LEGO Star Wars is probably one of the most celebrated game franchises when it comes to the SW fandom, and a reboot was set to come out this spring that would cover all the stories from The Phantom Menace to The Rise of Skywalker. The game was originally set to come out last year, but was pushed to the Spring of 2021. Too bad for fans though, because it looks like the game will be delayed once again.
As announced by LEGO game developers TT Games, they would be delaying LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. No official release date has been announced, but we do know that the game won’t be releasing this Spring. Here’s the post:

While there are some people who are definitely not pleased with the development, the botched launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has taught gamers a very harsh lesson—a finished game that comes out late is better than an unfinished game that comes out on time. While Star Wars fans have been waiting a while for The Skywalker Saga, it would have been a huge waste to get it on the intended release date only to realize it wasn’t completed.
As of now, TT Games hasn’t given us any kind of release window, but fans have their fingers crossed that it will come out within the year. After hopes that the game would release alongside The Rise of Skywalker back in 2019, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga sure is taking its time. Let’s just hope the studio isn’t overworking the developers to make this game happen.
No release date has been announced for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
