The developers and publishers of the new Middle-earth: Shadow of War have today announced that the title will be delayed and will now launch worldwide on October 10th 2017 instead of during August as first announced.
The highly anticipated sequel will be available to play on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows 10 systems and is the sequel to the previously launched game developed by Monolith. Check out the recent live stream of gameplay below as well as the official announcement.
The official announcement reads :
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. 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.
