The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Coming In 2021: First Game Reveal Of The PS5 And Xbox 2?
Great news for the gaming community and Lord of the Rings (LOTR) fans! A new title in the LOTR series is currently in the works.
According to a report, German video game developer and publisher Daedalic Entertainment has confirmed that they’re working on a new LOTR title. So far, the game is dubbed as “The Lord of the Rings: Gollum” and is expected to be released in 2021. Moreover, the said game will act as a prequel to the trilogy of books in which Daedalic’s license draws inspiration from.
What Kind Of Game Will It Be?
Not much is known about LOTR: Gollum. However, that in no way has stopped fans speculating. Some of the speculations include:
Firstly, given that it has the name “Gollum” on the title, players will probably play as Gollum.
Secondly, it could be a point ‘n’ click adventure game as Daedalic is primarily known for developing such games.
It’s The First Game Reveal For The PlayStation 5 And Xbox Two?
Given that it’s reportedly going to be released in 2021, some reports have coined the LOTR: Gollum as the first game reveal for the PS5 and Xbox 2.
But is it? Well, amidst all the rumors about the PS5 and Xbox 2, it could be. To not get lost in the sea of rumors regarding the release date of the consoles, please note that we will just be focusing on the PS5, Xbox Anaconda, and Xbox Lockhart, so the other rumored Xbox consoles such as Xbox Maverick will be excluded.
For the Xbox Anaconda and Lockhart, last month, reports have noted that Microsoft will reveal the said Xbox consoles at E3 2019. Although both will have SSDs for faster loading times, Lockhart will be the cheaper model and will have no disc tray, while Anaconda will be the expensive one (costing around $500) with a disc tray. What about the release date? Unfortunately, there was no mention of it.
For the PS5, to make it simple, basically, it’s either in 2019, 2020, or 2021. To give you an idea of how confusing it is:
- Back in 2018, there were some reports suggesting that it could be released in 2019.
- Other reports have reported that it will be revealed in 2019 and then released in 2020.
- Other reports also claimed that although the ideal release date is 2020, there’s a possibility it could come in 2021 instead.
