Despite its popularity, the Lord of The Rings franchise is lacking in the games industry. As such, the fandom heavily anticipates each new installment in the franchise.
The recently released Lord of The Rings: Gollum was developed by Daedalic Entertainment. While many looked forward to the game, it failed to meet expectations. However, Daedalic Entertainment is not done with The Lord Of The Rings franchise.
According to a database of projects receiving a German subsidy, the developer has already begun working on a new Lord of The Rings game.
Why it matters: Daedalic Entertainment’s recent release was plagued with bugs and glitches. It also ran poorly on PC and became the worst-reviewed game of 2023. Therefore, many have been shocked that the studio is already working on a new game.
There is not much information about this game, but it has a release window of August 2024 and will be Daedalic Entertainment’s second Lord Of The Rings game.
The description also confirms that it will be an action-adventure title featuring a character that tries to influence the world around him. However, the identity of this character is unknown.
A new game would allow Deadalic Entertainment to take a fresh approach and redeem themselves after the poor reception of their latest release. The studio could also apply the lessons learned from the game to avoid repeating similar errors in the future.
Popular IPs like Harry Potter have recently found incredible success in the gaming industry. The Lord of The Rings franchise has a similar opportunity, and Deadalic Entertainment could use its great stories and characters for a successful gaming release.
