Amazon Working on Another MMO That They’ll Probably Abandon

Amazon Games alongside Embracer Group and Middle-earth Enterprises has announced that they are developing new Lord of The Rings-themed MMO.


Amazon already has both Lost Ark and New World of which I have played one of the two but I can’t remember which and thought it was crap. Amazon though seemed to share the same opinion as me because both of the games appear to have been “abandoned” by the developer and have decided if you don’t get it right the first two times, try a third. The upcoming open-world MMO adventure game to be set in Middle-earth from The Lord of The Rings is currently in the early stages of production.

What Amazon Games Had To Say

“We’re committed to bringing players high-quality games, whether through original IPs or long-beloved ones like The Lord of the Rings,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. “Bringing players a fresh take on The Lord of the Rings has long been an aspiration for our team, and we’re honored and grateful that Middle-earth Enterprises is entrusting us with this iconic world. We’re also pleased to be expanding our relationship with Embracer Group following our Tomb Raider deal last year, as they’ve proven to be excellent collaborators.”

“The world of Middle-earth continues to prove an endlessly fertile ground for creators, and Amazon Games has a passion for building immersive, compelling worlds and publishing games for a global audience,” said Lee Guinchard, CEO of Freemode. “We have the clear ambition to create the highest-quality entertainment products for this IP, whether we utilize internal resources or team up with the best industry partners that complement our capabilities. We’re taking every care to deliver an MMO which will do justice to the expansive Middle-earth universe and delight players around the world.”

When Could We See The Game?

The game currently features no launch date or any details other than the fact that it will be set in Middle-Earth and will be available on PC and Consoles. Maybe Amazon could get this right with such a large IP as LOTR providing them plenty of creative room to make an interesting game unfortunately, I’m a sinner and have not seen LOTR or the Hobbit so I won’t be one to judge.

Do you think Amazon can pull this off? let us know in the comments.
