Respawn Entertainment has revealed that the developer is working on multiple projects based on the Star Wars IP, including a previously unannounced first-person shooter set within the epic science-fiction franchise.
One of the new games is the previously-rumored Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel, and this will be joined by the aforementioned FPS Star Wars game, as well as a new strategy title.
Peter Hirschmann is heading up the Star Wars FPS as Game Director at Respawn, while the strategy title is being developed at the newly-formed Bit Reactor, which includes Greg Foerstch, and will be published by Respawn.
Lucasfilm Games’ VP, Douglas Reilly, commented:
We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented developers at Respawn. 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.
Hirschmann added: “Working with Lucasfilm Games on a new FPS in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true for me, as this is a story I have always wanted to tell.”
There’s no date for the Star Wars FPS and Star Wars Strategy title yet, but those are presumably earlier in development than Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2. Respawn was known to be working on a single-player game that is built around ‘mobility and style,’ which sounds unrelated to the above.
