We’ll see 40 games from more than 30 different video game companies in the spring showcase on March 25, including Team 17, SEGA, EA and, crucially, Warner Bros. – the publisher of TT Games’ previous LEGO titles, and the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
That’s not direct confirmation that the eagerly-anticipated sequel will feature in the digital event, of course, but it feels like an obvious platform for Warner Bros. to finally give us another shred of info on the game – including its exact release date, which is still pencilled in for spring 2021.
Meteorologically speaking, we’re already in spring in the northern hemisphere, which runs from March 1 until May 31. That doesn’t give the publisher much time to market and launch LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga if it’s going to meet its planned release window, so we’re bound to hear something soon.
GamesRadar’s showcase is also a cross-platform event, and TT Games’ latest title is heading to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PC, so it makes sense that we’d hear more about the game at an event that wasn’t exclusive to a single platform (like Nintendo’s Direct or Sony’s State of Play).
Of course, waiting until March 25 would create an even smaller window for Warner Bros. to market and release the game in spring, so fingers crossed we hear something before then. But if not, the Future Games Show may be our best hope yet for learning more about LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
You’ll be able to tune into the show from 9:45pm UK time on March 25 at GamesRadar’s YouTube channel.
