The Lord of The Rings: Gollum Delay Confirmed

Gollum Delay

As the video game has adjusted to ongoing changes due to the pandemic from the past few years, the world-shifting event has continued to cause delays for many of the biggest new projects coming to video game consoles. Development complications, largely caused by remote work being something of a new industry standard, have led to nearly every major new game seeing some sort of delay during its development the past two years. One such big title fans have been eager for has been the Gollum-focused Lord of the Rings game. Now, it appears that a The Lord of the Rings: Gollum delay has been confirmed.

Developer Daedalic Entertainment has updated their official Twitter account with the announcement of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum delay. The game had been set to be released on September 1st later this year, albeit with the Nintendo Switch version of the game needing more time past that. The statement by Daedalic in the new tweet begins by thanking fans for their support and patience for the project during its years-long development so far. With their intent to honor the legacy of J.R.R. Tolkien and his creations, Daedalic gives this reasoning for the game’s new delay:

In order to deliver the best possible experience, we have decided to push the release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum by a few months. We will update you with an exact timing in the near future. We are grateful for our passionate community and we cannot wait to share this unique adventure with you soon!”
Daedalic has not yet given a new specific release date for the game, only specifically mentioning that the Gollum delay would last “a few months.” It is possible that The Lord of the Rings game could be released in time for the holiday season this year, but it very well could wait until the early months of 2023 to avoid the potential competition of other big games releasing before the holiday season. It is good to know that Daedalic is committed to making the Gollum game as highest of a quality that it can be. Hopefully when it releases, fans treat it as preciously as the one ring itself.
