Product pages for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor have started to go live and one of them may have leaked the release date for the highly anticipated sequel. The initial PlayStation Store page originally had Star Wars Jedi: Survivor listed for a release in March 2023.
When Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was first announced back in May, it was given a 2023 release window. It’s possible that this may have just been a placeholder by Sony or perhaps just an error.
Neither EA, Respawn nor Sony have commented on the leak and probably won’t until they have something more official to give us.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a sequel to Fallen Order, picking up five years after the events of the first game. A cinematic trailer for the game showed Cal Kestis on the run from the Empire and continuing to be hunted by deadly Inquisitors. So really, not much has changed over the years, except that Cal is now a skilled Jedi.
I’m not exactly sure what happened to the crew we spent time forming in the first game, but I’m sure the game will address that at some point. The only confirmed character to return right now is BD-1, Cal’s sidekick droid. Beyond that, EA simply confirmed that Cal will meet “an array of unique and interesting characters on his journey.”
Beyond the teaser, not much else has been revealed about the story. Although, there was one particular moment in the trailer that has sparked speculation about one of the characters.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been announced solely for next-gen consoles, meaning Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC. While a March 2023 release would certainly be welcomed, my initial thoughts were that EA would release it as a holiday blockbuster later in the year. As always, we’ll be sure to keep you updated if we learn anything official.
