During EA's quarterly conference call with investors, the company revealed that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been a huge success for the company.
CEO Andrew Wilson and CFO Blake Jorgensen announced that Respawn's title has "significantly beat expectations" for the financial quarter, hitting the "high end" of the 6-8 million copies shipped projection the company initially forecast for the entire fiscal year. As a result, they've now upped that number to 10 million copies shipped by the end of the financial year, which concludes March 21.
While that's a huge win for both gaming fans and Respawn as a company, it's also a huge win for Star Wars in general. According to industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, Wilson and Jorgensen told investors that in response to Fallen Order's success, EA will diversify its Star Wars output to match the demand from fans, meaning more single-player Star Wars games alongside the live-service releases the company already has planned.
EA has committed to the narrative that nobody plays single-player games - and more egregiously, that nobody wants single-player games - and Fallen Order's success seems to have finally made the company reconsider their approach.
