There has always been a lot of hype behind Star Wars games, but Respawn’s Jedi: Fallen Order was a little bit different as it is a single-player game. It is not like the previous Battlefront games, which had a very large focus on multiplayer action. EA, LucasArts, and Respawn Entertainment have announced that the game is the fastest-selling digital launch for a Star Wars game in its first two weeks. EA has also said that this is the fastest selling PC-game for the company (in all distribution formats) in these same two weeks.
“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!”
Vince Zampella, Head of Respawn
“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.”
