Patrick Wren, the former Lead Multiplayer Designer on Halo Infinite, has joined Respawn Entertainment to work on its new Star Wars project.
Wren posted on Twitter that he is now serving as Senior Encounter Designer on Respawn’s new title, which is almost certainly Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2.
Respawn hasn’t officially announced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order yet, but speaking during an earnings call last May, EA said that the game was part of a franchise, so a sequel is pretty much guaranteed at this point.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One in November 2019, and was spruced up for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S back in June 2021. You can read our full verdict on the PS5 edition of the game here.
Set between the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a massive commercial success, and was second only to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) in terms of sales in the US in the 12-month period between November 2019 – 2020.
