Fantasy Flight Interactive, the game developer arm of The Lord of the Rings Adventure Card Game is to close after just 2 years in business.
The studios speciality was to bring Fantasy Flight’s board games to the video game platform, it’s first project being The Lord of the Rings.
If you haven’t played The Lords of the Rings Adventure Card Game, you should check it out whilst you still as it’s a pretty fun card game drawing upon Hearthstone elements.
“It’s with great sadness that I have to report that the decision has been made to close Fantasy Flight Interactive next month,” said Studio Head Tim Gerritsen in a post on LinkedIn.
“I’m proud of the team and the game we’ve dedicated ourselves to for the past few years. It’s a been an amazing journey with even more amazing people. I’m going to do my best to get my team placed in new positions. I have programmers, designers, artists, QA staff and a producer to get placed in new roles and will do my best to do so quickly. Additionally, I’m now open to new opportunities myself since I will also be out of a job.”
The Lord of the Rings Adventure Card Game only launched for Xbox One in November 2019, so it’s a shame but for the time being its servers remain online.
