Ah, to remember the heady days when Electronic Arts
was content to flood the world with Lord of the Rings
titles. It seems that EA isn't quite ready to let its very lucrative license go by the wayside, as newly acquired
studio Pandemic (Mercenaries 2
) is working on a new title set in Middle Earth
. And that's about it, really. The news was revealed in a recent analyst meeting (the same one that also seemingly unearthed plans for a new KOTOR title
). The only thing known about the title is that EA plans to release it in their fiscal 2009, which runs April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009. Could it be the resurrection of The White Council
? Time will tell (and so will we, once we find out).
