Star Wars Jedi: Survivor became controversial due to technical issues at launch and saw many negative reviews on Steam. While critical reviews were positive, general audiences were less pleased with the launch state.
However, the game has been far from a failure, as it managed to achieve 30% higher launch sales than Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in the UK.
Although physical sales were down, with the digital data, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor actually beat Star War Jedi: Fallen Order's launch sales by over 30%. This is because Survivor's digital accounted almost double what Fallen Order managed

The previous game was already a huge success. With over 10 million copies sold in less than a year, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order exceeded the developers’ expectations in nearly every way.
As such, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor could turn out to be an even bigger success. The game improves in various aspects compared to its predecessor, but technical issues currently hold it back.
Currently, the title needs fixes for issues like framerates, animations, and dialogue bugs. These changes could bring even more attention to the game.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor also saw a much larger share of digital sales in the UK at launch. However, this may have more to do with the increasing popularity of digital media.
Following an apology from EA, the developers are currently working on patches for the game, with fixes planned for both consoles and PC in order to address the multiple known issues.
