The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, the upcoming action-adventure game from developer Daedalic Entertainment and publisher Nacon, has been delayed once again. Officially announced in 2019, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was originally set to release in 2021. However, the project ended up being delayed to this fall. Now, the game's release window has been postponed once again, but it's still unclear if it will be released by the end of 2022.
The official The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Twitter account announced today that the game will be delayed by a "few months." The game was set to release on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms in early September, with the Nintendo Switch version coming in November. Now, these release dates will no longer be met, with the game having now been postponed to an undetermined release window.

That being said, in order to deliver the best possible experience, we have decided to push the release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum by a few months. We will update you with an exact timing in the near future," Gollum's developers said on social media. "We are grateful for our passionate community and we cannot wait to share this unique adventure with you soon!"
At this point, it's still unclear if The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be released before 2022 ends, but it looks like the Switch version won't arrive until early 2023.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum features the story of Gollum (originally known as Smeagol), the iconic monster from J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy novels. Its gameplay is described to be similar with the Prince of Persia series.
