According to a job advertisement, Respawn Entertainment could be already working on Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order 2, and the title could be planned to release on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Respawn Entertainment is a US development studio currently maintaining several teams. While one of those teams is currently working on new content for the Battle Royal shooter Apex Legends, another team is taking care of the Star Wars brand.
As you all know, the Star Wars team developed the action-adventure Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, which was received very positively by both the critics and the players. The call for a successor was, therefore, anticipated by many fans. Even if the developers of Respawn Entertainment are interested in making a sequel, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order 2 has not been officially announced yet.
However, it has been speculated for quite a while that the sequel could already be in development behind closed doors. A recent job advertisement from Respawn Entertainment is causing fresh rumors, with which the studio is looking for new staff for the Star Wars team. More specifically, they are looking for a narrative game designer to work on a third-person action-adventure.
As can also be seen from the aforementioned job advertisement, interested applicants should have experience in the field of implementing “narrative-focused gameplay systems” and in dealing with the Unreal 4 from Epic Games. Responsibilities include exploring new ways to “bring characters to life with a practical approach that blends into, or seamlessly with, gameplay.”
Since an official announcement of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order 2 is still a long time coming, it is unclear whether the job posting does indeed refer to a sequel to the game. It would also be conceivable that Respawn Entertainment is working on a completely new project for the legendary Star Wars saga.
