The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Gets New Release Window

After numerous delays, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has seemingly been delayed again and now has a new release window. Co-publisher Nacon confirmed the game’s new launch window recently, stating that the stealth-adventure title will now release sometime between April and September 2023, within the company’s first half of its fiscal year.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was originally set to release in September 2022 but a few months prior, co-publisher Daedalic Entertainment confirmed that it would be delayed by “a few months.” Those months took a bit longer than expected and it looks like a small delay has shifted the game to release sometime before September 2023. It’s still set to release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC unless plans change in development.

The first gameplay trailer arrived in June last year, promising a stealth-heavy adventure where players assume the role of one of The Lord of the Rings‘ antagonists, Gollum. The creature has to evade Sauron’s forces and sneak around corners of Middle-earth, though it’s unclear how the story will unfold and where it will lead to.

The publishers released a statement last year talking about the delay:

“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.”

No formal statement has been provided regarding Nacon and Daedalic’s decision to release it between April and September 2023, but hopefully these delays aren’t signs of trouble.
