Daedalic Entertainment, the developer of the recently released The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, is working on a new game based on the Lord of the Rings universe. The launch of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was less than ideal, with numerous issues such as bugs, inappropriate typographical choices, and other major issues, making it currently the lowest-rated game on the market. year 2023.
A new project already in preparation
A new project is already underway at Daedalic Entertainment, as reported by a Reddit user named Com_Raven on the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit, and as first revealed by German outlet Gameswirtschaft.de. This unannounced game was discovered in the database of video game projects receiving a German government grant, which makes sense since Daedalic Entertainment is a German studio.
This new game seems to be titled “It’s Magic”. It was funded by a government grant of 2.03 million euros last year and its targeted release date is August 2024, at least according to the patent end date.
The description of the game, although brief and rather vague, is available on the overview page. According to the patent, The Lord of the Rings: It’s Magic will be a new project that will immerse players in a lush world filled with mythical creatures and magic, from the perspective of a character that has never been explored before.
The patent goes on to describe the game as follows: “The player will discover totally new regions and influence world events according to his role and abilities. He will seek in his own way to influence the course of things and change the destiny of the world. This project is aimed at lovers of fantasy stories and 3D action-adventure games around the world. »
This project has yet to be officially announced by Daedalic Entertainment, making its current development status uncertain. Despite the difficulties encountered during the launch of Gollum, it should be noted that the German government has already invested a considerable sum in the development of this game, which suggests that Daedalic will have to live up to its commitments, even if Gollum has been poorly received. Fans of the Lord of the Rings universe will therefore have to stay tuned for official announcements to learn more about this mysterious project.
