The Battle For Middle Earth 3: The Battle Of The Five Armies - Announced for 2016 Release! [April Fool]

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces today that The Battle for Middle-earth 3: The Battle of the Five Armies, an epic real time strategy game based on J.R.R. Tolkien's renowned novels is set to launch on the PS4 Xbox One and PC in 2016.

"Having secured the rights to this fabled franchise, we can finally bring The Battle for Middle-earth into the current generation of video games," says Isaac Johnston, High King, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Utilizing the award-winning people behind 2014's 'Shadow of Mordor', we are looking to both satisfy the existing The Battle for Middle-earth fanbase as well as evolve its concepts to attract new gamers to this franchise. This is going to be the Lord of the Rings RTS experience fans have been waiting for."

Really not sure on this one, if it is an April fools it's very well done. The assets at the bottom look realistic for it and it even has a decent Warner Brothers legal blumf part. It's the Isaac Johnston, "High King", Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment that makes me doubtful... it would be awesome to see a return of the franchise and given the success of Shadow of Mordor I wouldn't rule it out..

Edit: Bah it was a fool.. what a shame it would have sold hotcakes!
