Jeff Grubb announced Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is Respawn Entertainment’s next Star Wars-branded adventure title.
According to journalist Jeff Grubb, Star Wars: Jedi Survivor is the sequel to Respawn Entertainment’s highly anticipated Star Wars. Speculation about the next Star Wars Jedi game has been circulating for quite some time. A recent rumor, also courtesy of Grubb, suggests that Lucasfilm Games and publisher Electronic Arts intend to officially reveal the sequel in the coming weeks during the Star Wars celebrations on May 26. However, no company has yet corroborated this claim.
Jedi Fallen Order launched in late 2019 and quickly became a fan favorite Star Wars title. The massive success of the title caught Electronic Arts by surprise, forcing the company to rethink its stance on the importance of single-player adventures in its portfolio. It didn’t take long after that for the company’s chief executive Andrew Wilson to express an interest in further exploring the Star Wars Jedi franchise. For now, however, EA and Respawn have remained silent on how exactly the series will be expanded in its next launch.
On episode 46 of Giant Bomb’s premium GrubbSnax podcast (translated by VGC), VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb revealed the title of the upcoming sequel to Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. Allegedly, EA and Respawn Entertainment dropped the Fallen Order label in favor of Survivor; Therefore, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will mark the name of the completely new ride, if Grubb’s claim is correct. He didn’t give much else by providing specifics other than confirming that a member of the GrubbSnax chat had guessed the title correctly.
In the past, Jeff Grubb and Star Wars insiders like Bespin Bulletin have alleged that Fallen Order 2 will not serve as the title of a sequel developed by Respawn. Survivor seems like a wise choice for an alternative, a choice that could hint at an upcoming installment that could take on a slightly darker tone. That more and more won’t be clear until the game receives an official reveal, which could, of course, come as early as this month’s Star Wars celebration.
Grubb also reported earlier this year that the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel would launch exclusively on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S platforms, leaving last-gen consoles in the dust. Obviously, such a move would stem from Electronic Arts’ intention to release the project in 2023. This also constitutes a detail that has not been corroborated by official sources regarding the title in question. .
