Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the highly anticipated sequel to Fallen Order, arriving on April 28. While the game launches on current-gen consoles and PC, here’s whether it’ll be available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

While other new titles like Hogwarts Legacy opted to release a last-gen version later down the line, there are currently no plans for Jedi: Survivor to hit older hardware.

The game’s director, Stig Asmussen, justified the lack of a PS4 or Xbox One release in an interview with PLAY Magazine, saying that the team didn’t want to scale back their ambitions to cater to the less powerful systems.

He explained that in the sequel Respawn have created “much larger maps, with more detail, greater density, broader enemy/NPC variety, and overall fidelity,” and they wanted to build on the strong foundation laid by Jedi: Fallen Order.

“We didn’t want to break what we did in the first game because it was well received, but we wanted to evolve/enhance the experience,” Asmussen continued. “This new generation allowed us to do exactly that, and I believe it translates to a true new-gen experience in the Star Wars universe.”

Based on these comments, it seems unlikely that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will arrive on PS4 or Xbox One in the future.

It could arrive on the Nintendo Switch as a cloud version later down the road but it’s unlikely. EA’s website only allows pre-orders for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, Epic Games Store, and the EA App.

If you’re a Star Wars fan with only a Nintendo Switch then Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga or old favorites such as Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy or Republic Commando are great choices. Plus, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom arrives on May 12.
