A stunt actress has listed a sequel to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on her resume, which shouldn’t surprise anyone considering how well-received the first game was with critics and the public alike.
According to Lauren Mary Kim’s resume on her iStunt page, “Shadows of Mordor 2” was listed under her motion capture work alongside other games such as God of War Ascension, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Dark Souls 2 among others.
We say was because since her list of work references came to light, “Shadows of Mordor 2” has been removed from her resume – along with the already announced Mafia 3 for some reason. Luckily, Nerdleaks took a screengrab.
Per the now removed entry, Kim had Blur listed as the employer on the Shadow of Mordor job. As GamesRadar notes, this likely refers to Blur Studio which creates CGI video game trailers that aren’t made in-house.
It’s being suggested the video could make an appearance at E3 2016 by both sites. Warner has not responded to requests for comment.
Update: Kim spoke to WCCF Tech, describing the information as “inaccurate” and the result of a database error.
Monolith has been working on an unannounced project since August 2015, according to the resume of Shadow of Mordor’s senior designer Jed Bellini. A senior world artist who previously worked at Ubisoft on Far Cry Primal, Jobye-Kyle Karmaker, has also been working on an unannounced project at Monolith since February 2016. Whether they are both working on the same project or a Shadow of Mordor sequel is not known at this time.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was released on September 30, 2014. A Game of the Year Edition with all post-release content arrived in May 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
