Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Is Coming To PS4 And Xbox One

The Last (Gen) Hope

Here’s something of a surprise – during a recent earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson has reportedly revealed that this year’s successful current-gen exclusive sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, is going to get a port to the older PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

“Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is pure blockbuster entertainment, rooted in a timeless, culture-defining IP,” Wilson is quoted as saying (via VGC).

“Our team at Respawn proudly launched this title to critical acclaim and commercial success. Millions of players have already engaged with the game, making this one of the biggest events in the Star Wars galaxy this year. Thanks to the strength of this legendary franchise and community demand, our development team has committed to bringing this Jedi experience to PS4 and Xbox One.

“Over the coming year, we will harness the community’s passion and capitalise on key Star Wars franchise moments to drive continued engagement for this incredible game.”

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has seemingly been a massive contributor to the publisher’s huge Q1 earnings, with EA’s CFO adding, “Based on the strength of the IP, the engaging gameplay, and new ways to bring the title to players, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will continue to deliver long-term value.”

It’ll definitely be interesting to see how a port to older hardware is handled, given the experience is still not entirely optimal on current-gen consoles even after months of patches, but it’s great to see it’ll be made available to even more players without them having to fork out for new hardware.

We gave Star Wars Jedi: Survivor a huge 9/10 in our review, saying “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.”
