The Lord of the Rings Online was released in 2007 and it has received steady support over the years with numerous paid expansions and free updates. The game switched from a subscription model to free-to-play in 2010 and development on the game shifted from Turbine to Standing Stone Games, which is the current developer of the MMO.
The publisher of the game is Daybreak Games, which was recently acquired by Enad Global 7. During a recent investor presentation, the publisher said The Lord of the Rings Online is planning significant updates in 2022 to piggyback on Amazon’s TV show, and this includes potentially bringing the MMO to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The game won’t be the only Lord of the Rings MMO in town forever, as Amazon is developing its own Lord of the Rings MMO, though it’s not connected to the company’s new TV show. Outside of MMOs, a new Lord of the Rings game focusing on Gollum is in the works.
