More evidence LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is nearly ready to launch

Evidence is starting to mount that Warner Bros. is finally about to announce a release date for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

We’ve been waiting for a single shred of news on the hugely-anticipated video game since TT Games announced its indefinite delay back in April, but nothing has yet come through official PR channels. (Click here for a thorough charting of the timeline so far, from the game’s original announcement at E3 2019 to its absence at E3 2021.)

Instead, we’re left to piece together clues from the tiny updates that trickle through external sources. And all recent news points to just one thing: we’re going to learn the release date for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga very, very soon.

For instance, several TT Games staff – including high-profile names like Arthur Parsons – have left the studio over the past few months, suggesting their work on the game is already complete. (It could also mean the title is in dire straits, but developer Alex Harkin recently sought to reassure fans by tweeting that it’s ‘in safe hands’.)

Warner Bros. has also already begun hiring staff for its next LEGO title, which will apparently have a focus on ‘networked content’ and ‘networked gameplay’. If LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is still way off completion, wouldn’t the publisher (and developer TT Games) be keen to pour most of its resources into getting it finished, given it’s already been delayed twice?

Finally, we’ve seen a wave of updates to the game’s Steam page over the past couple of weeks, including the addition of support for multiple languages and – most recently – a change to its banner image. These are very minor alterations, but the fact they’re happening at all is a strong indication that Warner Bros. is preparing to make some kind of announcement about the game.

Time will tell whether any of this evidence materialises in an actual, bona fide update from Warner Bros. and TT Games regarding the status of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. For now, though, things are looking a little bit more hopeful than they did even a month ago.

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. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
