The sequel to the highly anticipated Jedi: Fallen Order from 2019, Respawn Entertainment's first venture into 3rd person action, has finally released its first details. Let's summarize what we know so far.
With the release of Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn Entertainment, well-known for its first-person shooters Apex Legends and Titanfall, took the gaming world by surprise. So, naturally, a sequel was inevitable: Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, rather than Fallen Order 2, is the name of the sequel, continuing the "Jedi" style of games after the first release.
Fallen Order is one of the greatest Star Wars action games and games released in recent years, rekindling our interest in Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy many years ago. Here's where the sequel might go in and wreak havoc on fans. We may already know a bit more about the release date though.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Release Date
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor's release date has so far been set for 2023, and nothing further information has been released yet. It's possible that the game will be released in March 2023, according to leakers and insiders.
- Leak at Sony: The game showed up in a PlayStation database entry, which had the March 2023 date in it.
- Releases of related books: A prequel book called Star Wars Battle Scars has been announced with a release date on March 7, 2023. The official artbook for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is set for a release on May 2. Fans have understandably concluded, that the game has to come out around the same time as the books that are related to it.
- Reports by reliable insider: The leaker and reporter Jeff Grubb, who has a great reputation in the industry, stoked the fires by supporting the speculation surrounding the Jedi: Survivor tie-in books. He claimed, that the game will come out in the same month as the novel Battle Scars a which would be in March.
Even if it sounds reasonable and believable, this is still speculation. Nothing will be confirmed and certain until EA and Respawn release the date. We will update you as soon as we know the release date.
How Cal Kestis' And The Jedi's Story Continues
In case you haven't played Survivor yet, it's likely to be a direct sequel to Fallen Order, set five years after the first games. The first "Jedi" game took place five years after "Revenge of the Sith," mostly centered around a handful of new characters to the Star Wars universe: Cal Kestis, a young Padawan persecuted by a group of Sith trained by Darth Vader.
The sequel will be set many years after the events of Fallen Order. Cal and his friends are still being hunted by the empire and are on the run. Many specifics haven't been revealed yet, as EA only provided a brief description.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has had only a minor teaser trailer, which shows off a significantly darker atmosphere than in the previous game. This is the game's mood setting, and it's a pretty terrible one. Let's see if this will influence the final game's mood.
The teaser is only CG and is the only thing we have seen so far from the game. Gameplay has not been shown yet, so we don't know how Jedi: Survivor will play. Considering the solid foundations that were built with Fallen Order, we don't expect the developers to go too far from the core gameplay loop of the first game. However, we will have to wait and see.
Will Jedi: Survivor Be Next-Gen Only?
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be released for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, and the game will be next-gen exclusive. This is a shame for anyone who haven't upgraded yet. Forspoken or Tekken 8 are just beginning to make the switch.
So far, nothing has been revealed about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. We'll keep you updated as soon as we've learned more about it.
