EA CEO Andrew Wilson has dismissed recent rumors that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will release in March, saying it’s best not to assume anything.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been one of the biggest secrets in the gaming industry since the first game was released, and many insiders have been reporting on it even before its official announcement. One of the first rumors said that the game was expected to be released in late 2022, but at the last minute the game was pushed back to early 2023.
Rumors that Jedi: Survivor could release in early 2023 were recently confirmed by the PlayStation database, which lists a March release date for the game. Regardless, it looks like it’s best to wait until EA officially announces the date, as the company’s CEO Andrew Wilson appears to have dismissed these rumors during a shareholder call.
Analyst Doug Kreutz asked Wilson about a potential release date for Jedi: Survivor. Kreutz said, “I’m just wondering if — since you announced Star Wars, can we assume it’s not a Star Wars game, or should we assume nothing?”, referring to part of EA’s release date schedule for this fiscal year, in which mentioned “an unannounced game” prior to the release of Jedi: Survivor.
In response, Wilson said, “I think the advice is to assume nothing,” thus seemingly dismissing the idea that Jedi: Survivor would be released before the end of this fiscal year. It’s not too surprising given how little we’ve seen of the game so far, but it’s interesting to note given how many reports have hinted at its launch before March 2023.
From a “glass half full” perspective, it’s possible that Wilson is just giving a general warning about not setting a date before it’s announced. If Star Wars Jedi: Survivor really doesn’t release at the end of this fiscal year, that raises the more interesting question of which “unannounced gamewill indeed be released before the end of this fiscal year.
