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

In a press release, Daedalic Entertainment said “[i]n 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.” An exact date hasn’t been announced yet, so fans will have to wait  for a release date “with an exact timing in the near future.”

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