Star Wars fans rejoice! It appears that Respawn Entertainment is already busy at work on Star Wars Jedi 3 game. The revelation came during a panel at Ocala Comic Con, where Cal Kestis voice actor Cameron Monaghan spilled the beans for the first time.
Respawn Is Developing Star Wars Jedi 3
Monaghan explained that he is currently working on a third Star Wars Jedi game:
“We’re working on a third and we’re in the process of doing that right now… That’s a big undertaking and there have been some conversations so far, but hopefully when all things and said and done we’ll be able to go in and make something really cool.”
Notably, it’s unclear who is actually directing the game given that Stig Asmussen, the director of both Star Wars Jedi games, has since announced that he is leaving Respawn.
Asmussen was the first to have suggested another Jedi game might be on the horizon, though it was never actually confirmed officially until now.
“I always wanted to see this as a trilogy,” he explained to IGN at the time before going on to say:
“We had a pretty decent idea of timeframe where we wanted Survivor to take place, what the stakes were going to be, what the tone of the game was going to be, what Cal was going to be up against, and how the crew was going to factor into that. And there’s ideas of what we could do beyond that as well.”
Both Star Wars Jedi games received a positive critical reception. Presumably, they also performed well commercially if publisher EA is greenlighting a third game.
