In what is undoubtedly the best year yet for developer Respawn Entertainment, after the humongous success of Apex Legends, STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order has reached over 6 million players worldwide boosted by EA's subscription service offerings - the PC based Origin Access in particular - and a surprising Steam launch.

PC leads the pack with ~2.5M players, around 300K of which are via Steam. 59% of the Steam players of the game already had an Origin account that they connected to, while the rest used a guest account.

On PlayStation, the game sold ~1.9M, an impressive but not record-breaking result for a modern AAA game. The less popular XBOX platform managed to get close with ~1.5M players.

While we can't obtain exact numbers, STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order had an abnormally high overlap with other games included in EA's subscription services - implying this was a popular way to play the game. Due to these subscription services and the used-game market, all figures are players instead of precise sales.

Geographically, the game followed the same pattern of popularity as the STAR WARS franchise itself. It performed impressively in the United States, but was slightly underrepresented in Europe with the exception of Iceland where it measured a surprising amount of success.

A sequel to the game looks likely to happen. Publisher EA has expressed satisfaction with the sales performance of STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order, and have recently acquired developer of the game Respawn Entertainment who have in turn expressed their desire to continue the story and have been hiring for what looks to be a sequel to the game.
