Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will come out in 2023, and it’s already one of the most exciting Star Wars games in the next few years. Respawn Entertainment is making a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It will pick up five years after Padawan Cal Kestis survived the Imperial Inquisition. But if the trailer shown at Star Wars Celebration 2022 indicates Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be a much darker story than before.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is one of the best action games we’ve played recently, so we’re excited to hear that Fallen Order 2 is coming out soon. Respawn has already said that BD-1 will be back, but it’s unclear what will happen to the Stinger Mantis crew. We hope to learn more about the game soon, but in the meantime, you can keep scrolling to find out everything we know about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Release Date And Platform
The game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will come out in 2023. Jedi: Survivor hasn’t been given a more specific release date yet by Respawn or LucasFilm Games, but it seems to follow the same path as its predecessor. EA announced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at the 2018 Star Wars Celebration, which came out in November 2019. Since the same people who made Apex Legend have been hard at work on Jedi: Survivor for three years, it seems likely that the sequel will come out in the fall of 2023.
Stig Asmussen, the game’s director, says that next-generation features like real-time ray tracing let Respawn work “at a level of fidelity that’s well above anything we’ve ever made.” The drop support for PS4 and Xbox One will also allow Respawn to reduce load screens and times and invest in DualSense haptic feedback support for PS5.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Trailer
The news about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor came as a surprise at Star Wars Celebration in 2022. The first trailer shows that the story will be darker, and Cal Kestis looks a lot older after being chased by the Empire for years. The trailer confirms that BD-1 will be along for the ride. It also hints that the lightsaber we spent so much time making in Jedi: Fallen Order will be lost to the Inquisitors and that the Stinger Mantis ship will be taken out of service.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Story
The story of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will start five years after Jedi: Fallen Order ends. In that book, Cal Kestis gave up his chance to rebuild the Jedi Order to protect Force-sensitive children from the Empire. Respawn says that Jedi: Survivor will have a darker tone because Cal, one of the last Jedi left in the galaxy, must do “whatever it takes to stay alive.” Game director Stig Asmussen hints that this could mean “making connections with people who, in other times, might be considered unsavory,” which is another sign of how bad things are for Cal and his friends.
Whom Did Cal Kestis look like?
Cal Kestis was made to look like Cameron Monaghan, who did the voice for him. Monaghan made his acting debut in The Wishing Stone in 2002. Since then, he has been in many movies and TV shows, but he is probably best known for his roles as Ian Gallagher in Shameless and twin brothers Jerome and Jeremiah Valeska in Gotham. They are the inspiration for The Joker.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Setting
Respawn may have had a good reason for making Cal Kestis look like actor Cameron Monaghan. The events of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will take place at a key time in the Star Wars timeline, at the same time as the Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ shows. There have been rumors for weeks that Monaghan’s Kestis will show up in Obi-Wan. These rumors were made even stronger when Ewan McGregor said that his Disney+ show needs to “match up” with the story and events from the video games. Given how vital The Inquisitors are in the Star Wars Jedi games and how Obi-Wan meets up with surviving Jedi in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, it seems likely that there will be some crossover.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Gameplay
Respawn hasn’t shown gameplay footage of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to the public yet, but the studio has talked about how it will handle combat and how the game will progress. Stig Asmussen, who is in charge of the game, confirms that Respawn is “using the advanced technology” of the PS5 and Xbox Series X to “make Jedi combat more dynamic.” The fact that “Jedi: Survivor will add to the dynamic fighting style of the series in new and interesting ways. Cal needs to learn new skills and get closer to the Force to stay alive.”
Asmussen hinted to the official Star Wars we=bsite that Respawn was thinking about Fallen Order 2 while making the first game. Ultimately, they decided to save things like new combat stances for a sequel. It also sounds like Respawn will return to the Metroidvania style for its world and level designs, as the studio is trying to “expand them and make them more vibrant than they’ve been in the past.”
