Lord of the Rings RPG scrapped?

EA declines to comment on rumours that The White Council has been disbanded.

It's been reported today that the plug has been pulled on hotly anticipated RPG Lord of the Rings: The White Council.

The rumours will be a devastating blow to fans of Tolkien's epic trilogy and Peter Jackson's blockbuster movies who were looking forward to an Oblivion-style experience set in the rich world of Middle-earth.

In the game, players would have been able to choose their role as a man, elf, dwarf or hobbit and explore massive open environments, with the ultimate goal of becoming a hero allied to the White Council - where they would encounter series stalwarts Gandalf, Saruman, Galadriel and Elrond.

The story is too old to be commented.

EA was in danger of actually making a good game with this one. No wonder they panicked and pulled the plug!

I just wish they'd do the honorable thing and sell off the C&C franchise to a studio that can do it justice. If C&C3 turns out like BFME2 on 360 i'll never buy another EA game again.
