Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been delayed
The Respawn sequel will now release six weeks later than planned, EA confirms
Electronic Arts has delayed the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor by just over a month to April 28.
In a statement published on Tuesday, developer Respawn Entertainment said the delay was in order to “achieve the level of polish our fans deserve”.
Jedi: Survivor was originally due to be released on March 17.
“For the last three years, the Jedi team here at Respawn has poured its collective heart and soul into Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, and we are proud to say the next chapter in the tale of Cal Kestis is content complete,” it wrote.

“We are now focused entirely on the final stage: bug fixes to enhance performance, stability, polish, and most importantly, the player experience.
“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 this 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.”
It added: “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.
“Thanks to EA and Respawn for giving us the time to deliver the best experience for our players, and to all of you for your understanding.”
Survivor picks up five years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and continues the story Cal Kestis, one of the last surviving Jedi Knights.
Fallen Order game director Stig Asmussen, who was God of War 3 creative director at Sony Santa Monica before joining Respawn, is again leading development of the sequel.
