Could an official announcement be coming soon?
A listing for Shadow of Mordor 2 has appeared online, albeit it not in the most conventional form.
Stunt actress Lauren Mary Kim, responsible for stunt work on big-budget films including Fast and Furious 7, Transformers 4 and Suicide Squad, has updated her IMDB profile page to including Shadow of Mordor 2 as one of her projects.
Kim has previously performed both stunt and motion capture work for various video games, including Bioshock Infinite, Batman: Arkham Knight, Assassin’s Creed Unity, God of War: Ascension and the upcoming Mafia 3.
The listing on Kim’s IMDB page, which you can see below, points to Blur Studios as the location for the motion capture/stunt work performed for Shadow of Mordor 2. Blur’s previous CGI credits included the recent Deadpool film, as well as CGI trailers for Batman: Arkham Knight, Dishonored 2 and The Division.
At this point in time it is unknown if there is in fact a sequel to 2014’s Shadow of Mordor currently in production, or what Monolith Studios have actually been working on since DLC for the original game concluded around a year ago.
