"Warner Bros has been quietly in the shadows with the video game rights to Lord of the Rings. In the past EA has held onto the IP and produced some games along the way. Jump to 2010 and the rights seemed to have fallen into the lap of Warner Home Video Games. After seeing EA hit a brick wall with their take on the movie adaption, Warner Bros decided to revamp the game completely and go with a softer kiddie style then the RPG and next gen graphics of EA’s titles."
