Description: Daedalic, the German studio known as a developer for Deponia and Blackguards and as a publisher for, recently snatched a multi-game deal with the Tolkien Estate to make games based on the Lord of the Rings novels, the first of which will be focused on Gollum.

In a featured article published on the latest EDGE magazine (February 2020, issue 341), a few Daedalic revealed plenty of juicy details on the Gollum game. They also shared brief comments on the big topic of the industry: Microsoft's and Sony's next-generation consoles.

Daedalic CEO Carsten Fichtelmann said:

I think Microsoft is doing some things better than they did in the past. And the PS5 will be huge.

Daedalic Game Designer Martin Wilkes went a little more in-depth with his comment, explaining how the specs of the Xbox Series X console will positively influence level design for instance.

I’ve only heard rumours about the [Xbox Series X] specs, and it’s huge – very fast Flash memory. Which excites me, of course, but I don’t think that’s relevant to this project, because we’re aiming for PC as well. Especially for level designers, though, that’s a dream come true, because we don’t have to concern ourselves with streaming corridors any more. I think that’s sometimes really painful – to squeeze down these otherwise beautiful, stunning environments because we need another corridor here.
