In a statement today from the producer of Lord of the Rings Online, it has been revealed that the upcoming Riders of Rohan expansion has been delayed.
Kate Paiz, Executive Producer of the game talked about the decision to delay the expansions release.
“Thanks to some great efforts from beta players, we’ve identified issues that we think need to be addressed before we can launch. In order to address those issues and meet our expectations for quality we’re going to need more time. As a result, we’ve elected to delay our launch to October 15th.”
Those who pre-ordered may be upset, but Paiz says there will be in-game gifts for those who did.
“We understand that many players have been looking forward to joining us in Rohan as soon as possible and will be disappointed by this news. As a token of our appreciation for your patience we are granting a gift to all pre-purchasers of Riders of Rohan.”
