Publisher Nacon and developer Daedalic Entertainment have delayed The Lord of the Rings: Gollum from its previously planned September 1 release date across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam “by a few months.” A new release date will be announced in the near future.
It is unclear whether this will also delay the Switch version, which was due out later in 2022—after the release of the other versions.
