Amazon's also developing author J.R.R. Tolkien's "Rings" book trilogy into a television series. It's reportedly spending about $465 million on the first season alone, after buying the rights for a reported $250 million. The total price tag for the show is expected to top $1 billion.When Amazon announced the game in 2019, the company said: "Set in the world of Middle-earth portrayed in 'The Lord of the Rings' literary trilogy, the game will give fans around the globe a new, immersive game experience for epic exploration of the vast world of Tolkien."
The game was set to be a massively multiplayer online game, the type of expansive game that encourages players to wander and explore a digital world."We love the Lord of the Rings IP, and are disappointed that we won't be bringing this game to customers," an Amazon spokesperson told Bloomberg. Published in the mid-1950s, Tolkien's three novels, about Frodo Baggins' quest to destroy a powerful ring, have proven themselves able to pull in new audiences across generations.
A series of three movies made by director Peter Jackson grossed just shy of $3 billion at the box office, according to Box Office Mojo.
