That’s also a major reason why ditching older consoles might be more palatable to publisher EA, since more and more PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles are finding their way into homes every day.
According to a seasoned industry leaker, the next sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order may forgo old-generation consoles in favour of modern gear and PC-only play. PlayStation titles to look forward to in the near future. We know the game is coming because EA announced it in January 2022, but we don’t have a release date for it yet, and analyst Jeff Grubb predicts it won’t be out until 2023.
Speaking on his own show and as reported by VGC, Grubb said that the game would target new-gen consoles and PC, and therefore be able to set the bar quite a lot higher graphically. That’s interesting given that the first game launched with a few perfomance issues on Xbox One and PS4.
Either way, given the positive reception the first game got, it’ll likely be one that people pay attention to when its developer, Respawn Entertainment, is ready to properly unveil it.
Grubb made a few other interesting claims, including that the game will be dropping the “Fallen Order” part of its title, although we don’t know whether it’ll replace them with something else or just go for Star Wars Jedi 2 (which sounds a little generic to our ears).
