The rumors were right: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is getting a sequel. Over the course of the last few months, reputable leakers claimed that a follow-up to Respawn's 2019 game was in development, and would be revealed soon, with EA even stating that they were working on three separate Star Wars games currently at Respawn. Finally, officially announced at this year's Star Wars Celebration event was Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, out sometime next year. The game will take place five years after the first one, and will once more feature Cal Kestis as the protagonist. A full press release also features an interview with the director of the series, asking questions related to the upcoming game.
StarWars.com: Respawn just released a teaser for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor at Star Wars Celebration. I know there’s not much you can say, but something that struck me about it is the mood of the piece. It’s mysterious and menacing, and I’m wondering if you’d say that’s a reflection of what might be in store.
Stig Asmussen: Yeah, you nailed it. Right there, that’s the purpose in the tone of it, is to leave the player with a lot of questions but they’re very intrigued. The game is all about survival. That’s why it’s called Jedi: Survivor. They are in dark times, and Cal and the crew are doing whatever it takes to stay alive. That might mean that they are making connections with people that, in other times, might be considered unsavory. Some of that is portrayed in the trailer, and again, I don’t want to give anything away, but there’s definitely a sense of… I don’t want to spoil anything, sorry! [Laughs.]
