The state of Star Wars games was at an all-time low for EA, until they released the Soulslike Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Now fans are waiting on an update for the sequel, but it’s possible it won’t be coming to previous-gen consoles.
As per gaming journalist Jeff Grub (via Bespin Bulletin), the sequel to Fallen Order could be exclusive to new-gen consoles like the PS5, and Xbox Series X|S (and of course, PC). What this means is that the game might not be available for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
This rumor has been met with a lot of ire from the fanbase, especially considering how hard it is to acquire a PS5 for a good price. Then again, if the sequel could be too heavy for previous-gen consoles to run, then it could be best if they just keep it to the hardware that could handle the load. That was essentially the problem CD Projekt Red ran into when they decided to release Cyberpunk 2077 for the PS4 and Xbox One. Even the early days of Fallen Order were met with bugs and errors already; imagine the sequel.
For now, we have yet to get an official update on the next Star Wars Jedi game. While it has gotten praise for its complicated gameplay, I am hoping for some more variety when it comes to the sequel. Maybe Cal could get a blaster? How about some levels where we can take control of the Mantis?
No release date has been announced for the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel, but you can play the original game now for PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
