During an interview on the official Star Wars website, Asmussen teased that Cal and his crew are going through “dark times” which is why the sequel is called “Survivor”.

When asked if the sequel will be “mysterious and menacing,” Asmussen replied: “Yeah, you nailed it.” Adding: “Right there, that’s the purpose in the tone of it, is to leave the player with a lot of questions but they’re very intrigued.

Dark times are ahead for Cal

The game is all about survival. That’s why it’s called Jedi: Survivor,” continued Asmussen. “They are in dark times, and Cal and the crew are doing whatever it takes to stay alive.
