EA confirms the new Lord of the Rings game to remain in development after Apex and Battlefield Mobile are canceled

The game will be released in later parts of 2023

EA has reportedly made it clear with their upper-level management statement that their upcoming Lord of the Rings mobile game, Heroes of Middle-earth, remains in development. The reason that makes this news special is the fact that EA has recently canceled two big projects lately, Apex Legends Mobile and Battlefield Mobile, both this week.

The news was announced in the recent earnings call this week

The news regarding the game being in development was announced by EA boss Laura Miele in an earnings call this week stating that the team at EA’s Capital Games continues to actively develop Heroes of Middle-earth. The news would definitely bring calm and relief to Lord of the Rings fans given that EA was out canceling so many titles lately.

The game had a regional test in the Philippines back in 2022, and Miele said the full release remains on track for later in 2023. The game will be developed by Capital games, the same developer which previously made Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, which is one of EA’s most successful mobile games of all time, generating more than $1 billion from microtransactions.

The game offers an engaging storytelling experience with a strategy RPG gaming experience in the mix. Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth tells the story of a new ring discovered in Middle Earth. That ring has the power to rewrite history and players will have the choice to use it for either good or evil. Naturally, there is a fight for it, and players can use the ring for good or evil. Being a strategy-based RPG the game offers many characters to choose from.

EA shocked the fans worldwide with their announcement regarding Apex and Battlefield Mobile, many feared that other projects under development might meet the same fate as well. However, with this statement, the developers have sent a clear message to the fanbase that those claims are baseless, and they can expect the game to be released sometime in 2023.
