Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2, the sequel to Respawn Entertainment’s 2019 action adventure game, might be announced as soon as May this year. This comes from VentureBeat journalist and insider Jeff Grubb, who believes that a reveal will take place on Star Wars celebration day.
Speaking on a recent podcast, Grubb stated that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 will “100%” be showcased on Star Wars celebration day this May, which takes place on 4 May. EA have yet to officially make any announcements about possible reveals coming on this day, though it seems likely at this point.
This also lines up with previous reports where Grubb claimed that the highly anticipated sequel would be announced sometime before E3. May is a month before June, when E3 usually takes place, so this makes sense.
Grubb added that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 might be released in early 2023, though didn’t rule out late 2022 as a possible launch window too.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order first released in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, receiving critical acclaim for its gameplay, exploration and strong storytelling. Developer Respawn Entertainment had been quietly working on more Star Wars properties since then, with one of them reportedly being a sequel to Fallen Order.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order would also receive PS5 and Xbox Series X/S updates in 2021 that enhanced the game for new generation consoles.
EA recently confirmed that they wouldn’t host their annual EA Play event this year, choosing to make video game announcements and updates throughout the year instead. In addition to Fallen Order 2, EA will likely provide updates on major upcoming games like the Dead Space remake and BioWare’s Dragon Age 4 throughout 2022.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 is reportedly in development and might be announced in May.
