Middle-earth: Shadow of War will now launch worldwide on Oct. 10, 2017. This information was shared by the Warner Bros. development team this morning. While this may be a normal delay, it’s more likely that the game will coincide with the launch of Project Scorpio. However, this is pure speculation and Project Scorpio may launch sometime in November or December. We won’t know for sure until June 11.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands gameplay in every dimension, including the massive open world, the story, the role-playing systems, and personal player stories of the Nemesis System. As with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Monolith Productions is committed to delivering the highest quality experience. In order to do this, they have made the difficult decision to move the launch date to ensure that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will deliver on that promise.
The developers said, “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 2017.”
