The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Delayed For Polishing

Daedalic Entertainment and NACON issued a statement earlier today that The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be delayed for several months. The team plans to send out another press release once they have determined the new release date. Expect it on the PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch in the near future. The decision comes as a result of wanting to ensure the product is well-polished at launch and a good experience for players.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum tells the tale of the little gremlin-like creature and his unique history. Daedalic and NACON reiterated their commitment to sharing their vision while honoring the original vision in J.R.R. Tolkien’s work. The most recent trailer debuted earlier this month, offering a look at the adventure game starring the little creatcher himself and some of the designs of Tolkien’s other iconic characters.
