Lucasfilm is set to expand the Star Wars license to more developers in the coming years and that means we can expect more Star Wars games. So, here is a rundown of what you can expect from the property in gaming over the next few years.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
The new game that is set to arrive soonest is TT Games' LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
This collection of all nine films in the franchise will offer brand new features for the LEGO games and dramatically change how they play, including new cinematic camera angles and an open world-style player choice system allowing you to tackle any story in whatever order you want.
The game will have more than 300 characters and although it has just been delayed, it is expected to launch this year, likely with some news coming this Summer during E3.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS5/Xbox Series S/X)
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series S/X slightly before LEGO Star Wars releases.
Details are light right now, but it is expected to come sometime this Summer and make use of a number of next-gen features such as Xbox's surround sound and PS5's DualSense controller.
Knights of the Old Republic Remake
Multiple sources in the industry have reported that Aspyr Media (who are responsible for a number of classic Star Wars game ports on current consoles) are developing a remake of Knights of the Old Republic or combining both games and remaking them for new platforms.
These sources, including Jason Schreier from Bloomberg, say that the game is hoping to bring elements of the titles into Star Wars canon. The announcement and release are likely a few years away, however.
Ubisoft/Massive Entertainment's AAA RPG
Earlier this year, Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment confirmed that they are developing a AAA RPG set in the Star Wars universe.
Before Massive Entertainment move onto this project though, they will release an Avatar game, which is currently scheduled to come in 2022. Therefore, you shouldn't expect to see this Star Wars RPG until at least 2023, but likely a year or two later.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 hasn't been announced by EA, however, the first game was a huge critical and commercial success. Likely set to continue Cal Kestis' story, we will see the game expanded and enhanced.
Story and gameplay details are all speculation right now but hopefully, we will see Respawn add to Cal's arsenal and visit new locations. This is expected to be one of Respawn's next big games and is reportedly set to release in 2023.
A Mandalorian game is apparently in the works according to recent rumors, with Xbox invested in the project. Details are light right now but it seems likely that this would be the case, especially as the show has been hugely popular.
It isn't clear when it will release or who is even developing it, but we will likely hear more in the coming days and weeks.
Star Wars Battlefront 3
Star Wars Battlefront 3 isn't coming anytime in the near future. However, it is an inevitability. Although the second game launched into a whirlwind of controversy, both titles developed by EA have been huge successes.
We won't hear anything about the game for a while, so get excited about the other games on this list first.
What are your thoughts on this list of upcoming games and are you hoping for any specific projects to get announced in the coming months and years?
