LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga release date has been pushed back and will no longer launch in Spring 2021 as originally intended.
Developer TT Games announced the delay on Twitter earlier today (April 2) leaving the eagerly anticipated next LEGO game now in limbo without a release date or release window.
The full announcement from the team reads:
“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,” the announcement from TT Games said. We won’t be able to make our intended Spring release date, but will provide updated launch timing as soon as possible.”
For LEGO and Star Wars fans this is clearly not ideal news, but it's equally not the most surprising.
Months have passed without so much of a peep from the game and with spring, well, sprung, it seemed fanciful that the game would still hit its intended Spring launch window.
The game is also a massive undertaking, as it features 300 characters and every Star Wars movie in one big open-world game.
TT Games originally planned to launch the game back in October 2020, so this new delay doesn't exactly give us much much hope that we'll see the game anytime soon.
Fingers crossed it can at least make it out before the end of 2021 and not slip into 2022 like so many others games this year.
So far this year Hogwarts Legacy, Gran Turismo 7, Need for Speed and Gotham Knights have all been delayed into 2022.
