Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been a success for publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment. The game sold well on all platforms, but that doesn’t mean the game is perfect. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was plagued with issues on launch. Most of these problems have now been fixed, but some still exist within the game.
Vince Zampella, the CEO of Respawn Entertainment, has recently given an interview to USG saying that the company could have used a bit more time in order to better polish the title. He also said the game fitted that specific holiday time-frame, due to all the other Star Wars properties like the movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the TV series The Mandalorian.
I cannot think of a game that came out recently and it was perfect on launch. Most companies, if not all, are pushing games through the door way too early. Usually it’s because of the publisher, but sometimes developers can also be responsible. I’ve seen much worse than the launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Still, it’s never alright, no matter the reason.
Thankfully gamers are becoming less tolerant to such things, as they should, since these are the people who keep gaming companies alive by purchasing their titles.
