Embracer Group acquired the rights to the “Lord of the Rings” and “Hobbit” trademarks, while willingly sharing the opportunity to develop intellectual property. Weta Workshop is a team given the opportunity to tell a story in the world of JRR Tolkien.
Already in 2021 we may encounter rumours, while a year later we received official confirmation that the Weta Workshop games division has accepted the challenge of creating an item set in the Lord of the Rings universe. It is worth noting that The New Zealand company deals primarily with special effects and props – on its website you won’t find a comprehensive catalog of toys created, although a special section was created in 2014, but you will be able to purchase many props from Tolkien’s world.
Weta Workshop worked on the “Lord of the Rings” film series, and is able to use the experience gained to offer players a new, rather unusual production.
Tales of the Shire: Lord of the Rings is coming to consoles and PC – the game will debut next year, but we haven’t received any details yet. The published teaser does not allow us to look at even the smallest elements of the item.
Let us add that Weta Workshop can count on strong support during the development of Tales of the Shire: A The Lord of the Rings Game – the production publisher is Private Division, i.e. Take-Two (GTA), a company that deals with smaller companies. Projects.
