The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Delayed “By a Few Months”; Unspecified Release Date

Daedalic Entertainment and the official Twitter account for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum have announced that the game has been delayed by an unspecified number of months to meet the community’s expectations and honor the legacy of J.R.R. Tolkien. The team stated that the exact, updated release timing will be shared in the near future.

The full message is viewable below:


The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has players assume the role of the Gollum through action-adventure segments. The title also features stealth elements where players can interact with environments and narrative-style gameplay to progress through the story. The actions that players take will determine which side of Gollum they see. This refers to his split personality between Sméagol and Gollum, where Sméagol is the better behaved of the two. The gameplay has adventure segments of climbing and sneaking, along with some moments of action.

The game was initially announced in 2019 and has since garnered much attention from fans. However, even with the concerning delays, it only shows that the team delivers a quality experience to players.
