Gollum seems to have lost his way once again, as Daedalic Entertainment has informed about the delayed release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. The title will appear "several months" later than planned, so that - as always - the developers can deliver the 'best possible experience.' The exact date was not given.
This is not the first delay of a game featuring Gollum-Smeagol (spoiler?). Before the developers revealed the exact date, the release date was set for 2021. Of course, nothing came of it and it wasn't until this May when it was reported, that LotR: Gollum will hit the market on September 1, 2022.
Perhaps today's delay has to do with Internet users' reactions to the first gameplay trailer (available below). Many gamers mainly criticized the archaic visuals, although there were also those with reservations about the gameplay itself. Perhaps Daedalic Entertainment wants to give Gollum a similar facelift that was served to the movie Sonic?
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is coming to PC , Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 , PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch.
