VentureBeat reporter Jeff Grubb made the claim during his premium Giant Bomb show Grubbsnax (transcribed by VGC).
Grubb teased that he was aware of the title of the sequel, and after a member of the chat guessed the subtitle “Survivor”, Grubb replied: “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor… you got it. You nailed it. Well done.”
“That’s the name.” Grubb didn’t elaborate beyond this.

“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.”
EA officially announced a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in January, along with two other new Star Wars projects in development at Fallen Order development studio Respawn Entertainment.
According to Grubb, EA and Respawn had previously been targeting a 2022 release, but this now won’t happen.
Along with Star Wars Jedi 2, EA confirmed in January that Respawn is working on a new Star Wars first-person shooter game being helmed by former LucasArts veteran and Medal of Honor co-creator Peter Hirschmann.
Hirschmann has previously worked on the original Star Wars Battlefront games, The Force Unleashed and more, and most recently directed 2020 VR title Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond.
