Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Breaks EA Sales Records

The newly-released Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has managed to break dozens of sales records for EA.

Less than two weeks after its release, game publisher EA has revealed that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which was developed by Respawn Entertainment, has beaten a record for the fastest-selling digital launch for a Star Wars video game.

According to EA, the video game also had the best PC launch for a Star Wars game, partially because EA had recently decided to release games on the Steam platform again.

The news was announced by Vince Zampella, the Head of Respawn, who said: “On behalf of Respawn and EA, we thank everyone for their support of the studio and the team throughout the development and launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

“Telling a story in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true and the reception from the fans has been incredible. With the launch of the game, the debut of The Mandalorian and the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan.”

Sean Shoptaw, the Senior Vice President of Games and Interactive Experiences, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, added: “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order demonstrates the amazing potential for original storytelling in Star Wars games.

“The close collaboration between Respawn and Lucasfilm is a perfect example of how we can deliver an experience for fans that is authentic to the stories and worlds they love, while also being an incredibly fun and innovative game. With the fantastic reception and launch so far, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has proven to be the must-play game this Holiday.”

A Star Wars Sequel?

The recent announcement has sparked speculation that we may eventually see a sequel for the video game as Fallen Order has surpassed EA’s expectations for the game, particularly after the poorly received Battlefront games.

EA signed a ten-year deal with Disney in 2013 to make video games based on the Star Wars brand. The agreement is expected to run through to March 2023 which gives EA and Respawn a few more years to create a sequel.

In an interview with GamesRadar, Charlie Houser, the Brand Strategy Director at Respawn, confirmed that the studio would enjoy developing a sequel to the game. He said:

“We’ve had an absolute blast. For a new team that’s come together at Respawn, it’s been a lot of learning to pull this off. Pending player reaction and feedback, and how everyone’s feeling about it, we would love to continue making awesome experiences and stories and keep telling that story in Star Wars.”

The video game has so far received positive reviews so it’s likely we may eventually see a sequel to the video game. Even if Respawn creates a sequel to the video game, it’ll be a few more years before we actually get official confirmation and news.
