Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga out this spring after troubled development
The oft-delayed and much-anticipated Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is almost upon us, and the latest trailer reveals the release date: April 5th, 2022.
The Skywalker Saga adapts all the 9 main series movies and features an all-new third-person action design complete with a combo-based combat system, and a mumble mode that replaces the voice acting with, well, mumbling.
- Biggest Lego Star Wars game to date
- Billy Dee Williams voices Lando Calrissian
- Explore locations from all 9 movies in any order
- New game engine and approach to design
Dev crunch: Development has not been a completely smooth ride, and developers at TT Games claim that there was substantial pressure to work "voluntary" overtime which amounted to “very soft-spoken blackmail.”
Production: The Skywalker Saga was delayed three times, and apparently suffered high staff turnover and low morale, while poor management saw the project run low on resources. We've reached out to TT Games and Warner Bros for comment on the report but didn't hear anything back by the time of publishing.
