A new computer game focusing on Gollum is set to be released in 2021.
German developer Daedalic Entertainmentjust gained worldwide licensing rights for The Lord of the Rings and it’s working on a new game that focuses on everyone’s favourite Hobbit-turned-bad.
According to the company, the game will be released on PC and “all relevant console platforms at that time.” It will remain true to the Tolkien’s source material while also exploring new events and details about Gollum, the company said.
“The Lord of the Rings is one of the most epic and renowned stories of all time – it’s an honour for us to have the opportunity to work on our own contribution to this universe,” said Carsten Fichtelmann, CEO and Co-founder of Daedalic Entertainment.
“In Gollum, players will assume the role of one of the most iconic characters in Middle-earth. We tell Gollum’s story from a perspective never seen before, in any storytelling medium, all the while staying true to the legendary books of J.R.R. Tolkien.”
No word on whether Andy Serkis is involved.
