Last year’s video game event was basically the last time we had any concrete update on the long-awaited title – beyond a second, indefinite delay in April – and given it skipped E3, most of us had pinned our hopes on Gamescom for more news.
However, the organisers behind the 2021 convention have now confirmed a longlist of participants, including Electronic Arts, Activision and Ubisoft – but Warner Bros. Games, publisher of TT Games’ LEGO titles, isn’t among them.
That’s not necessarily an outright confirmation that we won’t see LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga at Gamescom, which takes place from August 25 to 27. The game could still show up as part of Xbox’s panel, or Warner Bros. Games or TT Games could be added to the list between now and then.
At the moment, though, it’s business as usual – which is to say, total radio silence – from the developers and publishers behind the hugely-anticipated saga-spanning sequel. We’ll keep you posted.
- I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
