If you're a gamer, then we're sure you don't need us to tell you that it's the norm for huge AAA titles to be delayed. It doesn't always happen, but when it does, the news is more often than not met with disappointment from fans instead of surprise.
That makes this Star Wars Jedi: Survivor update no less frustrating, though, as developer Respawn Entertainment has confirmed the Fallen Order sequel has been hit by a significant six-week delay.
Instead of arriving in stores on March 17, the game will now launch on April 28. In the lengthy statement below, it's confirmed that they're now in the final stage of "bug fixes to enhance performance, stability, polish, and most importantly, the player experience."
However, "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."
In all honesty, it's impossible to fault the team working on the game for wanting to release it in the best shape possible, avoiding a disastrous debut for the title and players alike (look what happened with Cyberpunk 2077). Based on what we've seen, Survivor will surely be worth the wait too.
Picking up five years after the events of Jedi: Fallen Order, Jedi: Survivor is a third-person, narrative-driven action-adventure game from Respawn Entertainment, developed in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games. If this trailer is any indication, the stakes have increased dramatically in this follow-up, with new supporting characters, locations, and gameplay mechanics.
No longer a Padawan, Cal has come into his own and grown into a powerful Jedi Knight.
Carrying the memories and expectations of the Jedi Order with him, his crusade against the Empire has only become more perilous. The Dark Times are closing in - with enemies new and familiar surrounding him, Cal will need to decide how far he’s willing to go to save those closest to him.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC.
