Star Wars Jedi: Survivor delayed for development quality

Respawn Entertainment and EA have announced that Star Wars: Jedi Survivor has been delayed. It will no longer release March 17 as originally planned, but instead will release a little over a month later in April.

The company made the announcement yesterday on Twitter, indicating that the game needs about six more weeks of development time in order to hit the bar of quality that both the studio requires and fans demand.

Listed as one of our most anticipated games coming out before this Summer, the game will still be releasing in that time frame with the April 28 release date. During the Game Awards in December, the gameplay trailer revealed that the man in the bacta tank was voiced by none other than American Horror Story’s Cody Fern. Jedi Survivor takes place five years after the event of the first game and nine full years before A New Hope. Although we have not seen him in trailers yet, Darth Vader is set to be the main villain of the title based both on the timeline and the events of the first game.

Newly added to Jedi Survivor will see Cal Kestis able to fly on mounts, new Jedi abilities and deploy attacks utilizing up to six different stances similar to Ghost of Tsushima style of play. Respawn tried to soften the blow by stating:

“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.”

Jedi Survivor will launch on PS5, Series S/X and PC now on April 28. Do you have your copy pre-ordered? Let us know below.
