Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Angers Fans Over Controversial Release Decision
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has upset fans of the Star Wars franchise over a controversial decision regarding its release. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the sequel for years and now, it is just a few days away from release, however some fans may have to skip it.
An image of physical copies of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor leaked online and a small sticker above the rating on the front of the box indicates that a download is “required”. Since the game is reportedly over 140GB to download digitally, it can be assumed that the physical copy is similar in size.
A Blu-ray disc can only fit a limited amount of data, and while some games will use two discs, it seems that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor it will require a download for people to play the game. This means that not all of the data needed to play the game is on the drive and those without Internet will not be able to play the game. There are the issues of people with data caps, slow internet in some regions, and other variables that might prevent someone from being able to do the required download. For game curators, this is also frustrating, as the thought of the Xbox and PlayStation servers going offline one day could mean there would be no way to download the game in the future.
Obviously, this is upsetting people. Star Wars is a massive franchise with fans all over the world who may have difficulty downloading the game or not be able to download the game at all. Whether a fix will materialize remains to be seen, but fans are certainly not happy about this news.
