Since its release, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been criticized for its poor performance on personal computers (PCs). Despite the overwhelming majority of unfavorable user reviews that have been put on the game’s page on Steam, it has managed to establish itself as the platform’s second-biggest Star Wars title.
It appears from a post on Twitter by user @Morwull that the well-known performance difficulties have not discouraged gamers from picking up the game even though they are aware of them. The current count of concurrent players at the game’s peak is 63,597. This is an impressive achievement for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. This puts it in a position where it is far more popular than the earlier game, which reached a peak player count of 46,550. Even though Jedi Survivor boasts some impressive peak player counts, more was needed to beat Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which has an 82,500 concurrent peak player count.
Despite its big performance issues, Jedi Survivor (63,5k ccu) surpassed its predecessor, Fallen Order (46,5k ccu), and became the second biggest Star Wars release on Steam platform, only behind Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (82,5k ccu)

The PC video game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was subjected to a barrage of bad reviews on Steam almost as soon as it was made available for purchase. This resulted in a large drop in its aggregate rating on the service. The prevalence of bugs and a general lack of optimization are two of players’ most frequent sources of discontent. The content creator known as @LegacyKillaHD allegedly played the game and discovered “tons of issues,” some of which included decreases in frame rate (FPS), glitches during cutscenes, and textures that did not load correctly.
In response to the negative reviews, the team behind Star Wars Jedi posted a less-than-encouraging response on Twitter. It read, “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.” This response was in response to the fact that there is no single comprehensive solution for PC performance. We are dedicated to finding and implementing solutions to these problems quickly. Nevertheless, each patch calls for a significant amount of testing to prevent introducing any new issues.
After the disastrous PC port of The Last of Us Part I earlier this year, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the latest AAA title to have a difficult launch on PC. This launch follows in the footsteps of the game’s predecessor.
