Turbine has eased fears about the future of the MMO by stating it has an agreement in place for LOTRO until 2017.
“I just wanted to drop in and address the concerns surrounding the license, again. We have said as far back as July of 2013, we plan to support LOTRO for many years to come. I really want to be as clear as possible on this subject to avoid any further confusion or misunderstanding. The license was renewed.”
Further in the conversation with players Sapience confirmed, “We have an agreement that runs through 2017.”
