“The game will give fans around the globe a new, immersive game experience for epic exploration of the vast world of Tolkien,” Christoph Hartmann, vice president of Amazon Game Studios
Alex Xu, CEO of Leyou Technologies Holdings, added, “Bringing Middle-earth to life necessitates having the very best partners, and Amazon’s customer obsession, technology, and talented teams make it the ideal choice for a co-developer and publisher. We believe our combined resources and expertise will result in a beautiful and compelling game that customers will love and play for years to come.”
