Update: The trailer released
At the moment it is not confirmed as the sequel to the sleeper hit Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, but earlier today a game called “Middle-Earth: Shadow of War” suddenly appeared on Target’s Retail Site. According to the page, the game is supposed to launch August 22, 2017. Of course, when it happened, the screen shot below was posted everywhere on social media.
Thanks to NeoGAF we also have a screen shot of the box art on the PS4. The link from Target’s website as been altered since this morning.
Well as of now we will be left in the dark until an official announcement. Could this be a sequel or a prequel to the previous game? When we receive more information we will make sure to keep everyone updated.
