Earlier this week, EA and Respawn apologized to PC gamers for the sorry state of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor at launch. Their apology appears to be sincere, as they have now issued an update to address the game's performance issues.
The sequel to 2019's Fallen Order had been delayed by six weeks, and prior to its launch, EA had committed to dedicating several weeks to developing patches aimed at resolving the bugs and performance issues identified in the game's pre-release version. According to a recent tweet by EA, the game publisher reaffirmed that additional updates are on the way, stating:

Despite the host of problems plaguing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the action-adventure game has garnered critical acclaim, with some even hailing it as "the best Star Wars game in 20 years." One can only hope that gamers will share the same sentiment once all the promised patches have been rolled out.
