Trilogies are probably the format Star Wars is known best for and that seems to go for movies as well as video games. EA and Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi saga seems to be headed for a third entry as well, as job adverts from EA spotted by VGC seem to confirm.

The company is hiring a principal game writer, senior VFX artist, and audio engineer to work on the series. Both of the technical roles stress that experience in Unreal Engine 5 is beneficial for the candidates, perhaps indicating that the third Star Wars Jedi game will make a jump into the newer engine from Unreal Engine 4, on which it ran up to this point.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor are third-person adventure games in which players control Cal Kestis, a young padawan hiding from the Empire and later joining the fight against it. They were positively received by critics as well as the audience, though Survivor made negative impressions with its disastrous technical performance at release. Despite a late launch and more time to polish the game, it was nearly unplayable on PC and continues to be a bit of a buggy mess even after several patches have been released.

Star Wars Jedi 3 has not been officially announced just yet, but with these job openings it’s safe to say that more content in the series is coming.

This isn’t the only Star Wars game in development at the moment – EA alone has two more titles in the oven: a first-person shooter made by Respawn with one of the creators of the original Star Wars: Battlefront at the helm as well as a strategy game developed by a studio consisting of former Firaxis Games employees.

There are still a lot of open jobs on the shooter project, so it’s a bit unclear how far along that title’s production is.
