The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Delayed to 2022

News of the delay came alongside the announcement of the game’s new publishing partnership.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will now arrive on PC and consoles in 2022, according to a recent announcement from the game’s publishers. The new release date was revealed as part of a recently announced partnership between NACON and Daedalic Entertainment. The two companies will co-publish and distribute The Lord of the Rings: Gollum next year.

The publishers will be working alongside Middle-Earth Enterprises, the company that owns the adaptation rights to the J.R.R. Tolkien novels. “The two companies decided to join forces to ensure that the game will meet the expectations of fans of The Lord of the Rings and fully leverage the power of the new generation of consoles,” said the companies in a recent press release.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-rich stealth adventure that puts players in the role of Gollum. Just like in the novels and films, you are tasked with doing whatever it takes to reunite with the ring. The choices you make throughout the game will have an effect on Gollum’s split personality. “It is up to you to decide whether the darker side of Gollum takes over or if there is a spark of reason left in what once was Sméagol,” reads the game’s Steam page.
