The Force is strong with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, but so is controversy. The newest title from Respawn Entertainment has been a critical success, although its launch has been plagued with technical problems, to the point that the studio saw themselves forced to publicly apologize. Be that as it may, Electronic Arts is satisfied with how it is performing in the market.

During a financial results presentation of the company, Andrew Wilson - CEO of EA - shared his joy for the sales of the video game during its first days in stores.

“We’re overjoyed”

“Within the first few weeks, millions of players have joined Cal Kestis and BD-1 in their rebellion against the Empire,” Wilson said. “On Jedi, we’re overjoyed. We made the bold decision to move the title six weeks to give the team the opportunity to really get to the quality of the game that they wanted”.

According to Wilson, they are building on the foundation of Jedi: Fallen Order, the first installment. “it’s certainly been a very strong launch for us. It’s still very early days, I think it’s been 11 days now, but we find ourselves in a different market dynamic.” Judging by the statements, the manager believes that expectations have been exceeded, also with respect to the original game.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor went on sale on April 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. Respawn Entertainment continues to work on new patches to improve performance and fix bugs, especially in the PC version, which is plagued with problems.
