Lord of the Rings

A new Lord of the Rings video game is in work in partnership with Weta Workshop, the studio behind the visual creation of Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s epic fantasy movie.

The news came from Private Division’s Twitter, the publisher behind games including The Outer World, Hades, and OlliOlli World. They shared that it would be publishing “a new game set in the literary Middle-Earth universe of J.R.R Tolkein.”

Weta Workshop launched a game development studio in 2014, and last year it was announced that their team was working on a game relating to a significant IP, it seems like this epic new Lord of the Rings game is that game.

There are not many details about the game Middle-Earth Enterprises, which controls the rights to the franchise and has “licensed the literary works of the series, giving Weta Workshop with the broadest creative license to interpret the underlying lore of the books,” rather than the movies or any other type of adaptation.

It’s also disclosed that “this title is early in development,” and “expected” to come out in 2024.
