Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Split Screen Laggy/Delayed On Xbox

In this guide, we will be looking at fixing issues with Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker saga being laggy on Xbox. The Skywalker Saga is an awesome game that seems to be very popular. Probably because we have 9 star wars movies to play, with the added Lego humour! But if you are like us and love to play split screen, then you may have noticed that Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga at times can feel laggy and delayed in split-screen mode, on your Xbox One or Xbox series X/S.

We love this game as not only do you get to explore the galaxy completing missions and collecting bricks across the different movies, but you also get to battle in flight! But it’s no fun if the Lego star wars game is stuttering or lagging, making it hard to play on 2 player split-screen with a friend.

So in this guide, we have listed a few methods that will hopefully fix any issues you have been having like lag and delay in the Lego Skywalker Saga split screen on your Xbox console.

Why is 2 player split screen laggy in Lego Skywalker Saga?
