Amazon Games Announces Upcoming The Lord of the Rings MMO For PC and Consoles

Amazon Games has announced its new partnership with Middle-earth Enterprises to develop a new untitled MMO based on the The Lord of the Rings series. The game will be developed by New World studio Amazon Games Orange County and will launch for consoles and PC worldwide. The game is still in early production and will feature stories from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Amazon Games vice president Christoph Hartmann commented on the news, saying:

“We’re committed to bringing players high-quality games, whether through original IPs or long-beloved ones like The Lord of the Rings. 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.”


Embracer Freemode CEO Lee Guinchard added:

“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.

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.”
