In August last year, the Embracer Group announced that it was acquiring Middle-earth Enterprises, and the Lord of the Rings IP with it. The company has said it’s taking a long-term view with the IP and how best to utilize it, and while the full extent of those plans obviously won’t be clear for a while yet, in the short term, in the gaming space, there are a number of upcoming releases lined up.

In its recent quarterly fiscal report, the Embracer Group revealed that it has five The Lord of the Rings games lined up for release in FY 2023/24, which runs from April 2023 to March 2024, coming from external development partners.

“This acquisition has generated a lot of interest among both internal and external partners for the Lord of the Rings IP, across different media formats,” the company wrote. “There are currently five games in production by external partners, to be released in financial year 2023/24.”

Four out of these five games have been officially confirmed to be in development so far, including Nacon and Daedalic Entertainment’s The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, EA’s mobile title The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth, Free Range Games and published by North Beach Games’ co-op survival title The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria, and Private Division and Weta Workshop’s untitled Middle-earth game.
