EA games and Respawn have announced a delay in the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, extending the wait for Cal Kestis’ return as a Jedi. The game’s original March 17th release date has been pushed back to April 28th, 2023.
The game, according to Respawn, is content complete, and the delay is to guarantee that the final phases of bug fixes, stability, and polish receive the time and attention they deserve. The developer wishes to live up to the enormous expectations set by the Star Wars franchise and its fans.
“Our team has poured their souls into producing Jedi: Survivor, giving an exciting continuation of Cal and BD’s journey, as well as new destinations, updated combat, and traversal,” the statement says. “We’ve added six critical weeks to our release timetable in order to meet the quality bar we’ve set for ourselves and deliver the polished experience our fans expect.”
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, originally announced in May 2022 and revealed at The Game Awards the same year, is a widely anticipated sequel to Cal Kestis’ debut game. The six-week delay may be disappointing for fans eager to go on the Jedi’s adventure in March, but the extra time will allow Respawn to improve the game.
On April 28th, 2023, the Force will be with you as Cal and his companion droid travel through a galaxy with far fewer Jedi than before. The extra time in the bacta tank could result in a Jedi adventure that surpasses all expectations.
