It's finally official! The long-awaited sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been revealed as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, and it'll be coming to Xbox Series X and Series S (along with PS5 and PC) in 2023.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will see the return of Cal Kestis from Fallen Order, taking place five years after the events of the first game, and EA promises it "will expand upon the iconic Star Wars stories, worlds, characters, and thrilling combat first experienced in the series’ debut title". The game is once again being developed by Respawn Entertainment, under the leadership of game director Stig Asmussen.
Here's what Asmussen had to say about today's announcement:
“Even before completing Jedi: Fallen Order, our team had a vision of how to carry the adventure for Cal, BD, and the crew into the sequel. For Jedi: Survivor, we are working in lockstep with Lucasfilm Games to build on the legacy of Jedi: Fallen Order.
We’re leveraging advanced technology to create more dynamic Jedi combat and cinematic storytelling to expand on Cal’s story as he matures and survives during the dark times. We can’t wait to share more about the game with the world later this year.”
The reason Jedi: Survivor is only coming to Xbox Series X and Series S (rather than Xbox One as well) is due to EA and Respawn's desire to "create a deeper and more expansive Star Wars experience for players worldwide".
You can check out a few more details from the press release below, along with the teaser trailer above.
"Accompanied by his trusty companion BD-1, Cal will meet and ally himself with an array of unique and interesting characters on his journey. Jedi: Survivor will expand on the series’ dynamic combat in new and innovative ways. In order to survive, Cal must learn new skills and grow his connection with the Force."
