After more than three years since the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for PC and consoles in 2019, Star Wars fans and gamers alike are eagerly anticipating the sequel, which is scheduled for release in 2023.
Initially confirmed to be in the middle of production during the Star Wars Celebration in May, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is now gearing up to appear at the 2022 Game Awards. (Opens in a new tab). In a tweet on Monday, publisher EA announced plans to get a first look at the sequel’s gameplay during Friday’s event in exciting news for fans eagerly awaiting Fallen Order 2019.
And just a short while later, a leaked listing appeared on Steam suggesting we could end up seeing the latest Jedi adventure much sooner than expected – with the spin-off listing appearing to confirm a March release date.
Pre-order details and a synopsis have also been leaked along with the listing, teasing new power-ups, new planets, and larger areas to explore.
The yet-unconfirmed synopsis offered an ominous warning about the threat of “approaching dark times,” which could put protagonist Cal Kestis on a collision course with the more powerful Sith and the appearance of the Emperor himself in the sequel.
Naturally, since the spin-off listing was noticed, the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor landing page on Steam has been erased, suggesting that the Survivor release date is simply “close.”
Star Wars fans were pleasantly surprised by the release of 2019’s Fallen Order, as developers Respawn Entertainment found a winning formula that combined elements of Soulsborne, Metroidvania and RPG gameplay. Set in the familiar Star Wars universe but offering entirely new sights, sounds, and experiences for Jedi fans to sink their teeth into, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order finally laid the perfect foundation for an exciting new series that fans hope will continue strongly with the next series. My grandfather: the survivor.
And if the reported leaked Jedi: Survivor release date turns out to be accurate, fans won’t have to wait long to see if the sequel lives up to their expectations.
Sadly, the new entry has already only been confirmed as a next-gen title, which means players still relying on a PS4 or Xbox One will have to pull the trigger on upgrading before its release date to get their hands on it.
