The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has now been delayed. The upcoming adaptation was scheduled to launch on September 1 (with a Switch port arriving later). Developer Daedalic Entertainment is taking a few extra months to polish up Gollum’s adventure.
It also may have something to do with fans who have been vocal about Gollum’s perceived lack of quality, especially after a recent gameplay trailer where the game looked very rough. It looks like Daedalic has taken these concerns seriously. The studio didn’t give a new release date, only saying it’s delaying the game “by a few months.” If it makes it better quality, it is a good thing.
The complete delay statement reads:
