EA Has Apologised For Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s PC Issues

These are not the framerates you're looking for.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launched last Friday to mostly-universal praise from critics, but its release has been somewhat soured in the days to follow thanks to widespread issues plaguing players on PC.

At the time of writing, the game’s user reviews on Steam are flagged as “mixed” with nearly 6000 negative reviews. These are pretty well unanimously in derision of the game’s poor performance on PC hardware which is reportedly worse for those using a combination of high-end GPUs and lower-performance CPUs, or anyone still on Windows 10 with newer hardware.

At least one huge patch has already been released for the PC version of the game, but the problems have been widely criticised enough that the below statement was released over the weekend:

“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.

“For example, players using cutting-edge, multi-threaded chipsets designed for Windows 11 were encountering problems on Windows 10, or high-end GPUs coupled with lower- performing CPUs also saw unexpected frame loss. Rest assured, we are working to address these cases quickly.

“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.

“The Star Wars Jedi Team”

We reviewed the game on PS5 and, while noting that there are also some occasional performance issues on console, said “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor sharpens combat and exploration to a fine point while delivering a story that goes all in on its characters and human drama. Some minor pacing issues can’t stop the game from achieving exciting new heights for the series, if you’re willing to let it take you there.”
