German outfit Daedalic Entertainment has made two big announcements overnight regarding its Lord of the Rings: Gollum project.
Firstly, the game will no longer be launching in 2021, with the game pushed back to 2022. And secondly, Daedalic Entertainment has entered into a co-publishing and distribution agreement with French company Nacon for Lord of the Rings: Gollum.
A press release was issued about the new release date and partnership, which stated the following:
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 novel series by J.R.R. Tolkien.
While it’s a disappointment that we have to wait longer to play as Smeagol, the extra development time can only be a good thing.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will launch in 2022 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X&S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
