The Lord of the Rings Visual Effects Studio is developing a video game based on the’major worldwide IP’ of the Lord of the Rings

A successful candidate will be involved in helping the team create “cutting edge games,” according to a post on Weta Workshop’s Facebook page, including the studio’s next release, which is based on “an incredibly rich and inspiring licence that will fill fans and players around the world with delight.”

Weta Workshop, widely renowned for its visual effects work on The Lord of the Rings films, has announced that its gaming section is working on a new video game based on a “big worldwide IP” in a job advertisement.

According to the vacancy post listed on Weta Workshop’s website, the company is looking for a game producer to deliver Weta’s next PC and console project, which is said to be based on a “major worldwide IP very close to [their] hearts.”

While this could suggest that the game may have links to the Lord of the Rings franchise, given that Weta Workshop is best known for its visual effects work on Peter Jackson’s trilogy of films, the post stops short of making any further connections.

With the studio also having worked on a number of other major projects including King Kong, Avatar, and more recently Dune, there’s definitely enough ambiguity there to leave questions surrounding what the project might be.

Weta Workshop was launched in 1987. Since then, the studio has worked on a number of games including the multiplayer VR game Combonauts.

While it’s still currently unclear whether Weta Workshop’s upcoming game will be based around the Lord of the Rings franchise, Middle Earth fans are still set to get a healthy dose of (non-film trilogy related) gaming content through Daedalic’s Lord of the Rings: Gollum. Earlier this year, it was announced that the studio had partnered with Nacon to publish the game – though this also came with a further announcement stating that the game had been delayed until 2022.
