Warner Bros. Interactive may be working on an all-new AAA Lord of the Rings game, according to the LinkedIn profile of a former employee of Monolith Productions/WB Games Seattle. The profile was spotted by Superannuation.
This person said he created storyboards for the new and unannounced Lord of the Rings game in December and January, after MOBA Guardians of Middle-earth had released.
Developer Monolith Productions posted a job listing in May for a cross-generational AAA action-adventure game. Meanwhile, the company just last week opened a job requisition for a lead mission designer with "open-world mission design" experience.
If Warner Bros. is working on a new Lord of the Rings game, its name may have already been revealed. Rights holder The Saul Zaentz Company filed a trademark application in May for "Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor," covering game software, among other things.
A Warner Bros. representative was not immediately available to comment.
