We were getting ready to experience the next adventure of Cal Kestis and the gang in March, but unfortunately we will have to wait a bit longer now. EA has just announced, that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been delayed by several weeks.

Jedi: Survivor is now slated to release on April 28, for PC, Xbox Series and PS5. That means that the game has been pushed back by roughly six weeks from its original release date on March 17.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Delayed For Further Polishing & Bug Fixing

In a statement posted on Twitter, game director Stig Asmussen explained the reason for the delay. According to the statement, the game is "content complete" and the team is now focused on giving the title the "level of polish fans deserve".

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. We are now focused entirely on the final stage: bug fixes to enhance performance, stability, polish, and most importantly, the player experience.

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.

It's of course annoying when games get delayed, but it's actually good to see, that the team is getting a bit more time to stick the landing with Survivor. When Fallen Order came out, it was a technical disaster, running like schmutz on pretty much any platform.

The statement emphasizes that "Jedi: Survivor is a direct response to the feedback from our community", which reads like an indirect acknowledgment of the issues the first game faced. So, giving the team more time to get it right this time is actually great to see.

Let's hope the delay will ensure that Jedi: Survivor ends up being the great game we all hope it will be. Are you as hyped for Survivor as we are? Let us know in the comments!
