Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Sequel Planned, But Not Promised
Cal Kestis could end up starring in a trilogy of games.
Always three, there are. At least, that's the way it seems with Star Wars, and the Jedi game series starring Cal Kestis sounds to be no different.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor director Stig Asmussen expressed his desire to make the game franchise a trilogy while speaking with IGN. Jeff Grubb, of GameSpot sister site Giant Bomb, added on Twitter that "the assumption among the team I've heard is that, as long as Survivor does fine, they will begin working on another Jedi game."
Asmussen told IGN how he and his team at Respawn Entertainment plotted out Star Wars Jedi: Survivor with a sequel planned in their minds. "We had a pretty decent idea of timeframe where we wanted Survivor to take place, what the stakes were going to be, what the tone of the game was going to be, what Cal was going to be up against, and how the crew was going to factor into that," Asmussen said. "And there's ideas of what we could do beyond that as well."
One of the new additions to Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is mixing up lightsaber combat with blaster action. Obi-Wan Kenobi probably wouldn't be pleased, but Cal can use this long-range option in the sequel.
In January, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was delayed a bit over a month. That means the game will now launch April 28.
