If you’re anything like us, you’ve been eagerly waiting for some more news about the upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum game. As some wise man once said, be careful what you wish for since not all news can be good. The developer of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, Daedalic Entertainment announced that the game is going to be delayed and the project is being pushed back until 2022.

However, as a part of the announcement, Daedalic’s team also shared some details about the publishing process. Apparently, the developers struck a deal with Nacon in order to publish the game. The official statement reads:

“The two companies decided to join forces to ensure that the game will meet the expectations of fans of The Lord of the Rings and fully leverage the power of the new generation of consoles. The universe will be faithfully represented thanks to the partnership with Middle-earth Enterprises, the company that holds the adaptation rights to the series by J.R.R. Tolkien.” 

In case you haven’t heard about The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, you should know that it’s a story-driven action-adventure game where the player assumes the role of Gollum. The game’s description reveals a few details about what can players expect from its gameplay:

“Climb, leap and sneak your way past dangers or into advantageous spots. Gollum is skillful and sly, but also torn by his split personality. It is up to you to decide whether the darker side of Gollum takes over or if there is a spark of reason left in what once was Sméagol.”

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum should be released for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. However, the wait will be as long as the journey to Mount Doom itself, so many things might change until then. We’ll keep you posted if we’ll find out any more details.
