Gollum was originally set to be released in 2021 but was quietly delayed to 2022 at the start of last year. Gollum was then set to launch on September 1, 2022, a date that was announced just two months ago. Depending on the interpretation of what “by a few months” means, there’s still hope for fans that the game will be released this year. There’s no news on the release date for the Nintendo Switch version of the game, which was set for November 30, 2022. More information on that will likely come once Daedalic Entertainment reveals the new release date for the game.
