Halo Infinite senior multiplayer designer has departed 343 Industries and joined Respawn Entertainment, where he says he's working on a new Star Wars game.

"I am happy to announce that today is my first day on the Jedi team as a Senior Encounter Designer @Respawn," Wren tweeted Monday. "I am so excited to be back on Star Wars and work with this incredible team."

Wren joined 343 Industries in 2013 and worked on both Halo 5: Guardians and Halo Infinite. Prior to that, he spent time at LucasArts working on Star Wars: First Assault, a first-person shooter set in the Star Wars universe that never saw the light of day — it was cancelled when Disney bought the Star Wars brand from George Lucas.

Wren stopped short of naming his new Star Wars project, but odds are he's referring to a sequel to 2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. He's wearing a Fallen Order t-shirt in a photo included in his tweet, and EA has all but confirmed plans for a sequel. The first game sold more than 10 million copies, but EA likely won't announce anything about it before 2022.

"All of us look forward to celebrating with you next year when we share our vision for the Galaxy far, far away!" the company said in July.
