Even though the Star Wars Celebration isn’t for another couple of weeks, speculation about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the game that appears to be a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, continues to circulate. Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat was the one who first reported the name earlier today, and he had previously disclosed that the launch date would be in 2023. Since then, he has mentioned in a recent tweet that the launch will take place in either February or March of the following year.
The sequel will apparently not be released on any consoles from the generation before it, instead choosing to focus solely on the current generation (along with PC). Stig Asmussen will be returning to his post as game director, as was confirmed earlier this year by both Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm Games when they announced that the sequel is currently in the process of being developed. There is still more information that has not been formally confirmed; this includes the new name.
EA is currently working on a total of two new Star Wars video games. The first is a first-person shooter, and its director, Peter Hirschmann, is a veteran of the team that developed the first Star Wars Battlefront games. The second game is a strategy game that was developed by the recently established company Bit Reactor and is being directed by Greg Foerscth (former art director on XCOM: Enemy Unknown and XCOM 2).
The Star Wars Celebration takes place from the 26th to the 29th of May, so make sure you stay up to date on any official announcements.
Jedi Survivor is February or March.
