In 2019, Amazon announced that it was working on a new The Lord of the Rings MMORPG. However, Bloomberg reported yesterday that this game has been officially cancelled.
According to an Amazon spokesperson, the company had been unable to secure terms to proceed with this title at this time. Thus, the team that was working on it will now focus on other projects.
Amazon’s spokesperson also said that they love the Lord of the Rings IP, and are disappointed that they won’t be bringing this game to customers.
And that is that.
To be honest, I had completely forgotten this TLOTR MMORPG. After all, we didn’t hear anything about it since its initial announcement in 2019.
So, the only official The Lord of The Rings game that is currently under development is Gollum.
