    Last September, we learned that an MMORPG based on the Lord of the Rings franchise was revealed to be in the works over at Athlon Games, a subsidiary of Leyou Technologies. While any involvement from other studios was undisclosed at that time, Amazon Game Studios revealed today that they are leading the development of the still unnamed MMORPG based on Lord of the Rings.

    This partnership does make sense as Amazon is developing a Lord of the Rings TV show, though the game is said to be disconnected. The team that is working on the MMORPG, which is also said to be free-to-play, is the same one currently creating New World over at Amazon. This crew apparently consists of developers that have worked on titles like World of Warcraft, Destiny, Planetside, and Everquest, and this new game giving them the “tremendous opportunity to play and create” according to Christoph Hartmann, VP of Amazon Game Studios.
