Update (14:03 GMT): Well, that was quick. It has now been confirmed that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will indeed launch on 5th April.

A new extended gameplay trailer has been released (see above), confirming the date and showing fans what to expect when it launches.

Original Article (Thu 20th Jan, 2022 13:55 GMT): It looks like we could well be on the brink of receiving a confirmed release date for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and it seems fans won't have much longer to wait.

Yesterday, rumours surrounding the game's launch hit the headlines after reliable Microsoft Store leaker Aggiornamenti Lumia hinted towards a 5th April release date. Of course, the last official news we received on the game's release date confirmed a spring 2022 launch, so an April release certainly sounds plausible.

But today, a now-deleted tweet from reputable UK gaming store GAME has added even more weight to that April date. The tweet, which can be seen in the screenshot below, once again mentions that 5th April date alongside information on a GAME-exclusive pre-order bundle.
