Amazon and Leyou in works on developing a new MMORPG based on Lord of the Rings. It will be based on the Literary work of The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. They have yet to release any kind of dates for the game, but hopefully we will hear things soon!
“We’re committed to bringing customers games of the highest quality, both with our own original IP as well as beloved cultural pillars like The Lord of the Rings,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Game Studios. “Tolkien’s Middle-earth is one of the richest fictional worlds in history, and it gives our team of experienced MMO developers — from the same studio developing New World — tremendous opportunity to play and create. We have a strong leadership team in place to helm this new project, and we’re actively growing our team to help build this incredible experience.”
