Gearbox president Randy Pitchford has revealed that he pitched three “concepts” for Lord of the Rings video games, but none of them got off the ground, which is why he is especially happy to have been able to announce a fantasy game in the form of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
Posting on Twitter, the Borderlands studio head revealed that his Lord of the Rings game concept pitches came “long before the movies,” in the year 1999. He said each pitch was unsuccessful, but he did not share any other information about these games.
With Wonderlands, Pitchford is finally getting to release a first-person action RPG fantasy game. “For me, Wonderlands is the culmination of this 20+ year long dream,” he said.
