A third Star Wars Jedi game has casually been confirmed by actor Cameron Monaghan, who plays Cal Kestis in Fallen Order and Survivor. The actor couldn’t elaborate on what Star Wars Jedi 3 will be about but added that it will be a “big undertaking.” Developer Respawn Entertainment will presumably lead the charge on the next game in the series, though without its lead director, Stig Asmussen, who recently left the company.
Speaking at the Ocala Comic Con event in Florida this month, Monaghan was featured on a panel where he accidentally let slip that a third Star Wars Jedi game was in development. “We’re working on the third. We are in the process of doing it right now,” said the actor. “Hopefully when all is said and done we’ll be able to go in and make something really cool for you guys.”
This follows the news of director Stig Asmussen leaving Respawn Entertainment and EA last week. Asmussen, who directed the previous two games, envisioned the series as a trilogy but it looks like the third game will move ahead without his involvement.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard of a third Star Wars Jedi game being in the works. Back in July, new job listings opened up at Respawn Entertainment that subtly hinted at a third game being in development. Monaghan has outright confirmed this now and it’s good to have confirmation directly from the talent involved.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the follow-up to 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, launched earlier this year and continued the story of Jedi outcast Cal Kestis as he evades the Empire following the events of Order 66, which saw every Jedi in the galaxy ruthlessly hunted down. Despite some problematic technical and performance issues, the sequel was a critical success and received pretty good reviews (read our review here).
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. PS4 and Xbox One versions are also on their way.
