Respawn Entertainment has issued an apology to PC players for the state of the desktop edition of new release Star Wars Jedi: Survivor — The statement was issued this weekend after a torrent of complaints rolled in from players on Steam, decrying the RPG’s critical bugs, frequent crashes, and generally unoptimized nature.

In addition to the above problems, the notorious issue of DRM has risen its head once again, locking some players out under the mistaken belief that they had the sequel booted on several PCs at once. In a recent report from the techheads over at Digital Foundry, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was bestowed the questionable title of “Worst AAA PC port of 2023 so far”, complaining of framerate drops, texture stutter, and a lack of support for software such as DLSS and XeSS.

“We are aware that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor isn’t performing to our standards for a percentage of our PC players, in particular those with high-end machines or certain specific configurations,” begins Respawn’s statement, issued to Twitter. “While there is no single, comprehensive solution for PC performance, the team has been working on fixes we believe will improve performance across a spectrum of configurations.”

“We are committed to fixing these issues as soon as possible, but each patch requires significant testing to ensure we don’t introduce new problems. Thanks for understanding and apologies to any of our players experiencing these issues. We will continue to monitor performance across all platforms and share update timing as soon as it is available.”

Launching on April 28, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor received high scores from many critics, praising the adventure’s characters, combat, and expansive worlds. While it’s more than likely that many of these reviewers played the PS5/Xbox Series X editions of the game, the high praise will only add further sourness to PC players, who must now wait for Electronic Arts and Respawn to make good on its promised “weeks” of patches and updates.
