On Monday, Daedalic Entertainment and NACON announced that the upcoming stealth-adventure game The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been delayed once again, this time only “by a few months,” according to the publisher. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was initially expected to arrive in September. No new release date has been given following today’s announcement.
Daedalic broke the news in a statement on Twitter as well as in a press release. “We are dedicated to meeting our community’s expectations and uncovering the untold story of Gollum in a way that honors the vision of J. R. R. Tolkien,” the message reads. “That being said, 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.”
This is not the first time that The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been delayed. The game was initially delayed in January 2021, which pushed its release to 2022. Although the game won’t be ready in time for its previous September 1 release date, perhaps Gollum’s adventure will still arrive before the end of the year. When the time comes, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will release for PC as well as PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
