The Lord of the Rings: Gollum had already experienced some setbacks, and now Daedalic Entertainment has announced it's made the tough decision to delay the release of the game, across all platforms - including Xbox systems - by a "few months".
The reason behind this is in order to deliver the "best possible experience" for players. When the game does finally arrive, it promises to bring a remarkable story set in a breathtaking world with magic and wonder.
Here's the full announcement:
First of all, we would like to thank all of you for your patience and support so far. Over the last years, our team has been working hard to bring you a remarkable story in a breathtaking world, filled with magic and wonder.
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.
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.
We are grateful for our passionate community and we cannot wait to share this unique adventure with you soon! Daedalic Entertainment
As noted in the message above, there's no exact release date or even a release window for this game. This story-driven action adventure was previously confirmed for September 1st, 2022.
When it does arrive, players will take on a perilous journey as Gollum, as he chases the only thing precious to him. Gollum is both skillful and cunning, but also must manage his split personality - made up of one mind and two egos.
Are you looking forward to getting your hands on this game? How do you feel about this delay? Comment below.
I know its SEO, but every time this site, or Push Square, add at the end "For XBox" or "For PS4, PS5".... its very very confusing to read. First thought, every single time: "What? its delayed on Xbox but not PlayStation??" or the other way around if reading the headline there.
@Tharsman That is exactly how I read it too.
Naming a specific platform in the title makes it appear that it was delayed on that platform specifically.
I don’t think any amount of delays will save this game
@Tharsman Yeah, tabloid journalism. In big words it's called sensationalism. Really not a fan of this. Use clear, useful titles. We'll read it anyway. It's not like this is Nintendolife with many articles a day.
On topic, game looks bad, it's a pass from me.
@Tharsman +1. I already had seen the news so knew it was delayed on all platforms but the titles is misleading at best.
@Liam_Doolan unrelated to the article, but why do i need to complete a captcha just to enter the website now? very annoying :/
totally agree this is really starting to get on my nerves as mentioned it makes you think its just xbox thats delayed and they do it with games making it sound like its a exclusive when its not
Don't care, never gonna play it, not even if it's on gamepass, can't see myself playing as Gollum, just can't identify myself with that character
Yeah I'd agree with the statements above. If a game is delayed for all platforms, or for more than one platform, there's really no need to specify just one platform that it's delayed for in an article or title.
On topic, I'm really not digging the look of this game. I'll probably skip it by.
After so much lacklustre feedback it’s been getting from those who have recently played it you can’t blame them for scrambling for the delay button…but September was looking a pretty ideal month for it…if they can’t hit December then next year even more things will be going against them. Sounds like future day 1 gamepass release to me this one.
@Tharsman Yeah that annoys me across the sides when they do that. Even in the article with "coming to xbox" and "coming to ps4, ps5", it just makes more sense to list all platforms, regardless of if it's a PS or XB based site, a third party multiplat is just that, and reporting on the multiplat should report all platforms, not just the one associated with the particular subsite you're reading. I don't even think it's sensationalism since they do it in the articles, it just seems like a policy thing that just makes it confusing to read when I then have to google after reading the article to see what platforms are actually involved.
