Future action-adventure game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is being created by Respawn Entertainment and will be distributed by Electronic Arts. Release dates have been set for March 17, 2023, for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S. It is the sequel to Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order (2019).
May the Force Be With You: ‘Jedi Survivor’ Release Date Announced
Star Wars: Jedi Survivor’s release date is March 17, 2023. Journalist Jeff Grubb’s assertions that he had covered the game, including the title before it was officially released gave validity to the theory that March 2023 is the intended release date.
This was announced in December during the Game Awards, where a new teaser showed off even more of the game and revealed its scheduled release date.
Due to the pandemic’s likely impact on the development schedule, the game may not be ready in time. Not that this would be the first game to be delayed past its original release window.
STAR WAR Platform Survival Mission
The launch platforms for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the Xbox One X, Xbox One S, PlayStation 5, and personal computers. Respawn Entertainment has decided to build this game exclusively for current-gen consoles so they can push the graphical fidelity higher, therefore players who are still playing on older devices like the Xbox One and PS4 will have to update to continue Cal’s journey (and presumably reduce the number of platforms they need to work across).
As long as we fight, hope survives.

The Last Jedi Standing: A Story of Survival
According to details given by Respawn Entertainment alongside the game’s formal announcement, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes place five years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Cal, still feeling the burden of being one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy, must stay one step ahead of the Empire’s relentless pursuit.
Cal Kestis’s fight with Darth Vader at the end of the first game is one of the game’s most iconic moments. After narrowly escaping the confrontation with his life, Cal must make the ultimate decision: use the Holocron data to rebuild the Jedi Order by revealing the locations of force-sensitive children across the galaxy, or destroy it to prevent any more children from being sacrificed to the whims of the Empire or forced to become inquisitors.
The second game can take several different paths based on the first events. Having been knighted by Cere, Cal must now investigate his force potential to rein in his Dark Side visions and impulses. Cere, who has recently allowed the Force back into her consciousness, must decide whether to join the fight against the Empire as one of the last remaining Jedi or to live in hiding.
Based on the two teasers, we can assume that Cal and his group are on the run. After evading Vader, they set out to see what else the galaxy offers while constantly looking over their shoulders. One of Cal’s lightsabers is shown in the hands of what looks to be a Pau’an in the first teaser trailer.
Since we subsequently see Cal fighting an unknown figure with a red saber, and he only uses one blade, this could hint that in the sequel, Cal will only use one edge for most of the game. The trailer’s biggest enigma is the white-skinned man or woman that Cal discovers in a Bacta tank.
The man in question has long white hair and doesn’t seem connected to any significant legacy characters; they are likely original creations for this story. Does the name of the game allude to the actual “Survivor”?
Since it has never been determined how many Jedi were spared during the purge of Order 66, the canon is free to introduce new Jedi at any point; this might be somebody who fights alongside Cal or someone who has turned to the dark side and is Cal’s opponent in the teaser.

Star Wars: Will the Jedi Outlast Darth Vader’s Return?
You can bet that the formidable Sith Lord will send his entire army after the crew now that he knows Cere and Cal survived. The trailer gives us a fleeting sight of a shadowy figure carrying a red lightsaber. It’s unclear whether this individual is an inquisitor or another Sith Lord.
While the Rule of Two might indicate that this is not a Sith Lord, we will find out for sure very soon. In addition, the identity of the individual in the Bacta tank remains a mystery.
Amigo or foe? So far, there has been no indication that Darth Vader will appear in Jedi Survivor; however, his appearance in the first game, Jedi: Fallen Order, was similarly concealed until after launch, with only a brief teaser of his trademark breath sound appearing in the video. After what he did to us last time, I think it’s best if Cal stays away from him.
