Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be released in March 2023, according to Steam
New details, pre-order bonuses and special edition leaked ahead of Game Awards reveal
The Star Wars Jedi: Survivor release date will fall in March 2023.
That’s according to the game’s Steam page, which has seemingly been updated ahead of an official announcement.
The Steam page, which listed March 15 and March 16 release dates depending on when it was viewed on Monday, also includes new Star Wars Jedi: Survivor story details, plus information on pre-order bonuses and a Deluxe Edition of the game.
The game’s Steam page has reverted to its previous version, meaning it’s no longer listing the release date or new details (pictured below), suggesting they were published ahead of schedule.
EA has confirmed plans to show off the first Star Wars Jedi: Survivor gameplay at The Game Awards on December 8 and released new artwork for the title, which is viewable below.

The game description on Steam reads: “The story of Cal Kestis continues in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a third-person, galaxy-spanning, action-adventure game from Respawn Entertainment, developed in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games. This narratively driven, single-player title picks up 5 years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and follows Cal’s increasingly desperate fight as the galaxy descends further into darkness.
“Pushed to the edges of the galaxy by the Empire, Cal will find himself surrounded by threats new and familiar. As one of the last surviving Jedi Knights, Cal is driven to make a stand during the galaxy’s darkest times – but how far is he willing to go to protect himself, his crew, and the legacy of the Jedi Order?”
It also lists the following features:
- Continue Cal’s journey. No longer a Padawan, Cal has come into his own and grown into a powerful Jedi Knight. Carrying the memories and expectations of the Jedi Order with him, his crusade against the Empire has only become more perilous. The Dark Times are closing in, and with enemies new and familiar surrounding him, Cal will need to decide how far he’s willing to go to save those closest to him.
- Go beyond your training. The cinematic combat system returns with additional Force abilities and new lightsaber fighting styles. Creatively leverage all these abilities and weapons to strategically take on an expanded host of enemies, sizing up strengths and weaknesses while cleverly utilizing your training to overcome your opponents and solve the mysteries that lay in your path.
- Explore an untamed galaxy. Discover new planets and familiar frontiers in the Star Wars galaxy, each with unique biomes, challenges, and enemies. Master new skills, equipment, and abilities that will augment the ways you explore, fight, and roam. With larger areas to explore and more to discover off the beaten path, players who adventure beyond the horizon will find hidden rewards.
Following months of speculation, Electronic Arts officially announced Star Wars Jedi: Survivor in May with a teaser trailer and a 2023 launch window.
Giant Bomb reporter Jeff Grubb later claimed that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor would be released in March 2023. If accurate, it’s possible the release date could officially be confirmed during The Game Awards on Thursday.
Set for release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC, the game is the sequel to developer Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The third person, narrative-driven action-adventure title picks up five years after the events of the hit 2019 release.
Accompanied by his trusty sidekick BD-1, protagonist Cal Kestis, one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy, must acquire new skills and grow his connection with the Force to stay one step ahead of the Empire’s constant pursuit.
Fallen Order game director Stig Asmussen, who was God of War 3 creative director at Sony Santa Monica before joining Respawn, is again leading development of the sequel.
Asmussen has said Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will have a darker plot than its predecessor.
“They are in dark times, and Cal and the crew are doing whatever it takes to stay alive,” he told the Star Wars website when the game was announced. “That might mean that they are making connections with people that, in other times, might be considered unsavoury.”
