Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Gets Delayed Indefinitely
The ambitious Lego game is no longer coming in spring 2021.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been delayed indefinitely after previously being scheduled for a Spring 2021 launch. According to studio TT Games, the development team needs more time in order to for the game to live up to expectations. Those are certainly high, as the game bundles nine films' worth of content into a single package.
As such, it won't release this spring as previously scheduled. "All of us at TT Games are working hard to Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga the biggest and best Lego game, but we're going to need more time to do it," the developer said. The studio also thanked fans for their continued patience. The game was originally announced and shown off back at E3 2019, so it has been a very long time coming.

The Skywalker Saga is unlike any Lego Star Wars game that came before it, and it's truly a massive game, featuring nearly 500 Star Wars characters.
The game allows players to start the game at any point in the Saga, so you can skip the prequels or even jump right into The Last Jedi if you want to. It will also include space combat missions, and the whole game is brand-new, so don't expect to retread missions from previous Lego Star Wars games.
Whenever it's ready, The Skywalker Saga will release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
