Star Wars Jedi: Survivor dropped earlier this year to critical acclaim and the adoration of fans. It built on its predecessor's perks, added open world elements, and provided a deeply satisfying story. Safe to say it was a killer sequel.
However, those of us who still haven't upgraded to new hardware never got the change to play it. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor only came to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S at launch.
As the new consoles have been out almost three years, this wasn't much of a surprise. The phasing out of the old had to happen eventually. But it was still disappointing.
Now, however - in a strange turn of events - it's been announced that Survivor will be dropping on PS4 and Xbox One. We don't know when, but the news is official.
Is Star Wars: Jedi Survivor coming to PS4 and Xbox One??
Yes, Star Wars: Jedi Survivor is coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
Back in February, game director Stig Asmussen claimed that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was skipping previous consoles because the newer hardware allowed the developers "to create much larger maps, with more detail, greater density, broader enemy/NPC variety, and overall fidelity".
However, it was announced during EA's earnings briefing that a port to previous consoles is now in early development. So, it turns out that players on the older systems will get a chance to try this game after all.
When is Star Wars: Jedi Survivor coming to PS4 and Xbox One?
As to when the Xbox One and PS4 release date will be for Star Wars: Jedi Survivor, it's difficult to say - but there's no harm in speculating!
As the game is in its "early stages" we wouldn't expect it to come out any time soon, and perhaps not even this year. That being said, the game has already been made.
If we had to guess, we'd predict that Star Wars: Jedi Survivor will not launch on PS4 or Xbox One until late 2024 or something like that. But that is just a guess!
Hogwarts Legacy won't release on the Switch until November this year, some time after its initial launch in February, showing that it can take some time to scale a game down for consoles with less power.
