Here is their contact info, send an email tell them we want lotr.
"Christopher Tolkien, son and literary heir of J.R.R. Tolkien, resigned from the Tolkien Estate. And his departure changes everything.....With Christopher’s departure as an officer of the Tolkien Estate (which was incorporated in 2011), the long-awaited “rights frenzy” for Tolkien properties may soon begin,”
Christopher Tolkien has retired and the rights of the Tolkien estate are up for grabs. Perfect time for CA to make a Lord of the Rings total war. Or, to work with Warner Bros to make a LOTR total war. They have worked together before.
SEGA PARTNERS WITH WARNER BROS.
Why Lord of the Rings Total war?
Tolkien carries the largest fantasy fan base of all time only expanded by the movies that could be brought into the total war series. A match made in haven. As someone who has not played a total war game since empire, this would get me back into total war. Lord of the Rings is the best selling fantasy book of all time. The Hobbit is the third best fantasy seller. Besides the Bible, LOTR is the third best selling book of all time, the Hobbit is 8th on the all time list.
The world created by Tolkien would fit perfect for the next fantasy total war game. Lord of the Rings provides what Total war needs.
- Large fan base already present
- Multiple diverse factions with both challenges and bonuses for each
- Hugh map of Middle Earth with diverse terrain and battle maps
- Large numbers of diverse units and forces for epic battles
- Large castles for epic siege battles
- Hero's of legend with special abilities
-Agents, spies, assassins, diplomats etc
- Battle over land, sea and air
- Economy and trade
-Expansions and DLC could be done on the first and second ages
It is not surprising that the most awarded, most downloaded , mod ever made for a total war game is the third age mod.
Since this mod was done for medieval 2 and was a mod, it had major setbacks. But it shows the poetical for what a CA done Lord of the Rings total war would be, it would simply be the "One game to rule them all"
However there is an irrefutable reason CA needs to make middle earth total war. Tolkien was from England, CA is based in England. Tolkien made LOTR so England could have its own fantasy [like the Norse epics]. Therefore out of sheer duty and patriotism, CA must know make the video game for England. It irrefutable. Or else CA have no right to be called Brits.

Give this Mod for Mount & Blade a shot:
I'm part of the team that developed (is still developing) the game
I have heard great things of the mod however i do not own mount and blade. what sort of game is it? what are you able to do in the mod?
You can download a trial version of M&B for free. Either via taleworlds.com or via Steam.
Mount and Blade itself is a single or multiplayer role playing game based on medieval battle. It is basically a sandbox game, without a real story. You can recruit troops into your party, either generic troops or NPCs, and fight battles againt opposing forces. You can also purchase different armors and weapons, etc.
In the mod, this is all updated for middle earth. There is a war system, where you can fight against mordor and almost defeat them. Or vice versa. The map stretches from Erebor to Mordor and from Isengard to Mordor. All NPCs, castles, troops and items are updated to reflect Middle Earth lore.
