EA acknowledges performance issues with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PC
EA, the publisher of the newly released game, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, has recently acknowledged that the game is not performing up to their standards on PC. Despite positive reviews on PS5, Steam reviews have been largely negative, with 63% being negative a day after the game’s launch. Gamers are alleging that even high-end components are unable to run the game smoothly.
EA has taken responsibility and has promised to address these cases promptly. However, they have expressed that there may not be a single solution that can fix the issues as there are various PC configurations. EA has also indicated that Windows 10 users may be facing more problems than Windows 11 users, throwing shade at the former.
Similar issues have arisen with The Last of Us Part I on PC, which, like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, was delayed to ensure that it met quality standards but was later launched with numerous problems, leading to negative reviews on Steam. Additionally, Rock Paper Shotgun reports that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a “hot mess” on the Steam Deck, even though the previous game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, was well-received on the platform.
EA has not mentioned the Steam Deck in their response to negative reviews, but is actively working on fixing the issues. It remains to be seen how quickly they can resolve the problems and whether the game will recover from the negative reviews.
