Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy's Switch/PC cross-play is a bug, will be fixed in the future

The dark side will be dealt with

Last week, we caught wind of an interesting situation with Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. While Switch players don't have any say in the online servers they were joining, PC players can join in with Switch players no problem. This means those on PC who have been playing for countless years, and are also playing with keyboard/mouse controls, can go in and absolutely mop the floor with Switch newcomers. Thankfully, that's not going to be the case much longer.

USGamer reached out to developer Asypr about the cross-play, which they claim is a bug. We also learn that a fix is in the works. Check out Asypr's full comment on the matter below.

We're absolutely thrilled and appreciative of the support that our fan community has given last week's launch of Star Wars™ Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. We are aware of the current bug that allows multiplayer cross play between PC and console. As with every game we work on, we are fully committed to delivering great gaming experiences for players, which includes a fair playing field for all. A remedy for this loophole is now in the works and will be available soon.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy players on Switch are getting dropped into servers with PC players, and it's leading to a bloodbath

Anger leads to suffering

Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy just hit the Switch a couple of days ago, and plenty of people are grabbing the game to hop online and relive some of their earlier multiplayer gaming days. I happen to be one of those people! I also happened to get my ass handed to me online, and now I know why.

While players on Switch can't specify which servers they want to join, players on PC can. That means anyone playing on PC can connect to Switch servers and absolutely dominate. We're talking about people who have been playing Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy on PC for years now, and they're dropping into Switch games and wiping the floor with everyone. Even if you're an experienced player, you're still going up against someone with keyboard and mouse support, which is definitely the way this game was intended to be played.

Furthermore, people playing on PC are able to use cheats and hacks to get yet another leg up on the Switch competition. I honestly doubt that anything is going to be done about this, but I hope I'm wrong. Consider this a word of warning for anyone who was planning to get this game on Switch for the multiplayer. You'll be in for a very tough fight!
