Electronic Arts, Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm have just announced Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The game will release in 2023 for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
Cal Kestis will return as the main character and the game is being developed by the same team at Respawn under the direction of game director Stig Asmussen.
You can watch the teaser trailer below.
Here’s how Electronic Arts officially describes Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes place five years after the events of Jedi: Fallen Order. Cal must stay one step ahead of the Empire’s constant pursuit as he begins to feel the weight of being one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy. Accompanied by his faithful companion BD-1, Cal will meet and team up with many unique and interesting characters on his journey. Jedi: Survivor will expand the series’ fast-paced combat in new and innovative ways. To survive, Cal must learn new skills and strengthen his connection to the Force.
We also get a comment from Asmussen himself:
Even before the completion of Jedi: Fallen Order, our team had a vision of how to bring the adventure of Cal, BD, and the team into the sequel. For Jedi: Survivor, we’re working closely with Lucasfilm Games to build on the legacy of Jedi: Fallen Order. We’re using cutting-edge technology to create more dynamic Jedi combat and cinematic storytelling to expand Cal’s story as he matures and survives the dark times. We can’t wait to tell the world more about the game later this year.
Finally, Lucasfilm Games Vice President Douglas Reilly also commented on the announcement.
Millions of Star Wars fans have been fascinated by Cal Kestis’ story and we’re thrilled to be working with the ace developers at Respawn to continue this epic story. We’re thrilled to bring Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and the next chapter of Cal Kestis’ journey with players around the world.
