The effects studio behind The Lord of the Rings is working on a video game

Weta Workshop, the special effects firm behind films including The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Avatar, and Shang-Chi, has just stated that its games section is working on a new project involving "a big license of fame. worldwide."

A enigmatic project

In fact, the studio is looking for a producer, with the following job description: "We're looking for a producer who can assist us in creating cutting-edge games. Our next PC game will be based on a rich and fascinating license that will please fans and players all around the world. Isn't it intriguing?"

The studio is based in Wellington, New Zealand, and while the offer appears to only refer to a PC release, the truth is that the producer candidate "will assist Weta in launching its next game on PC and consoles," so it's likely that it'll be released on multiple platforms.

It's worth noting that Weta hasn't officially announced the project, so all we know about it comes from this job posting. Given that they've already worked on The Lord of the Rings and that Amazon is gearing up to broadcast a new series of this license on Amazon Prime next year, it wouldn't be shocking if it's a related product designed to capitalize on the public's predictable and renewed interest in the franchise.

Whatever the case may be, we'll have to wait a bit to clear up any concerns and confirm the nature of this new video game. We'll let you know as soon as we learn more about him.
