Respawn's success with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen order has earned the gaming industry an unprecedented invitation to get creative with reimagining Disney's IP, and it seems that EA are going for it sooner rather than later.
Knowing just how protective Disney is of their intellectual property, quite rightfully so in today's climate, this is a huge compliment to Respawn and the gaming industry itself. The license to " get creative " with some of their iconic franchises indeed say a lot.
Granted, Insomniac Studios' Spider-Man played a big role in Disney's decision, as it too raked in some serious dough to all three parties involved. If you wanted to be nitpicky, the fact that it was a PS4 exclusive makes its feat even more impressive but back to the matter at hand.
As reported by DualShockers, a new Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is already in the pipeline, although we're most likely talking about the drawing-board stage thereof.
Respawn's game made such a splash that it almost entirely washed away the bitterness of Battlefront 2's monetary aspirations. This time, however, Respawn helped them achieve both, while proving wrong their claims of single-player games being a thing of the past.
The same report claims that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2, or whatever it ends up being called, isn't the only Star Wars-based game in EA's current production though. In fact, the report claims it's a "smaller, more unusual project" that will be handled by Motive Studios.
While we're certainly delighted that Disney are enjoying Respawn's work - let's face it, who doesn't - it's a bit ironic that a gaming company produces more original, creative and engaging content based on Disney's own IP.
