According to Bloomberg, the MMORPG was in development by Amazon Game Studios in collaboration with Chinese video game holding company Leyou Technologies Holdings Ltd. A spokesperson from Amazon announced the cancellation in a statement, saying, "We love the Lord of the Rings IP, and are disappointed that we won't be bringing this game to customers."

thats to bad

i was keeping an eye on it as a former lotro player.

I am in fact a Hobbit (in all but size). I like gardens, trees and unmechanized farmlands; I smoke a pipe, and like good plain food (unrefrigerated), but detest French cooking; I like, and even dare to wear in these dull days, ornamental waistcoats. I am fond of mushrooms (out of a field); have a very simple sense of humour (which even my appreciative critics find tiresome); I go to bed late and get up late.

Im sorry-my earlier post was blank inside

Im not sure why what I wrote disappeared.

I had also included inside, that the players there are still very active and friendly.

Alas, I also dont get much time there anymore either.
