Update: Wow, that didn't take long, did it? A mere 15 minutes after penning the rumour (which you can still read below), the 5th April 2022 release date for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been confirmed. You can also check out a new gameplay video, which we've embedded above.

Original Story: It feels like we've been waiting on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga for an age, but the anticipated action platformer is supposed to be building a blocky bridge to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 this year. And while it's not official yet, it does look like the intergalactic adventure is targeting an April 2022 release date.

The 5th April, to be more specific. This date was first leaked through the Microsoft Store (that old classic!), and now it seems to have been corroborated by UK retailer GAME. Earlier today, the company tweeted that same date before swiftly deleting the evidence — but not before screenshots were taken.

If GAME''s got pre-order marketing ready to rock, then it's possible (perhaps even likely) that an official announcement is just around the corner. Are you excited to finally get your hands on The Skywalker Saga? Remember the entire Star Wars story in the comments section below.
