LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was present at Gamescom: Opening Night Live 2021 as previously promised with a new release window. Not only was a new trailer shown, but we received confirmation that the title will now ship in Spring 2022.

Here’s the video in full:

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will appear at Gamescom: Opening Night Live with a world premiere, host Geoff Keighley has announced.

Gamescom: Opening Night Live will take place on August 25. The show starts at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM in the UK / 8 PM in Europe.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was last talked about this past April when the game was delayed to an unspecified date. The game has been pushed back multiple times, and was originally planned for 2020.

When LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was first announced, it was targeted for a 2020 launch. Warner Bros. and TT Games would later push things back to Spring 2021.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is now seeing a second delay, with TT confirming that the title won’t be making it out this spring. A new release window was not provided.

A statement from TT reads:

A few new LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga tidbits have surfaced from this month’s issue of OPM. The magazine details the amount of playable characters, areas, and more.

Previously, we heard that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga would include close to 500 unique characters. It seems that this amount has increased over the past year.

Here’s the full roundup of tidbits:

It was announced last week that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is seeing a rather significant delay. Rather than launching this year, the game is releasing in Spring 2021 instead.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be distributed in two forms. Fans will be able to purchase a standard copy or the newly-revealed Deluxe Edition. With the Deluxe Edition, you’ll be getting six DLC packs in a Character Collection bundle: The Mandalorian Pack 1, The Madalorian Pack 2, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Classic Characters, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Star Wars: The Bad Batch. Luke Skywalker is also featured with a LEGO minifigure.

You can pre-order LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Deluxe Edition on Amazon, Best Buy, or GameStop.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will no longer ship this year as originally planned. Today, Warner Bros. and TT Games announced that the title has slipped back to Spring 2021.

While that news will come as a disappointment to fans, the game’s debut gameplay trailer was published as well. We’ve included the video below.

We haven’t seen much of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga since it was unveiled at E3 2019 last June. Fortunately though, we’re due for a proper look very soon.

It’s been announced that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be featured during Gamescom Opening Night Live tomorrow. First gameplay will be shown at the event.

Host Geoff Keighley shared the news on Twitter:

Best Buy has revealed a pre-order bonus for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. By reserving the game, you’ll receive a special steelbook. We have a look at the design above.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga launches on Switch later in 2020. Though not official announced, it could be arriving on October 20.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga still appears to be several months away, though we may have an actual release date. In a news show shared on the official Star Wars YouTube page, it was stated that the game will be launching on October 20. Warner Bros. Interactive has yet to announce that date, but it does sound plausible given that it falls on a Tuesday.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was first announced at E3 2019. News has slowly dripped out since then, including the piece of art above that was shared this week. Developer TT Games looks to be taking its time with this one and the project is even running on a new engine, which should only mean good things for fans of both LEGO and Star Wars.
