The Hobbit game planned for November 2012
Games based on The Lord of the Rings have been immensely popular over the past decade, with a new game being released nearly every year since 2002. A return to Middle Earth next year with Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit will generate more interest in Tolkien’s world, so it makes sense for Warner Bros. to develop a Hobbit game.
The key quote for Tolkien fans is:Warner will launch a new Lord of the Rings game in November and a Hobbit title in 2012 before Peter Jackson‘s movie “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” comes out that December. The game is one of the studio’s top releases for next year, along with a Lego Batman sequel and a game featuring a superhero from Warner’s DC Comics unit that Tremblay wouldn’t name.
