There's no doubt that March was shaping up to be a mega-month for the Star Wars franchise, with the respective releases of The Mandalorian's third season and the long-awaited sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. However, it appears that a double celebration is no longer on the table as EA just announced that the anticipated video game's release has once again been halted which is frustrating, to say the least.
Taking to Twitter, EA's official Star Wars handle confirmed the unfortunate news, revealing that the upcoming game will undergo six more weeks of enhancement and polishing to meet Respawn's quality bar.
Here's what they had to say: "For the last three years, the 'Jedi' team here at Respawn has poured its collective heart and soul into 'Star Wars Jedi: Survivor', and we are proud to say the next chapter in the tale of Cal Kestis is content complete. We are now focused entirely on the final stage: bug fixes to enhance performance, stability, polish, and most importantly, the player experience."
"Jedi: Survivor' is a direct response to the feedback from our community, delivering expansive destinations to explore, evolved combat and traversal, and of course, the continuation of Cal and BD’s story. Making this game has truly made us a better team, and we have pushed ourselves at every level to make this the Star Wars sequel our fans expect from Respawn and Lucasfilm Games."
"In order for the team to hit the Respawn quality bar, provide the team the time they need, and achieve the level of polish our fans deserve, we have added six crucial weeks to our release schedule - Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will now launch globally on April 28th."

While it's admirable that EA was gracious enough to admit that the game isn't ready for mass consumption just yet, it's still quite frustrating because this isn't the first time Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has experienced delays. While a six-week wait isn't exactly all that grueling, there's a good chance that the fans' interest could decrease. Hopefully, that's not the case.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is now set for release on April 28, 2023.
