Developers postponed the release date for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor by over a month from its initial March release.
The sequel to Fallen Order, Survivor continues the story of Cal Kestis and the Mantis crew five years after the first story ended. The game had been scheduled to be released on March 17, but developer Respawn decided at the last minute to push back the release date by a few weeks to allow the team more time to polish the game.
Developers pushed back the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to April 28th
The Star Wars Jedi development team disclosed in a statement published on the official EA Star Wars account that the game’s “content is complete” but that it will take some more time before it will be ready to ship at a quality level considered acceptable.
The statement states, “for the team to hit the Respawn quality requirements, provide the team the time they need, and accomplish the level of polish our fans deserve, we have added six crucial weeks to our release date.” As a result, “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will now launch globally on April 28,” the statement reads.
The statement also addressed the specific activities that will fill the extra six weeks generated by this delay. “At this point, we are concentrating all of our efforts on the last stage, which entails the elimination of bugs to improve the game’s overall stability, performance, polish, and player experience.
“Jedi: Survivor is a response to the message we’ve received from our community. It delivers enormous places to explore, evolved combat and traversal, and continues Cal and BD’s story.”
EA released this announcement on January 31 amidst a storm of other news, including the imminent shutdown of Battlefield Mobile and Apex Legends Mobile. This suggests that more details may emerge in the coming days.
