According to industry analyst MauroNL, the listing states the long-awaited video game will arrive in the second quarter of 2021. That puts the release date somewhere between April 1 and June 30. We already know that TT Games’ latest saga-spanning title is launching in spring, so we can rule out June.
Pending any further delays, that suggests LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will launch in either April or May, ruling out a March release. But given we’ve heard nothing on the release date since August last year, and details on the game are few and far between, a March launch did seem pretty unlikely anyway.
At this point, the date that would make most sense is May 4 – not only for its obvious Star Wars link, but also because it’s a Tuesday, which is when most video games typically launch in the US. That might mean we see a release date of May 7 in the UK, where games usually launch on Fridays, but hopefully Warner Bros. will aim for a simultaneous worldwide debut whatever happens.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to feature 800 characters, 23 planets and 28 locations at launch, but will apparently lack support for several next-gen features.
