Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Delayed

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has now missed its initial release date, but TT Games has commented, saying, “We’re going to need more time to do it. [We] will provide updated launch timing as soon as possible.”

For context, this brand new Lego Star Wars is a collection of all nine films, made from the ground-up: it isn’t a remake. There’s also an emphasis on sections of the films that weren’t tapped into with the prior games, whether that’s the prequel trilogy, original trilogy, or The Force Awakens.

It’s also the most open Lego game to date, allowing for players to explore the galaxy and complete the story in any order you see fit with a brand new, fully-controllable, over-the-shoulder camera, with revamped lightsaber fights and cover shooting.

It’s also set to feature 800 unique characters with 300 that are playable. It’s perhaps the most ambitious Lego game to date, and with COVID-19 still being a problem across the globe, pushing many into work-at-home conditions, it’s no surprise then that the title is in need of more time to get ready for launch. That being said, TT has opted to stay vague with a release date, to avoid any potential Cyberpunk 2077 fiascos.

It will be available on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series, although it won’t sport next-gen features such as haptic feedback, ray tracing, and 3D audio. With the pandemic, perhaps TT Games will finally open up the door to online co-op as opposed to exclusive split-screen couch co-op, but for now, there’s no word on that avenue.

Many games are likely to be delayed in 2021 with the current conditions that the world is in, so this kind of announcement is to be expected from plenty of developers.
