Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 has been hotly anticipated since Respawn’s first entry blew players away, and we’ve got all the information you need to know right here.

Star Wars games used to be frequently released in the early 2000s, but have become somewhat of a rarity despite a new cinematic trilogy gracing screens. Respawn Entertainment and EA’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order surprised players with incredible performances and satisfying gameplay that even incorporated Souls-like elements!

Having received next-gen updates since November 2019, players are more than ready for their next adventure with Cal Kestis, and here’s the latest.

Does Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 have a release date yet?

The notion of a Fallen Order sequel has been anticipated by Star Wars fans across the world and a sequel to Jedi Fallen: Order is on the way, but it might not be as close as fans would hope for.

According to notable Star Wars leaker Bespin Bulletin, the next installment could coincide with the release of The Mandalorian season 3. Touted to release in “late 2022”, it would make sense to release Fallen Order 2 alongside one of their flagship shows.

However, the most recent insider information comes from VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb who said in a recent show from Giant Bomb: “Star Wars Jedi 2 is going to be new-gen only, where it’s PS5Xbox Series X and S, and then of course PC.”

“One of the reasons that they’re going to be able to do that is because it’s not coming out until 2023. This game is for sure now not coming out until 2023,” he finished.

So, if the information does turn out to be accurate, then we may have to wait some time yet to see the sequel.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Sequel Title

While an official name hasn’t yet been confirmed by EA, further reports from industry insider Jeff Grubb point to the sequel going by the title of: Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

Rather than keeping line and being referred to as Fallen Order 2, this title marks a slight divergence while maintaining the Star Wars Jedi branding.

If reports hold true and this is the final title for the upcoming sequel, we’re sure to have confirmation in the near future.

What platforms will Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 be on?

Going back to the information from Jeff Grubb, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 will reportedly only be released on next-gen platforms.

Despite the previous game dropping on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One respectively, the follow-up is rumored to be coming to PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Are there any Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 trailers?

We don’t have any trailers to showcase at this time, but industry insider Jeff Grubb has given fans their first hint as to when the big reveal could happen.

Speaking on the GamesBeat podcast, Grubb claimed that more information on Jedi: Fallen Order 2 will be shared at Star Wars Celebration, due to take place from May 26 – May 29, 2022.

This is yet to be confirmed by the developer, but it does seem like the perfect place to show gameplay from the next major Star Wars game.

What do we know about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 gameplay?

Gameplay footage of Fallen Order 2 has yet to be released, but according to Bespin Bulletin and gaming insider Jeff Grubb, we could see our first glimpses on May 4, 2022.

Known as an immensely important date for Star Wars fans, the date acts as wordplay for the iconic phrase “may the force be with you.” Grubb noted that the sequel will be revealed before E3 2022. As the future of E3 hangs in the air, Disney’s celebration of the franchise on May 4 could be an event day indeed.

Who is developing Fallen Order 2?

Respawn Entertainment, famously known for Titanfall and Apex Legends, helmed Fallen Order for EA. Taking inspirations from challenging action-adventure games like Dark Souls, the game blended challenging combat with platforming and light puzzles.

Job listings went live in October 2021, to work specifically on “the Star Wars team.” It would make sense for Respawn Entertainment to return to the franchise after the success of Fallen Order.

What is the plot?

The plot of Fallen Order 2 is unknown, but will probably see us continue our journey with Cal Kestis. Fallen Order was set five years after Revenge of The Sith, as the Empire’s rise had grown to immense heights following Darth Vader’s emergence.

With the Jedi Order in ruins after the demise of the Republic, Cal Kestis was targeted by the Galactic Empire over the course of Fallen Order.
