Daedalic Entertainment has a second The Lord of the Rings game in development, set to release prior to the end of August 2024.
The German publisher and developer recently released its first effort based on Tolkien's popular universe, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which so far counts among the year's worst-reviewed games.
Daedalic Entertainment Second The Lord of the Rings Game
As spotted by GamesWirtschaft, via Google Translate, Daedalic Entertainment's second The Lord of the Rings game is a 3D action-adventure set in "a lush world full of mythical creatures and magic."
Much like Gollum, it is said to tell an original story, allowing players to "discover completely new regions and influence the events of the world within the scope of [their] role and his abilities."
The title, codenamed "It's magic", has attracted government funding via the German Games Fund amounting to €2.036.663 ($2,189,459), which represents up to 50% of total development costs.
According to the website, only five other games have been granted a higher subsidy from Germany's federal government.
Daedalic Entertainment has yet to officially announce its second game based on the Lord of the Rings but, unless it's too far along in development, chances of a Gollum sequel are looking quite slim at the moment.
