Director Guillermo del Toro has said that there will not be a Hobbit game tie-in with the upcoming movie at launch.

“It’s too ambitious to try and tackle that along with ‘The Hobbit’, he told MTV. “We have such tight release dates.”

Guillermo says that he and Peter Jackson will have a part in the eventual game, but from a writer’s standpoint, it’s too tough to be as heavily involved in it as he’d like at this time.

We can now all breathe a collective sigh of relief.

    That’s never stopped a publisher before. What’s the betting that’s exactly what happens.

    Hehe..

    And those bloody bulbous eyes always used to get me after picking up the ring from Gollum.

    The game was damn near impossible to play if you hadn’t read the book. How was I supposed to know the ring would randomly take itself off and put itself back in my pocket?
