May 27th isn't the day fans of Star Wars usually associate with the popular sci-fi franchise but that may have just changed with two massive pieces of Star Wars excitement dropping on the same day. The debut of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney Plus and Titanfall and Apex Legends developers Respawn have announced their latest single-player title in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
The sequel to 2019's Fallen Order, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor once again will follow Cal Kestis in the years following Episode III: Revenge of the Sith as a Jedi on the run from The Empire's various Inquisitors that hunt down any and all remaining Jedi. Here's what we know about the title so far.
Respawn Announces Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
The surprise announcement came via Respawn's official Twitter featuring a cinematic teaser trailer giving some cryptic clues as to what the game could involve and a vague release date of 2023.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes place a full five years after the conclusion of Fallen Order and ten years into the Empire's control over the Star Wars Galaxy.
The trailer hints at protagonist Cal Kestis losing his lightsaber to an inquisitor in a lightsaber duel, with the weapon then being delivered to a Pau'an on a planet resembling that of coruscant. The trailer also teases a figure in some kind of bacta stasis tank and while it is unclear who that might be, it's easy to assume that they will be an important aspect of the game's narrative once it arrives next year.
