The release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was immensely positive, despite a few hiccups with technical issues in some versions of the game. Reviews for Jedi Survivor were overall positive and there’s been a lot of good buzz behind the second game starring Jedi knight Cal Kestis. Luckily for Star Wars fans, a third game may be over the horizon to round off a trilogy. And while talk about a third game has been around for some time, confirmation about its production has come from a surprising source, Cal Kestis himself.
During a panel at Ocala Comic Con 2023, Cameron Monaghan (the actor who plays Cal Kestis) spoke about his work on the series, including much of the effort that goes into playing a character in the Star Wars universe. While talking about the recently released Jedi Survivor, Cameron went on to discuss the unannounced third entry of the series that many have speculated about for a while.
“We’re working on the third… We’re in the process of doing it right now. That’s a big undertaking and there have been some conversations so far. Hopefully, when all things are said and done we’ll be able to go in and make something really cool for you guys again.” After saying that, some fans in the audience expressed their excitement about another game following Cal Kestis.
As of now, there has been no official confirmation from EA or Respawn Entertainment about a third Star Wars Jedi game. But it has been mentioned a few times by the director of both Jedi Fallen Order and Jedi Survivor, Stig Asmussen. Before leaving Respawn to follow other ventures, Stig had expressed interest in making a trilogy of games. Speaking with IGN in 2022, Stig talked about where Cal Kestis’ story can go next. “I always wanted to see this as a trilogy… How can we take Cal and the crew to new places beyond what we were doing in the first game? We had a pretty decent idea of the 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. And there’s ideas of what we could do beyond that as well.”
Both Star Wars Jedi games take place in the aftermath years after the events that happened in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The games follow Cal Kestis and a group of characters he meets along his travels across the galaxy. While the first game, Jedi Fallen Order, introduced us to Cal and where the galaxy is at during the rise of the Empire, Jedi Survivor jumped forward in time to show us how things have progressed since then.
As of now, the placement of Jedi Survivor on the official Star Wars canon puts it right around the time when the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series takes place, years before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. With a third game in production, it will be interesting to see where the story takes Cal and his friends next, and how it will relate to the greater Star Wars canon.
