May the 4th came and went without any news on Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2, despite earlier speculation that it would appear for the annual celebration.
While we don’t have any gameplay footage or story details surrounding the hotly-anticipated sequel, we may have a title. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. That’s according to Venturebeat reporter, Jeff Grubb, who confirmed the name for Fallen Order 2 after a Giant Bomb community member correctly guessed it during a stream.
Previously, Grubb has teased info surrounding the Star Wars sequel. Still in development at Titanfall and Apex Legends studio, Respawn Entertainment, Survivor isn’t due until 2023 and will only launch on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, skipping both PS4 and Xbox One.
2022 is already proving a great year for Star Wars games with the long-awaited arrival of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Looking further ahead, there are numerous confirmed and unannounced projects in the pipeline including rumoured first person shooter and real-time strategy titles from EA. With the publisher having ended its exclusivity deal early with Disney, even more games based on the popular film franchise have emerged in past year or so, one of them coming from Ubisoft and The Division developer, Massive Entertainment.
If you’re looking for something a little more story-focused, Star Wars Eclipse was announced last year by Quantic Dream, the team behind hits such as Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human. Meanwhile, RPG fans are hyped to hear more from the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake, which has so far been confirmed for PS5 and PC.
When it launched back in 2019, Fallen Order was a surprise hit that proved Respawn isn’t a one-trick pony:
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is exactly the kind of single player game we had originally hoped to see when EA and Disney joined forces. Even if you strip away the license, you’re left with a super satisfying mix or combat, story, and exploration, deftly crafted by a studio best known for spearheading an entirely different genre.
Hopefully, with a rumoured release for 2023, we’re not too far away from catching a first glimpse of Fallen Order 2.
