And with a teaser trailer to boot. Sequel to the critically acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes place some five years after the events of Fallen Order and is being built from the ground up for next-gen hardware with a broad 2023 release window.
The trailer doesn't give us a lot, though it is a bit spoilerish if you haven't finished the first game (so hurry up and get on that). Here's some official info via press release as well:
Developed by the veteran team at Respawn under the leadership of game director Stig Asmussen, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will expand upon the iconic Star Wars stories, worlds, characters, and thrilling combat first experienced in the series’ debut title, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is being built for the current generation of gaming hardware to create a deeper and more expansive Star Wars experience for players worldwide when the game launches in 2023.
“Even before completing Jedi: Fallen Order, our team had a vision of how to carry the adventure for Cal, BD, and the crew into the sequel,” said Stig Asmussen, game director, Respawn. “For Jedi: Survivor, we are working in lockstep with Lucasfilm Games to build on the legacy of Jedi: Fallen Order. We’re leveraging advanced technology to create more dynamic Jedi combat and cinematic storytelling to expand on Cal’s story as he matures and survives during the dark times. We can’t wait to share more about the game with the world later this year.”
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor picks up five years after the events of Jedi: Fallen Order. Cal must stay one step ahead of the Empire’s constant pursuit as he begins to feel the weight of being one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy. Accompanied by his trusty companion BD-1, Cal will meet and ally himself with an array of unique and interesting characters on his journey. Jedi: Survivor will expand on the series’ dynamic combat in new and innovative ways. In order to survive, Cal must learn new skills and grow his connection with the Force.
The first game was filled to the brim with great Star Wars moments, characters and storytelling, but fell a bit short in a number of areas, such as combat, difficulty balance, AI and hopelessly poor platforming, which we hope are addressed in full in the sequel.

Interesting. I watched both Short Circuits with my kids a couple years ago and they were pretty into them. They would have been about 5 and 7 then. I quite enjoyed going back and watching it as an adult because the amount of dirty humour that comes out of Newton's colleague mouth throughout the movie is hilarious, just humour that went over my head when I was young. So I got something new out of going back to it.
Side note, I always thought that guy was Indian until looked him up on IMDB later in life and saw he was The Plague in Hackers amongst a bunch of other stuff I've seen him in.
