If the wait for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has become too much to handle, Lucasfilm has announced that a new novel titled Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars will arrive on March 7, 2023, and it will tell a story set between the first game and the upcoming sequel.
As detailed by StarWars.com, Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars will be written by Sam Maggs and published by Del Rey and it “finds Order 66 survivor Cal Kestis leading the Mantis crew on an adventure set between the critically-acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the highly-anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.”
Maggs is no stranger to the world of video games, as she has worked on Anthem, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Call of Duty: Vanguard, and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. She was also part of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake that has been reportedly paused indefinitely, but she quit after around nine months.
If that isn’t enough for you, Dark Horse will be releasing The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on May 2, 2023. This behind-the-scenes look will “chronicle the development of the game, collecting concept art and creator commentary in an oversized, full-color hardcover.”
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor itself has no release date and Respawn is currently only saying that the sequel will arrive sometime in 2023. While these dates may indicate the game will be released between March and May, a game development timetable is constantly changing and anything can happen between now and then.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was officially announced at Star Wars Celebration 2022, and it showed Cal Kestis without his allies and possibly his lightsaber as it looks to have fallen into the hands of the Empire. It was also revealed that Survivor takes place five years after Fallen Order.
