The successor to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War promises to be an exciting title, as it expands on its predecessor’s Nemesis System and adds on a slew of new features to give players more satisfaction in their orc-slaying conquests. Most of us are understandably excited to try out the game when it launches on August 22, but we’ll have to wait a little longer now since Shadow of War has been delayed to October 10.
The announcement was made by developer Monolith Productions on the game’s official forums, citing the reason for the delay as their assurance in delivering “the highest quality experience” with Shadow of War. As much as excuses go, it’s a fairly standard answer for triple-A game delays, so we can only hope the final product will be as good as they promised.
With that said, it’s still a bummer nonetheless to receive this news, but hey, Monolith also mentioned that we’ll see more of Shadow of War at E3 2017, so that’s something to look forward to as well. They might even impress us with more awesome-looking footages than what we have seen so far.
