WB Games Delay Middle-earth: Shadow of War to October; Promises to Show More at E3 2017

Today WB Games have announced that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will now be releasing on October 10, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The announcement comes from the WB Games community page, where the community manager at Monolith Productions details the cause of the delay. “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”. Read the full statement down below:

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.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War was originally set to release on August 22, but it seems that the game needs a little more time. We’ve been seeing plenty of gameplay from the upcoming sequel, you can check out the recently released open-world trailer here, the new predator skill tree gameplay video here, and 16-glorious minutes of action-oriented gameplay right here.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 10.
