Amazon’s gaming division announced that game development The lord of the rings will not last. Recall that the game was announced in 2019. The work on the project was carried out jointly with the Leyou company. According to the publication Bloomberg, then in December it was bought by the Chinese corporation Tencent. After that, disputes began between Amazon and Tencent, which led to the end of development. Information about this came from anonymous sources who could not publicly disclose such a topic. Meanwhile on the site Amazon Games news of the development of The Lord of the Rings removed.
Two years after the start of development, Amazon’s gaming division has shifted to work on “other projects.” It’s worth recalling that Amazon hasn’t released a single game since 2014. Several of the projects have been canceled, and New World has been postponed several times.
Daedalic is currently working on The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. This is an AA project where we will hide in the shadows behind Gollum. We got some gameplay last time.
