Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order only for next-gen?
It's been almost three years since the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The action adventure game has won praise from critics and Star Wars fans alike. This is quite an achievement, because the expectations of ardent fans of the brand are not easy to meet. Unfortunately, the information provided by Jeff Grubb during his podcast may, to put it mildly, upset many gamers.
The market is still struggling with the availability of the latest consoles, which can only fuel discontent among owners of older models of PlayStation and Xbox.
Still, this is unofficial information. Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertaiment have not referred to these revelations in any way. We must therefore refrain from making judgments and wait for the official announcement of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2, which is expected in May of this year.
At the end it is worth mentioning that the first part Fallen Order was released in November 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In the meantime, the game also lived to see a release on 9th-gen consoles, making use of the extra processing power.
