Those speculating as to which new characters could be playable in Jedi: Survivor may be excited to learn that the game takes place during the same year as Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi show. The original Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order takes place five years after Revenge of the Sith, and EA has confirmed that Jedi: Survivor takes place an additional five years after Jedi: Fallen Order. This places the upcoming game ten years after the events of Revenge of the Sith, which is the exact same amount of time that has elapsed between the film and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
It may be a stretch to assume that Obi-Wan himself will be a playable character in Jedi: Survivor, but it’s not unlikely for him to appear or at least be mentioned in the game. Jedi: Survivor has been teased as being darker than its predecessor, and this setting could allow for that kind of narrative, drawing players closer to Darth Vader’s story via Obi-Wan. Whether or not the famed character does show up, it’s clear that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will take place a full decade after Revenge of the Sith, during the same period as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
