Publisher Nacon has been working with Daedalic Entertainment on a brand new 'Lord of the Rings' game for some time now in the form of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. We've seen bits and pieces on the game for years at this stage, with the title announced before the launch of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and we now have a brand-new launch window.
Nacon says that LOTR: Gollum will hit PC and consoles "in the first half" of fiscal year 2023-2024. That would put Gollum's Xbox Series X|S launch at somewhere between April and September 2023.
Prior to July of last year, the LOTR-themed action adventure was aiming for a September 2022 launch, before the team delayed the game. At the time, Nacon didn't provide a new launch window, and as it turns out, the game could end up launching a full year after its previous concrete release date.
We'll just have to wait and see where The Lord of the Rings: Gollum arrives within that new 2023 launch window. Here's a bit more on what to expect from the game when it does land:
"The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure. Take on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to him. Gollum is skillful and cunning, but also torn by his split personality. One mind, two egos – you decide!"
