Lord of the Rings: Gollum studio issues an apology for the game on Twitter
Hot games come and go, but it’s strange that the developers themselves have to apologize the same week the game launches. That’s what happened on Friday when Daedalic Entertainment, the developer behind Lord of the Rings: Gollumposted a statement on Twitter apologizing for the game’s many technical issues.
“We would like to sincerely apologize for the bad experience many of you had with Lord of the Rings: Gollum when it is released,” the statement read. “We acknowledge and deeply regret that the game did not live up to the expectations we set for ourselves or for our dedicated community. Please accept our sincere apologies for any disappointment this may have caused.”
The statement goes on to emphasize how much the studio appreciates the game’s player feedback before promising upcoming patches will “allow you to enjoy the game to its fullest potential.” (Studio also released day one patch for Gollum.) It’s a very strange saying, but at least the sentiment behind it seems genuine.
Lord of the Rings: Gollum available to play on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
