EA is postponing its upcoming Star Wars game Jedi Survivor. The successor to the action game “Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order” was originally supposed to be released in March, but according to EA it is now only planned for April 28th.
The additional development time should help developer studio Respawn keep the quality high for the action game, EA said on Twitter. The game is to be polished over the six weeks – major changes to the content are not to be expected in such a short period of time.
EA announced “Jedi Survivor” last May. “Jedi Survivor” is set to take place five years after the events of “Jedi Fallen Order” – i.e. between episodes 3 and 4 and thus around the same time as the new Disney + series “Kenobi”. Part 1, released in 2019, mixed gameplay mechanics from the “Souls” games with platform segments from games like “Tomb Raider”. In “Fallen Order” publisher EA dispensed with elements such as loot boxes and DLC, multiplayer elements are completely missing. Especially fans of traditional single-player titles were happy about it, on Steam “Fallen Order” has 90 percent positive ratings.
“Apex Legends Mobile” before the end
While “Jedi Survivor” is pushed back, it can’t go any further for another EA game. The US publisher has now announced that the mobile version of “Apex Legends” is to be scrapped. After a strong start, the content delivered via update no longer met the quality requirements, EA writes in a statement.
EA developed and maintains “Apex Legends Mobile” together with partner Tencent. The decision to stop the game now was made jointly by both partners. As of May 1, 2023, “Apex Legends Mobile” can no longer be played. Purchased additional content will be lost as a result, refunds are not planned. Purchased in-game currency cannot be refunded either, writes EA in an FAQ.
