"That new Lord of the Rings MMORPG is still happening, now with Amazon’s New World team on board"


Recommended Posts



Looks like Leyou is content with holding the rights and letting Amazon drive the bus.


Amazon said, “We aspire to make a game that is ‘different at a glance’ from The Lord of the Rings games and media that came before us.”

Amazon is collaborating with China’s Leyou for the game, having put together a new team with “veteran developers who have worked on Everquest, Destiny, PlanetSide, World of Warcraft, Defiance, RIFT, and other popular MMOs.”


I'm wondering who and how many at SSG are eyeing this for employment.

I wouldn't want Amazon near the LOTR canon and I'm glad this MMO has been cancelled.

Say what you will about Turbine and SSG's project management of LOTRO through the years, but they at least aspire to be faithful to the game's world and setting. Amazon makes glossy, soulless, drab trash. New World is looking to flounder completely, and most of its other projects have turned sour.
