Monolith Productions announced Middle-earth: Shadow of War back in February, with an August 22 release date. However, a new announcement by the developer has revealed the launch has been pushed back by a couple of months to October 10, 2017.
Although specifics were not covered in the announcement, the developer said that in order to achieve optimal quality standards, it has "made the difficult decision to move [the] launch date to ensure that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will deliver on that promise."
"We understand that it might be disappointing to have to wait a little longer for the release and are sorry for the delay, but we are working hard to make an amazing game," added the statement.
The developer does promise more details regarding the open world action game at E3, which will be held in just two weeks.
The game is slated to arrive for Steam, Windows 10, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, as well as Microsoft's upcoming Project Scorpio console. The game will also be a part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program, giving players access to the game on every Microsoft gaming platform when purchasing on a single one, with no additional costs.
