The Lord of the Rings ring of power

Private Division and Weta Workshop are working on a new game that is set in the Middle-earth universe

Private Division has announced a partnership with Weta Workshop for a brand new The Lord of the Rings game. This game is in a very early development stage, and we don’t know yet for which platforms it will release (we can assume it will hit all major platforms, including the PC).

Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer at Take-Two Interactive and Head of Private Division said:

“We are thrilled to partner with Weta Workshop to publish a game set in such an extraordinary and celebrated universe. The Lord of the Rings IP is home to so many remarkable stories, and no entity is better equipped than the team at Weta Workshop to create a distinctive, new Middle-earth gaming experience.”

Amie Wolken, Head of Interactive at Weta Workshop, added:

“It’s a privilege to create a new game set in Middle-earth, especially one that’s so different from what fans have played previously. As fans ourselves, we’re excited for gamers to explore Middle-earth in a way they never have before, and introduce new fans to the magic of The Lord of the Rings.”

Take-Two plans to launch this LOTR game during its Fiscal Year 2024.
