New Lord of the Rings game coming from Private Division, Weta


A new Lord of the Rings video game is on the way from Private Division, as thanks to a new collaboration with Weta Workshop.

Beyond that, not much else is known about the title.

“We are thrilled to partner with Weta Workshop to publish a game set in such an extraordinary and celebrated universe,” said Private Division head Michael Worosz. “The Lord of the Rings IP is home to so many remarkable stories, and no entity is better equipped than the team at Weta Workshop to create a distinctive, new Middle-earth gaming experience.”

Weta Workshop created the special effects in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films; the studio was purchased by Unity last year.

We’ll have more on this new Lord of the Rings game as it becomes available.
