EA and Respawn Entertainment have delayed Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to April.
The game, a sequel to 2018’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, was planned to release on March 17th, 2023, but has been delayed by six weeks to April 28th to allow developer Respawn Entertainment to focus on bug fixes to improve game performance, stability, and “most importantly, the player experience”.
The delay was announced on the EA Star Wars Twitter account, where Respawn Entertainment confirmed that the development team has “poured its collective heart and soul into Star Wars Jedi: Survivor“.
They continued: “Jedi: Survivor is a direct response to the feedback from our community, delivering expansive destinations to explore, evolved combat and traversal, and, of course, the continuation of Cal and BD’s story. Making the game has truly made us a better team, and we have pushed ourselves at every level to make this the Star Wars sequel our fans expect from Respawn and Lucasfilm Games.
“In order for the team to hit the Respawn quality bar, provide the team the time they need, and achieve the level of polish our fans deserve, we have added six crucial weeks to our release schedule – Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will now launch globally on April 28th.”
The development team thanked fans for their support and for giving the team “time to deliver the best experience”.
Last month, Jedi: Survivor game director Stig Asmussen unveiled details about the new gameplay mechanics that will be available in the game, including fighting stances, new traversal options, and a buddy AI system.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will release on April 28th, 2022, for PC and PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles.
