September 11, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will be delayed for current-gen consoles. 

Game publisher Warner Bros. Interactive entertainment said that the games “will take more time in development,” and have thus pushed back the release date to November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe. 

Originally, all console editions of Shadow of Mordor were supposed to be released on September 30 in North America and October 3 in Europe. The next-gen consoles (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) release dates are unchanged. 

Shadow of Mordor is developed by Monolith, and it is set after the events of The Hobbit but before The Lord of the Rings

Gamers will play Talion, a Ranger of Gondor who happens to have Wraith-like abilities that lets him access the minds of his enemies and dominate them. 

Talion is voiced by Troy Baker, who notably voices Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite and The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins

The latest Shadow of Mordor trailer features Baker and Nolan North, who voices The Black Hand of Sauron, an antagonist in Shadow of Mordor

North, who voices Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series, and Baker would go on to trade some light-hearted banter, and talk a little about the game.
