Deadalic Entertainment and Nacon have just announced that upcoming Tollkein inspired adventure The Lord Of The Rings Gollum has been pushed back to 2022.
It looks like 2022 is going to be a massive year for Tolkein fans. Alongside the rumored launch window for Amazon’s Lord of The Rings MMO, Deadalic’s The Lord of the Rings Gollum is now set to arrive sometime in 2022. In an announcement to press, Deadalic and new co publishing partner Nacon, the publisher behind the upcoming Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, have detailed the reasons behind the delay to their new title.
According to the two, the new co-operative coming together and the subsequent delay is 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”. This is not all that unexpected and probably will not be the last of many upcoming titles that will see push backs as developers draw a hard line between the power of old and new generation hardware. The result of not understanding the difference is clear and present in the abysmal console launch of Cyberpunk 2077.
We know that The Lord of the Rings Gollum will land on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, Nintendo Switch, and PC when it does launch in 2022. This story-driven action adventure takes place in the fictional realms fans will already know well, but with a very different perspective as Gollum chases that one precious thing. As you climb, leap and sneak your way past dangers you’ll decide which of Gollum’s personalities to follow as this adventure unfolds.
