Respawn Entertainment issues apology for Jedi: Survivor PC issues

Respawn has acknowledged issues with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PC and says fixes are on the way.


While Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has received favorable reviews among critics, there has been a common consensus that the game’s PC version isn’t up to snuff. With performance issues plaguing the experience for a portion of players, many have called for a substantial patch as soon as possible. Developer Respawn Entertainment has released a statement, apologizing for the issues and confirming that it’s working on the necessary fixes.

The statement from Respawn Entertainment was shared in a tweet earlier today. It acknowledges that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has had severe issues for some PC players, stating that it’s primarily affecting those with higher-end PCs. The game was released today and currently sits at a Mostly Negative consensus rating on Steam. Fortunately, Respawn Entertainment has already diagnosed the issue and says fixes are in the works.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is just the latest AAA game to release with glowing reviews, but be bogged down by poor performance on PC. Most recently, Naughty Dog had to address issues after receiving backlash for The Last of Us Part 1‘s PC port. EA had the same problem on its hands with Wild Hearts back in February. Like those games, the developers are working on fixes, so here’s hoping that affected PC players can soon enjoy the latest grand adventure in a galaxy far away.

      Ah yes. The problem was that your hardware was TOO advanced for the software.

      Apologize less, release when it’s done more

        Yup. And don't bullshit us that it's "for polish", when that shit is just half cooked.

      For anyone who's worked at a AAA studio, do you KNOW your games are broken right before you release them? The issue seems so widespread that I find it impossible to believe that the developers are shocked to find out that it runs like dog shit. How does this stuff play out behind the scenes? Thank you for your time, I'll hang up and listen.

        Developers knew, the managers at the top, less so.

          Oh I'm sure they knew as well but decided it was worth it anyway

          We're probably seeing it more now because they can't force 70hr work weeks and crunch time for the last 6-12 months like they used to.

        Management know. Even Xbox/Sony know - they have cert processes but they'll grant waivers for bugs in big enough games that they think will push their platform sales.

        I QA tested Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness decades ago which was a totally incomplete broken piece of shit that didn't even qualify as alpha. Did a 26 hour testing shift. Everyone knew it was broken but they held firm on the release, and sure enough it got panned and sold like shit.
