The Lord of the Rings: Gollum delayed, release date to be announced “in the near future”

It has been two months since we received any updates on Daedalic Entertainment and The Lord of the Rings: Gollum from NACON. Back then, we got a closer look at the game thanks to some screenshots and an official release date for PC and some consoles. Today, that September 1, 2022 release date is no more, as the game was delayed.

In a press release, Daedalic Entertainment said, “[i]In order to provide the best possible experience, we have decided to postpone the release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™ within a few months. An exact date has yet to be announced, so fans will have to wait for a release date “with exact timing in the near future.”

As I mentioned earlier, the original release date was September 1 for PC and consoles – except for the Nintendo Switch version. In various announcements on the game’s official Steam page, Twitter, etc., the Nintendo Switch version has always been mentioned as being released “at a later date” in 2022. Now that there’s a delay, don’t be too surprised though The Nintendo Switch version of Lord of the Rings: Gollum will eventually release in 2023.
