As suspected, the press release for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor confirmed that the Fallen Order sequel will not launch on PS4 and Xbox One.
The press release for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor confirmed the Fallen Order sequel will not release across PS4 and Xbox One consoles. Following a lengthy period of rumors and leaks, Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment officially announced Star Wars Jedi: Survivor late last week during Star Wars Celebration. A roughly 90-second teaser trailer accompanied the news, offering a mere glimpse at the next challenge awaiting protagonist Cal Kestis and his adorable droid companion, BD-1.
Though rumors about the project have swirled since early 2020, they especially began picking up steam several months ago. Everything from the sequel’s title to its release window made the rounds online in the weeks and months leading up to the Star Wars Celebration reveal. And much of the speculation has already proven accurate. In episode 46 of GiantBomb’s GrubbSnax podcast, for instance, VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb outed Survivor as Star Wars Jedi 2’s subtitle. Around the same time, another report hinted at the new adventure launching exclusively on PC and current-gen consoles.

Notably, Electronic Arts’ official press release for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has confirmed that the 2023 title will not launch across PS4 and Xbox One platforms. A brief blurb from the release in question reads as follows, “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be available in 2023 and is being developed for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.” At present, there exists no word on whether or not Respawn Entertainment built Survivor from the ground up with only PC and current-gen hardware in mind.
Given its 2023 release window, it should not come as too much of a surprise that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor won’t see the light of day on last-gen consoles. Some Fallen Order fans may take umbrage with the news, though, especially since the PS5 and Xbox Series remain difficult to secure nearly two years after their initial release in stores around the globe.
Despite the recent announcement, much about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor remains under lock and key. And the teaser trailer raised even more questions with respect to the series’ next chapter. For one, fan theories concerning the mystery character in the Bacta Tank still inundate the web. Such theories will undoubtedly grow even more elaborate as Star Wars faithful continue to pick apart the 90-second trailer, too. Hopefully, Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment won’t keep the public waiting for additional information about Cal Kestis’ eagerly-anticipated new adventure.
