By Joe Anderson, Sunday, 1 August 2010 17:30 GMT


A new job listing over at Gamasutra suggests Warner Bros are looking for new staff in order to develop new titles based on Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

The role, which is for a Director of Marketing, says the individual will be responsible for brand plan development for Lord of the Rings: War in the North and two games inspired by The Hobbit movies.

Lord of the Rings: War in the North in currently in development by Snowblind Studios and is due for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC next year.

There is no information on any of The Hobbit games at the moment, although perhaps this could suggest Warner is the “big company” Guillermo del Toro is working with on a few new titles.
