New World Developer Will Create A New Lord Of The Rings MMO, Amazon Games Announces

Amazon Games has announced a new Lord Of The Rings project in the works, an MMO being made for both PC and consoles, in collaboration with Embracer Group.

It’ll be Amazon Games Orange County, the same team behind popular title New World, leading the development on this new title, which according to a statement from Amazon Games, is still “in early stages of production.”

Amazon Games will also publish this new title. “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.” said Christoph Harmann, vice president at Amazon Games.

“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.”

For Amazon Games, this is its second crack at trying to make a Lord Of The Rings MMO, as it had announced all the way back in 2019 that it would be doing the same with Althon Games.

Of course that was before the pandemic hit, and a slew of changes within Amazon Games. It’ll be interesting to see how this new project turns out, especially considering the success of New World.
