Developers Athlon Games have announced they are working on a Lord Of The Rings MMO. Using the LOTR IP to produce a new free to play MMO game. The studio is still relatively new but is partnered with Middle-earth Enterprises. The company currently holding the Lord Of The Rings IP.
The Lord Of The Rings MMO game is currently in the early stages of development. With no official name announced just yet. However, it has been officially announced by Athlon Games. The setting will, of course, be in the world of Middle-earth. But, long before the events of the Lord Of The Rings tv series.
A new Lord Of The Rings setting.
A huge plus to the game’s development is moving away from the usual LOTR setting. While we will miss our beloved Bilbo and friends. It gives Athlon Games and Middle-earth a chance to portray a fresh new-feeling world. Showing never before seen landscapes, characters, and stories. Which may be a breath of fresh air to those who have become accustomed to the usual plot. With the Lord Of The Rings having amassed six Hollywood movies.
There’s already the LOTRO, why another MMO?
So where is this coming from? We already have a Lord Of The Rings MMO. Which is still going strong for over 10 years now. The last Hobbit movie was also released four years ago. Shadow of Mordor may be a big reason to Athlon Games sudden interest in the Lord Of The Rings IP. Shadow of Mordor and its sequel, Shadow of War are both huge successes. Despite its controversy over in-game purchases. These were however scrapped and a definitive edition with DLC was released.
Athlon Games is very new to the scene, as it was only launched May 2018 by Leyou. The parent company Leyou, however, has a long running of successful games in the industry. Including Warframe, Wolfenstein and Splash Damage.
