The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Way back in August of 2020, it was revealed that Gollum would be starring in his own video game. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was originally planned for a 2021 release. Obviously, that didn’t happen.

Today, we got word that, once again, Gollum’s digital adventure is going to be postponed for a while for some additional polish. Here’s what the press release says:

Daedalic Entertainment and NACON would like to thank all players for their patience and support so far. During the past several years, the team has been working hard to share our vision of a remarkable story, set 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’ll update with an exact timing in the near future.

Daedalic and NACON are grateful for their passionate community and will be happy to share this unique adventure with them soon.

While it’s always sad to see an anticipated game get its release date pushed back, this is preferable to having games release in a half-finished state. I’m sure I don’t have to even mention the name of a recent example (cough, Cyberpunk 2077, cough).

The press release doesn’t mention a new date — or even a release window — but it does mention that the game will be out on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch whenever that mysterious date arrives.

I should also point out that fans of The Lord of the Rings also have the Moria survival/crafting game to look forward to, so there are big adventures on the horizon for those with a little bit of patience.
