It goes on to say that in order to hit their desired "quality bar", they have "added six crucial weeks to our release schedule - Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will now launch globally on April 28th."
Brendy liked the first game quite a bit in his Fallen Order review, praising its lightsaber combat, its boss fights, and its popcorn adventure pace. Jedi: Survivor continues the story of Jedi: Fallen Order, picking up five years after its ending with the same characters, but it also seems to build on its combat systems, with more lightsaber fighting stances and added blaster combat.
