Well, bad news for Star Wars and LEGO games fans. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is getting delayed from its spring 2021 release window to an unannounced date. It’s no April Fools, folks, since it’s already past April 1 and it’s not a really amusing joke no matter how you look at it. Still, let’s hope there’s nothing too serious happening behind the scene that ends up postponing the game’s release date. Here’s what TT Games has to say about the delay, via Gematsu:
All of us at TT Games are working hard to make LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga the biggest and best-ever LEGO game—but we’re going to need more time to do it. We won’t be able to make our intended spring release date, but will provide updated launch timing as soon as possible.“
However, this wasn’t the first time LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga got delayed. The game was planned to be released on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on October 20, 2020. However in August, out of the left-field, both Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games said that it is instead going to come out in 2021. Aside from LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment also decided to push back three of its highly anticipated, upcoming titles:
- Hogwarts Legacy and Gotham Knights, delayed to 2022 from their initial 2021 release window.
- Back 4 Blood, Left 4 Dead spiritual sequel, delayed to October 12 from its June 22 release date.
The game is said to feature 300 playable characters, taken from all nine Skywalker saga movies and other spin-offs. Including the forthcoming Clone Troopers-focused cartoon series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch. It will launch for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
