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.
