The highly-anticipated sequel to 2019 hit 'Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order' has officialy been announced, with a 2023 released date pencilled in.

The sequel was announced earlier this year, but the game finally broke cover at this year's Star Wars Celebration event.

'Survivor' comes to us from developers Respawn Entertainment, developers of the original game as well as the 'Titanfall' series.

“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 at 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.”

The sequel picks up five years after the events of the last game, and our hero 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.

'Fallen Order' was one of the final blockbuster titles for the 7th generation of consoles and became a critical and commercial success upon release in November 2019.

'Survivor' is one of a bevy of 'Star Wars' titles in the works, with the narrative-driven 'Star Wars: Eclipse' on the way from 'Heavy Rain' and 'Detroit: Become Human' developers Quantic Dream, and most intriguing of all, an 'XCOM' style strategy game set in the 'Star Wars' universe.

Players will be able to play the next chapter in Cal and BD-1 sometime in 2023, with a proper gameplay reveal later this year.
