The sequel to the acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is in development and, hopefully, will be discussed more at Celebration later this month. But though very little has been officially said about the sequel, rumors have begun trickling out. One such rumor came recently from video game reporter Jeff Grubb, who said that the title for the game will be Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
He also has reported that the game will release in February or March 2023, and that it will release only on next generation platforms.
It is vital to keep in mind that this is just a rumor, so treat it as such for now. It is extremely curious that, at least as of yet, there is no panel scheduled for Celebration about the game – or Lucasfilm Games in general, for that matter. The conspicuous absence leaves me wondering whether there will still be something that just hasn’t been revealed yet, but it would seem to be something that would be discussed, if this game is really going to be releasing early in 2023 – and considering how successful the first one was.
So we will have to wait and see what comes of all of this, and when Star Wars officially releases much of anything about it. Until then, all that we have to go on are these rumors – and, if they’re true, the game will be called Jedi: Survivor. It’s not surprising that they would keep the “Star Wars Jedi” name but then give a different title for each game (that’s to be expected), and Survivor is vague enough to not give too much away while still giving a framework within which to think about this. We technically don’t even know if the sequel will still follow Cal Kestis or not, though I have to assume it will. And during this period, Cal – just like all of the remaining Jedi – are survivors just trying to forge their place in the galaxy. There’s a lot of storytelling that could happen there.
