Jedi: Survivor is also set 5 years after the events of the first game, Jedi: Fallen Order. The first game to feature the young Jedi was set 5 years after Order 66 and the conclusion of Episode III.

That means that Cal Kestis has now been fighting against the Empire for half a decade. And while his hope is to rebuild the Jedi Order, the Empire’s power has only grown in that time.

When Is Jedi: Survivor Set Compared to the Films?

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is set in 9 BBY, one year after the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story. It is set in the same year as the Obi-Wan Kenobi show.

The game therefore takes place after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith but before Episode IV: A New Hope, bridging the gap between the prequel and original trilogies.
