Monolith Productions revealed Middle-earth: Shadow of War earlier this year. The game was originally set for an August release, however, things have changed. The studio and WBIE are confirming the game will no longer debut in August. Instead, Shadow of War will make its debut this coming October.
Moving from its Aug. 22 release date, Middle-earth: Shadow of War will now arrive on Oct. 10. Monolith Productions made the announcement via company forums. The studio says they are “committed to delivering the highest quality experience” possible.
“In order to do this, we have made the difficult decision to move our launch date to ensure that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will deliver on that promise.We understand that it might be disappointing to have to wait a little longer for the release and are sorry for the delay, but we are working hard to make an amazing game,” Monolith said.
Gamers who are looking forward to hearing more about the new game will not have to wait long. Monolith confirmed an apparent appearance for Shadow of War at E3 2017. “We’re excited to show more at E3,” Monolith stated.
WBIE and Microsoft are partnering up for Shadow of War on Xbox One and Project Scorpio. It is fair to expect some sort of gameplay demo of Shadow of War during Microsoft’s E3 2017 press briefing. Among the games we know about now, this is one that will very likely appear. I expect the demo to be of the game running on Scorpio.
Microsoft’s E3 2017 briefing will be a very important one. Many expect them to reveal a release date for their upcoming system, Project Scorpio. The same is true for how much the system will cost. We’ll keep you updated on news that surfaces from the show a week from this Sunday.
Microsoft’s E3 briefing will take place on Sunday, June 11 at 2 p.m. PT. WBIE’s Middle-earth: Shadow of War will release this coming Oct. 10. The game will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, PS4 Pro, Project Scorpio and PC. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Shadow of War.
