French games publisher Nacon, which is co-publishing Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming action-adventure game The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, recently released an earnings report that detailed yet another delay for the Tolkein-inspired adventure.
The report lists Gollum as one of their titles that will be released in “the first half of the FY 2023-2024,” which due to Nacon’s offset fiscal calendar, places that window between April and September of this year.

Previously, Daedalic Entertainment delayed the title from its initial 2021 window to 2022, then delayed it again “by a few months,” offering no specific release date at that time, but not so far off as this new timeframe places it.

Gollum is a stealth game with a narrative focus that takes place during Bilbo’s hayday chronicled in The Hobbit books and movies, immediately after the halfling comes to possess the One Ring. IGN saw 20-minutes of last year and was not impressed, which may explain the delays.
