EA and Respawn issues apology for state of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PC

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor continues a troubling trend of AAA titles coming out in an unoptimized state, especially on the PC.

The PC version has suffered the most glitches on release.

Star Wars Day is coming up in a few days and things are not looking good for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The PC version of the game has suffered some major performance issues.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was launched last week on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. Unfortunately, the PC version of the game proved problematic with frequent crashes and players getting locked out.

EA and Respawn Entertainment have apologized for the current state of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, saying:

We are aware that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor isn’t performing to our standards for a percentage of our PC players, in particular those with high-end machines or certain specific configurations.

The statement adds, "While there is no single, comprehensive solution for PC performance, the team has been working on fixes we believe will improve performance across a spectrum of configurations. We are committed to fixing these issues as soon as possible, but each patch requires significant testing to ensure we don’t introduce new problems."

"Thanks for understanding and apologies to any of our players experiencing these issues. We will continue to monitor performance across all platforms and share update timing as soon as it is available."

Fans are upset that Respawn delayed the game by six weeks and still released a broken version. Digital Foundry called the PC version, "the worst triple-a PC port of 2023 so far."

According to reports, high-end PCs are particularly affected by these issues with Survivor. Gamers using "cutting-edge, multi-threaded chipsets designed for Windows 11" have encountered issues when running the game on Windows 10. PC users with high-end GPUs paired with lower-end CPUs have encountered unexpected frame loss.

EA promised to release "weeks" of fixes for the game.

EA has promised to release "weeks" of fixes for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. However, the team has not given a comprehensive solution for the PC performance issues. The studio is currently working to "improve performance across a spectrum of configurations." The patches will require "significant testing" to ensure that it doesn’t add any other issue to the game.

In addition to the massive day-one update for Jedi: Survivor, Respawn also released a new patch yesterday. The new update for PC includes performance improvements for non-raytraced rendering. The update for consoles addresses multiple crashes in various areas of the game and crashes related to skipping cinematics.

Due to the PC issues, the game which has been critically acclaimed, received mixed reviews from players on Steam.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is available for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
