Next gen Star Wars fans may be in luck if they want a native next gen release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, as a leak has appeared on the German games rating board USK indicating a re-release for both Sony’s and Microsoft’s new consoles.
In fact, there was an update back in January which improved the optimisation on the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5, but the board has new listings for the next gen consoles.
The new listings suggest that a re-release may be coming for the Xbox Series X/S and the PS5, as the game is currently backwards compatible on these consoles.
However, it should be noted that the listing for the Xbox doesn’t actually specify a console, but it can be assumed that it is referring to the Series X/S, as there is already a listing for the Xbox One. The listing also shows that, as is expected, the age ratings will not be changing.
The listings do not detail when these next gen versions will be released, only that they were added to the site on March 2.
Re-releasing the game has been speculated about by fans due to the game’s success and for it to be able to utilise the capabilities of both the Xbox Series X/S and the PS5.
EA have yet to comment on the listing or on any details relating to a next gen native release.
There has also been ongoing speculation surrounding a sequel to the 2019 game. Although we do not know when this we will be, EA CEO Andrew Wilson did confirm last year in an earnings call that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the “first title in an entirely new franchise.”
Elsewhere in gaming, Sony have announced that Horizon Zero Dawn, as well as 9 indie and VR games, will be offered for free as part of the Play At Home program.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 through backwards compatibility.
