Weta Workshop, which worked on Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings film trilogy, is working on a new computer game based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth setting. There isn’t much information about this new game yet, but it seems like Weta may have a big pool of content to draw from. According to a news release, “Middle-earth Enterprises has licensed the literary works of the series, giving Wt Workshop with the fullest creative liberty to interpret the underlying mythology of the novels.”
In the future release, Weta’s game division will collaborate with Take-Two publishing label Private Division. There is no set release date, although the game is scheduled to arrive during Take-fiscal Two’s year 2024, which spans from April 2023 to March 2024.
This new game joins a number of previous Lord of the Rings adaptations in the works. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power TV series from Amazon is almost around the horizon, however, the new LOTR video game featuring Gollum will no longer be released with the program due to a recent delay. In addition, EA has begun testing The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth, a free-to-play LOTR mobile game.
