The Star Wars Jedi Legacy
2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order won over millions of gamers worldwide, earning high praise from critics and fans alike. Its sequel, Jedi: Survivor, launched earlier this year to similar acclaim and commercial success. Both games have been lauded as significant upgrades to EA's previous Star Wars titles, which included multiplayer shooters and several canceled projects.
End of an Era
In a surprising turn of events, Asmussen, the visionary who spearheaded the development of the Jedi games, has parted ways with both Respawn and its parent company EA. This development was confirmed in a recent report from Bloomberg.
EA Responds to Asmussen's Departure
EA addressed Asmussen's exit with the following statement: "After careful thought and consideration, Stig Asmussen has decided to leave Respawn to pursue other adventures, and we wish him the best of luck. Veteran Respawn leaders will be stepping up to guide the team as they continue their work on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor."
Looking to the Future
Asmussen's departure comes as a surprise considering the success of the Jedi games under EA's stewardship of Star Wars. The shock is amplified by the fact that Asmussen had previously hinted at a trilogy for the Jedi series, suggesting a third installment might be on the horizon.
Asmussen's Vision for the Jedi Saga
Just before the launch of Jedi: Survivor, Asmussen shared with IGN his vision of the Jedi saga as a trilogy and hinted at possible developments beyond Jedi: Survivor. Now, while it seems plausible that EA and Respawn will develop a third installment to complete the trilogy, it will be sans the director who brought the first two chapters to life.
