Well, this sucks: TT Games announced today that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will not be released in Spring 2021 as planned. It has been delayed. Again. And this time we don’t have a new release date or window.

“All of us at TT Games are working hard to make Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga the biggest and best -ever Lego game — but we’re going to need more time to do it,” TT Games wrote in a tweet today. “We won’t be able to make our intended Spring release date, but will provide updated launch timing as soon as possible.”

First revealed back in June 2019, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will retell the complete Star Wars saga, from Phantom Menace to The Rise of Skywalker, in LEGO form. It will contain basically every character you can imagine from the popular sci-fi universe, including my personal favourite Yaddle.

Finally, You Cowards Put Yaddle In A Star Wars Game Trailer

And so, nearly two years after I first lamented the absence of the great Yaddle from ALL the Star Wars games, my suffering has ended. Finally, those cowards have released the first in-game footage of Yaddle from 2021’s LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

Since being announced it’s been delayed once already and now a second time. While I understand video games are hard to make and even harder now during the era of covid-19, I’m still very sad about this delay. I want to play as Yaddle! I want to play through (most) of the Star Wars films!

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will (eventually) release on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

  • Look, I can accept that Covid made it difficult for a lot of industries last year, buuuuuut…they’ve had 12 months to adjust to working from home solutions. And most businesses and industries HAVE adjusted, and in a lot of cases seen an increase in output. I know at my work, we saw an increase in work output for those affected by work from home.

    We’re talking about games makers here, who should be some of the most techy savvy and adaptable of any business, but they’re all like ‘naaah, covid delays, innit’.

    To be fair, these guys aren’t labeling the delay on covid specifically this time, but still. Learn how to manage a project, guys. It seems like none of these developers can actually create a realistic plan when creating new games, as if the initial release dates are just darts on a calendar.

    Cyberpunk’s STILL not finished, FFS.
