As the release date for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor approaches, EA has announced that a major patch will be available on launch day for all platforms, followed by additional updates in the coming weeks.
While this news may bring relief to some fans, it is also a cause for concern as it suggests that the game may not be fully ready for its debut.
The announcement was made unexpectedly on the official EA Star Wars Twitter account, leaving many fans wondering why the game was not delayed to address the reported bugs and performance issues.
In response to the announcement, one Twitter user named Erik asked, “Couldn’t you just delay the game instead of releasing something you know is full of bugs and performance issues?” However, EA did not respond to the inquiry.

Despite high ratings, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been plagued with issues. In a review of the game, one user criticized its performance mode, stating that it was “probably the worst of any game” on PlayStation 5 and that “developers had to resort to significant graphical compromises.”
The problems seem to be even worse on PC, where even high-end graphics cards struggle to reach 60 frames per second at 1440p resolution due to the game’s high demand for VRAM.
As the release date approaches, fans are left wondering if the game will be ready for launch. While Xbox Series X reviewers have reported fewer issues, final tests will have to wait until the game is officially released on April 28.
It remains to be seen whether the game’s promised updates will be enough to fix the reported issues. However, it is clear that EA is committed to improving the game’s performance and accessibility with the upcoming patches.
With any luck, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will live up to its potential as a thrilling and immersive gaming experience for Star Wars fans.
