Future Expansions of LotRO

Hayoo over on Visions of the Ring has created a dynamic map of likely expansions to LotRO up to 2015. It's all speculative, of course, but based on the known story and the existing maps. An eight-year plan for an MMO would be very ambitious, but I wouldn't think it's impossible, either.

An 8 year plan is very ambitious but so much money goes into developing/marketing these games that I think the successful ones have to/should live that long...UO is over a decade old and still doing well. Why not a great trilogy ;)...better than not planning hehe

Depends on how they are going to do in the future, if the player base is large enough I am sure they will expand the game more and more, but 8 years is a long for sure.

Eight years is a total nonsense. Nobody knows even what hardware there'll be then, let alone what software games we'll want to be playing.

LotR is a so great and well known brand that they can manage to do 8 years planning. with that kind of time line its more than just hardware, visual effects, etc. Its more about the the story, the world, etc.

I agree 8 years does seem like a really long time to do all that and I bet you by that time technology will shoot up like madness. The first game wasn't even that great, it was ok but not great. I hope the new one will be better because I was a bit disappointed. I love the movies though!
