Middle-earth: Shadow of War Delayed

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Delayed

Middle-earth: Shadow of War – the upcoming fantasy action title, set in the Lord of the Rings universe – has been delayed. Originally scheduled for an August release date, the game will now release on October 10.

"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," a community manager posted on the official forums.

"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."

October typically proves to be one of the busiest months on the gaming calendar, with other major AAA releases often scheduled for then too.

What else is coming out in October? Given Red Dead's delay, they might still face some competition with other games
