Lord of the Rings: The Treason of Isengard cancelled

  Vivendi Universal confirmed that they have axed the upcoming Lord of the Rings game, claiming that the game was not meeting expectations. The game was being developed by Surreal Software, creators of Drakan: The Ancients' Gate and The Suffering. Vivendi recently released a statement concerning the cancellation of the game:

   "Scheduled for release in Q4 2003, Treason of Isengard was dropped from the release schedule when it was determined that the game was not shaping up as strongly as anticipated and would likely not satisfy the expectations of Tolkien fans. Vivendi Universal Games remains committed to developing and releasing quality games based on the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and we look forward to the release of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring this November, as well as Middle-Earth Online next year."

   We'll have more information on Vivendi's upcoming Lord of the Rings games in the near future.
