If you’ve been following Star Wars video game news lately, then you know that the Jedi Fallen Order sequel is well and truly in development and it’s not more than a matter of days before it is revealed in broad daylight. In the meantime, theories, rumors and other leaks have been flooding the web for a few weeks and it’s time to take stock. What to believe? What can we expect from this highly anticipated sequel to the adventures of Cal Kestis ?
Star Wars Jedi Survivor: The real name of Fallen Order 2?
Renowned for his information revealed in advance, Jeff Grubb is at the origin of this leak. The journalist talked about it in his latest Grubbsnax video episode on Giant Bomb. He did not explain the reasons for this choice but we have known for some time that Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment were not going to call it Jedi Fallen Order 2. For a few minutes, he then left his chat (thread live) guessed the title and simply confirmed when Internet users have found the answer: Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
Grubb added that the game would be only planned for next-gen consoles (Xbox Series and PS5) as well as on computer. Nothing is obviously confirmed for the moment but the title does indeed seem plausible when we know that Cal is a Jedi survivor. On the release date side, the reporter said that he would not release not before 2023.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2: When will we have info and what is the link with Obi Wan Kenobi?
If several summer conferences like the Summer Game festival arrive, we must in truth rather dwell on the famous annual Star Wars celebration taking place May 26-29, 2022. This also coincides with the release of the highly anticipated Obi Wan Kenobi series on Disney+. For the occasion, two episodes at once will be released on May 27 and we can very well imagine the reveal of Fallen Order 2 this week as well.
Be that as it may, for the past few days the fans have been in turmoil: Ewan McGregor himself affirmed, during a interview for the series, that he loved the work of Deborah Chow, the screenwriter. Why ? Above all for his love and knowledge of the franchise, but also for his ability to link video game events to the history of Star Wars and the series. “A fact in a video game must not match the film.”
In short, a sentence that obviously tickled internet users. Even without such remarks, we can strongly imagine the appearance of Cal Kestis in the Obi Wan Kenobi series and vice versa since the timeline is almost the same: we find ourselves a few years after theOrder 66where the Jedi must take refuge and try to survive against the Inquisitors.
It’s official, a new video game in the Star Wars universe is currently in the works at Lucasfilm Games in collaboration with one of the most respected directors in the video game industry.
