How can Mr Wilson describe a Star Wars franchise title as "the first title in an entirely new franchise"? Does the previous 40 years of the franchise not count? Is it because it's the first fully 3rd Person game under the EA/Disney license not to be cancelled?

But according to EA single player games were dead and we all didn't want to play single player games anymore. Now how will I spend all my hard-earned money on virtual meaningless crap?

Well, the first game had none and it reflected positively on everyone. I think there may be some sort of paid DLC or preorder bonus coming with the next game, but I doubt they'd push MTX methods that hard.

I know I'm pessimistic, but this is EA we're talking about. Their history tells us that it's very likely that's they'll put at the very least least cosmetic microtransactions (or sometimes not that micro at all) and much more.


I hope you're right though, it was quite refreshing to see no DLC and micro-transactions in such a game and I would like them to continue in that direction for the sequels/prequels/whatever.

I'm sure with this game, they didn't have any of that ****, because they have gotten so much grief for it already. It would make zero sense to turn around and do it again as though this time it will be different. However morons are in charge of a lot of stuff in this world...
