Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment has started work on a brand new IP, according to a now-deleted job listing.
As spotted earlier this week by VGC, a listing on the studio's website made reference to a "brand-new IP", implying that whatever the team has up its sleeve is not a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order or the Titanfall 3 news I know we've all been hoping for. The specified job requires the successful candidate to work with a small team that Respawn is putting together internally to develop the property, implying that it's very early days for whatever it is.
This new project doesn't mean that Respawn doesn't have any other irons in the fire, of course. In addition to ongoing work on Apex Legends and Medal Of Honor: Above And Beyond, publisher EA has strongly hinted that the studio will be working on a sequel to 2019's single-player Star Wars game.
Both Respawn and EA previously spoke of Jedi: Fallen Order as the first in a franchise, and the end of the first game certainly suggests that Cal and the gang have a lot more galaxy to explore before they hand in their blasters and lightsabers. There's also the inescapable fact that money means everything to companies like EA, and Jedi: Fallen Order sold remarkably well.
If you weren't convinced enough by that, yet more Respawn job listings from late 2019 all but confirm the existence of a sequel. Respawn confirmed it was on the hunt for a Senior Character Artist, Level Designer, and Senior Software Engineer to come and work on the "Star Wars Team".
The listing for Software Engineer revealed that EA and Respawn are on the hunt for someone who wants to help "create an incredible Star Wars experience" and who is "invigorated" by coding "third person action/adventure games". Seeing as its been nearly two years and we haven't heard anything in terms of an expansion or story DLC for Jedi: Fallen Order, it's safe to assume these job listings were for a full sequel.
