EA and Respawn's upcoming sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been delayed, pushing itself back six weeks for additional polish and bug fixes, according to a statement made on Twitter by the company today.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was originally slated to release on March 17th, but now will release on April 28th according to Respawn, citing the need to combat bug fixes and additional polish to make everything as good as it can be at release.

The statement confirms that the upcoming action title that continues the story of the Jedi Cal Kestis is "content complete." As such, game director Stig Asmussen says that the team is "focused entirely on the final stage: bug fixes to enhance performance, stability, polish, and most importantly, the player experience."

The statement continues:

"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."

As such, players will be waiting for the full release to hit at the end of April, a force push of six weeks in order to "provide the team the time they need, and achieve the level of polish" Asmussen states Respawns fans "deserve."

A reveal trailer was unveiled back in December during The Game Awards 2022, giving a glimpse into the upcoming Jedi: Survivor. Check it out in the embed below. The news of this delay comes as Respawn and EA also announced it was pulling the plug on Apex Legends Mobile, shuttering the studio behind the title just before its first anniversary.
