EA Planning At Least One More Star Wars Game After 'Jedi:Fallen Order'
EA hasn't exactly filled us with confidence when it comes to its ability to publish Star Wars games. So far we've had two online shooters, one of which suffered from an appalling launch, and a cancelled open world title.
The one potential bright spot on the horizon right now is Respawn Entertainment's upcoming single-player Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
The action-adventure title comes to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15, and based on what we've seen (and played) of it so far, it seems like a real course-correction for the publisher after relentless criticism over the way its handled the Star Wars license up until this point.
But what about once Fallen Order launches? What next for EA's line of Star Wars video games? This, we don't know - although a recent report seems to suggest that we can expect at least one more game set in a galaxy far, far away before April 2022 at the latest.
Daniel Ahmad, senior analyst at Niko Partners and trusted industry insider (who recently seemed to confirm some very interesting Diablo 4 news) revealed on Twitter that another Star Wars title is being developed by one of EA's internal studios and "should drop" before the end of fiscal year 2022, which runs from April 2021 to March 2022.
Ahmad later added that his information was given in an "offhand" manner, meaning we probably shouldn't put too much stock in the time-frames specified. Still, this is at least a sign that EA is working on another Star Wars game, even if we don't know exactly when to expect it.
EA says that new Dragon Age from Bioware is in development but likely won't be until after FY22. So after April 2022.

In addition to a new Battlefield game, we know that DICE is also working on another currently-unannounced project. Knowing EA, there's every chance this could end up being Star Wars Battlefront III, meaning those hoping for another single-player Star Wars adventure might well be in for a long wait once they're done with Fallen Order.
There's also every chance that EA could have multiple Star Wars projects in development that they're just not ready to talk about yet, of course. With no indication of EA losing the Star Wars license any time soon, we'll just have to stick it out and see what the publisher has in store for us.
