LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Has Been Delayed Indefinitely

Developer TT Games has announced LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be delayed, missing its spring 2021 release window.

TT Games announced the push via a tweet earlier today. The developer cited a desire to make The Skywalker Saga the “biggest and best-ever” game in the LEGO series as the driving force behind the delay.

Announced in 2019, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga retells the stories of the nine numbered Star Wars films through a humorous lens. While the first seven movies have received the LEGO treatment, The Skywalker Saga includes revamped gameplay and voice acting to differentiate it from past entries. 

A trailer at Gamescom 2020 Opening Night Live previously announced the release window as spring 2021. TT Games did not give a new release window but stated it would reveal launch details as soon as they could.

The past year has been a difficult one for developers, perhaps the most obvious reason being the COVID-19 pandemic. A 2020 GDC Survey of nearly 2,500 developers revealed about one-third of developers have had their games delayed due to the pandemic.

According to the survey, adjusting to a remote work environment was rough for some studios. Even studios that were well-adjusted to remote work saw some titles’ schedules thrown off due to partner studios not being prepared to work remotely.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga being delayed is the latest in a series of high-profile video-game delays. Housemarque’s PlayStation 5 exclusive Returnal was previously pushed back a month for polishing. WB Games Montréal’s Gotham Knights was delayed from the 2021 release window displayed in its announcement trailer. Halo Infinite was supposed to launch alongside the Xbox Series X/S last November but was put on the shelf for nearly a full year following a controversial gameplay reveal.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be released at a later date for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC on Steam. Stay tuned for more updates on this title as they become available.

    Game companies approach these things in the worst possible way. Just stop announcing release dates and don’t start generating hype until you’re closer to release. It’s not rocket science, it’s common sense and that makes you wonder how dumb the people making these decisions are.
