When one of the most important companies on the planet puts the machinery to work, you know that something great is going to happen. That is why the expectations behind Amazon’s plans are really high, due to its business power.
However, it appears that the video game division is suffering from certain problems. As reported Bloomberg
Announced last 2019, the work has been developed by Amazon Game Studios together with the Chinese studio Leyou, which was bought by Tencent the last December. According to the sources consulted by the media, this detail has been the origin of the end of the game
The contractual differences between the two parties have led to this ending, as revealed by an Amazon representative consulted by Bloomberg. “We have not been able to secure the terms to continue with this title at this time “, clarifies this member of the company.
“We love the intellectual property of The Lord of the Rings and we are disappointed not to bring this game to our customers,” said the spokesperson in a statement to Jason Schreier.
In this way, the MMO based on the novels of JRR Tolkien join the list of cancellations of Amazon, along with Breakaway Y Crucible. New World, his other great project, was delayed until August, at which time the final landing of the work is expected.
