This week Warner Brothers and Monolith, the developers of Middle-earth revealed that the anticipated sequel to the game has been delayed.

That game is Middle-earth: Shadow of War, which has been delayed worldwide until October 10th, 2017, instead of the original August release date.

They explained more with the following:

Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands gameplay in every dimension, including the massive open world, the story, the RPG systems, and personal player stories of the Nemesis System. As with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Monolith is committed to delivering the highest quality experience. 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. We’re excited to show more at E3.

So although you will have to wait longer, we will be getting more details about the game at E3.

When it is launched, it will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and for Windows 10 PC.
