Middle-earth: Shadow of War Delayed to October 10th

Shadow of War

Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Monolith’s hotly-anticipated sequel to Shadow of Mordor, was set to be released on August 22nd, but today Monolith has announced that the game has been delayed a little and will no release worldwide on October 10th.

Here’s the statement posted on the game’s site:

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will now launch worldwide on Oct. 10, 2017**.

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.

**Some territories such as Australia, New Zealand and Japan will have a different release date.

Smith’s Sentiment: If a developer needs more time to make their game the best they can, then so be it. This delay hurts, for me at least, because it pushes the game into a time that’s going to be more crowded than August. Everything we’ve seen about the game looks great though, so a little extra time can certainly only help.

  1. I’m bummed because I’m looking forward to it but likely a “good delay” to insure quality control. It will be worth it.
