Based on J.R.R Tolkien’s Middle-earth universe, the coming title is bound to get many dedicated fans of the franchise in a frenzy. The untitled game is currently still in early development.

The Lord of the Rings IP is home to so many remarkable stories, and no entity is better equipped than the team at Wētā Workshop to create a distinctive, new Middle-earth gaming experience.”Head of Private Division Michael Worosz
