According to Jeff Grubb, the next installment will be called Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
According to Jeff Grubb from Venture Beat, it seems like the next game from Respawn Entertainment in the Star Wars Jedi saga will be called Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. This highly anticipated title, supposed to release in 2023, still doesn’t have a confirmed title but Grubb, in the Giant Bomb podcast’s episode of Grubbsnax, revealed the information without providing any more details.
This is not the first time that Grubb provides information about the upcoming Star Wars Jedi 2. He did mention, as well, that the game should be released only on the current-gen consoles and on PC, which has yet to be confirmed by Respawn.
Of course, this information is still unconfirmed.
Why would it be called Survivor?
In the Star Wars story, there was an event called the Great Jedi Purge which occurred from 19 BBY to 3 BBY, right after the Clone War, also known as the war against the Jedi. It is in this period that the Jedi Order was destroyed by the Sith, using Anakin Skywalker’s betrayal when he became Darth Vador, and the Jedi were hunted by the Galactic Empire to near extinction.
While Darth Vador led the Siege of the Jedi Temple, killing everyone inside it, Darth Sidious initiated Order 66, with the latter causing the Clones’ biochips to brainwash them into betraying and slaughtering the remaining Jedi, ultimately leading to the Jedi Order being defeated and nearly destroyed.
It is in 14 BBY that the Inquisitorius discovered a Jedi, Padawan Cal Kestis, hidden on Bracca and thus began the story of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This “survivor” and all other young Force-sensitive beings called the “Children of the Force” were hunted down in an operation from the Inquisitors called Project Harvester. This led to the Age of the Empire and the Imperial Era.
A sequel was confirmed back in January with Respawn returning to develop the follow-up.
