The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been delayed once again by Developer Daedelic Entertainment. It was announced in 2019 and set to launch in 2021, but was delayed to this Fall. Now, the release window has been shifted again to this Fall, but even that isn’t concrete.
The official The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Twitter account shared this message earlier today:
It’s still set to release on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, but the release dates are now undetermined. The Nintendo Switch version of the game was supposed to release even later than the other consoles, but we’ll have to see what that brings when the game actually releases.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is set before the events of The Lord of the Rings book. It’s an action-adventure game where you play as Gollum. Here’s how Daedelic Entertainment describes the game:
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action RPG where our twisted protagonist is on a quest to regain the only thing precious to him. Torn by his fractured psyche, players will have to manage both Sméagol and Gollum on a journey that will take him across famous locales, revealing more about his time as a slave below the Dark Tower and his stray with the Elves of Mirkwood, as he interacts with iconic characters from the series.
The “few months” delay could mean that the game releases in 2022, but it’s more likely that an early 2023 release is in the books for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. How do you feel about the delay? Were you excited to see The Lord of the Rings: Gollum this year? Let us know in the comments or let me know on Twitter @HunterBVideo.
