Amazon Games Orange County Developing Lord of the Rings MMO Inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s Works

Lord of the Rings

Amazon Games has announced plans to develop a new multiplayer online game inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Amazon Games Orange County, the firm behind the top title MMORPG New World, will develop the project in-house. The game will feature popular storylines from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings novels.

The upcoming MMO is a fresh start for Amazon. You should remember it announced and canceled plans for a Lord of the Rings MMO in 2019 and 2021. The previous project was canceled due to issues arising from its acquisition by Tencent. After the success of New World, Amazon is now ready to try again.

Amazon’s another attempt: Lord of the Rings MMO

Amazon Games and Embracer Group’s Middle-earth Enterprises have reached a deal. The latter will allow Amazon to distribute the game to the global market for both PC and consoles. While specific platforms have yet to be announced, the game will be tailored to the Lord of the Rings franchise and will attempt to portray the ideals and fun found in the novels.

The game is still in the early stages of development, and no release date has been announced. With Amazon Games working on eight other projects, it may be some time before more information is released. Fans of the brand are awaiting the new MMO, hoping for a smoother debut than previous attempts.

Lord of the Rings

Despite the fact that The Lord of the Rings Online has been live since 2007, Amazon Games VP Christoph Hartmann expects people to migrate to their new MMO. He likened the transition from the older game to Amazon’s MMO to the transition from black and white to color films, highlighting the technological advances and the different experiences the new game will offer. Standing Stone, the developers of The Lord of the Rings Online, have assured their dedicated player base that they have no plans to leave and will continue to serve the community.

The name of Amazon’s MMO has not yet been announced. So The Lord of the Rings Online will continue to lead the way until the new game is released. The success and reception of Amazon’s MMO will determine whether it can surpass the long-standing popularity of The Lord of the Rings Online.
