Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, has been delayed about six weeks from its original release date of March 17, 2023. The announcement was posted on social media by director Stig Asmussen and the delay gives the team time to focus on polishing the game for final release.
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 that 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.
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.
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.
May the Force be with you.
Stig, and the Star Wars Jedi Team
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was originally released on November 15, 2019 and came as a pleasant surprise to many gamers. Some would say it’s the best single-player Star Wars game we’ve gotten in over a decade, maybe even the best since Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
If you originally had Star Wars Jedi: Survivor scheduled for March in your gaming calendar, you’ll have to shift that over to late April now. If you need something to fill in the gap, check out our schedule of upcoming video game releases here.
