Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson in a recent earnings call said he “would love to see” another entry in developer Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series, although he didn’t have any official announcements to make at this time.
When asked during the Q&A portion of EA’s first quarter earnings call how the publisher would approach the Star Wars franchise in the future in regards to live services and “ongoing engagement,” Wilson said EA didn’t have anything to announce at this time. However, Wilson said EA has a great partnership with Disney and Lucasfilm and has found incredible success with games like Star Wars Battlefront, the popular Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes mobile game, and the Star Wars Jedi series.
“Our teams are always thinking about what are new experiences that we might be able to create,” Wilson said. “Certainly, I would love to see more in the Jedi franchise over time. It’s just an extraordinary game that tells an extraordinary story. And again, we might be a little biased, but our sense based on the feedback we’ve been getting from our community and the quality of that product, it’s one of the great beats in the Star Wars galaxy this year and will likely continue to be a very meaningful part of that galaxy for many years to come.”
That lasting impact will be helped by the announcement during the earnings call that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While no release date was given, Wilson said the development team was “committed” to bringing the experience to last-gen consoles.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor released to positive reviews earlier this year, with the PlayStation 5 version sporting an average score of 85 on Metacritic. Gamespot’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor review gave Respawn’s latest an 8/10, calling it a “superb Star Wars game that gets into the nitty-gritty of the struggle of what it takes for a Jedi Knight to begin the journey toward the rank of Master.”
Another big Star Wars game is on the horizon, but it’s not coming from EA. Ubisoft will release Star Wars Outlaws, an open-world take on the Star Wars universe set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, in 2024.
