Daedalic Entertainment seems to be working on not one, but several games in the Lord Of The Rings universe.
This week we saw how another new game from 2023 fell before the critics and the players, and was described as the worst game so far of the year, yes… We still have the bad taste in our mouths that it left us The Lord Of The Rings: Gollumand although many would prefer to leave everything in the past, it seems that the studio responsible for the game has another idea about it.
Daedalic Entertainment has confirmed that he does not intend to give up cWith the universe of JRR Tolkien and Middle-earth, and they have stated that they are in fact still working on a project for 2024 based on The Lord Of The Rings as well, and not only that, but there are several Middle-earth projects currently in development at the studio, as reported by Insider Gaming.
Interestingly, although The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum was a really bad launch, the German ministry of economic affairs has subsidized it Two millions of euros additions to the study to continue its operations.
I don’t want to be pessimistic, and there are cases where the first games from a studio aren’t very good, and then they release much more solid installments, but really Daedalic Entertainment he will have to do a lot to redeem himself with the next installmentsand recover the good faith of the fans.
I look forward to your next project, codenamed “It’s Magic” look to go much deeper into its mechanics, since one of Gollum’s most criticized points was just how superficial its mechanics were, but I trust the possibility that they have learned their lesson, and start working on their weaknesses before their next delivery.
