A third Star Wars Jedi game is seemingly in development, according a statement by Cameron Monaghan, the voice actor for series protagonist Cal Kestis.
As first reported by VGC, Monaghan broke the news during a panel at Ocala Comic Con. “We’re working on a third [Star Wars Jedi game] and we’re in the process of doing that right now,” he stated. “That’s a big undertaking and there have been some conversations so far, but hopefully when all things are said and done we’ll be able to go in and make something really cool.” This tracks with series director Stig Asmussen’s comments in an IGN interview earlier this year, stating that he “always wanted to see this as a trilogy“.
Notably, this announcement was made not long after Asmussen, who had directed both Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and its more recent sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, left developer Respawn. “After careful thought and consideration, Stig Asmussen has decided to leave Respawn to pursue other adventures, and we wish him the best of luck.” an EA spokesperson told Bloomberg in a statement. “Veteran Respawn leaders will be stepping up to guide the team as they continue their work on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.”
It is unclear what the implications for the future of the series will be without Asmussen’s direction. However, considering the success of the series so far, it is likely that plans for a third game will remain on track at the company under different leadership.
With Star Wars Jedi: Survivor only having released earlier this year, a third entry in the series is likely many years away at least. At any rate, the Star Wars games developed by Respawn have been some of the best Star Wars games ever, so it is good that this developer will get to finish its trilogy. We will hopefully learn of more news before long as the development progresses.
