Shadow of War is the sequel to the 2014 hit game Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Target leaked the title early along with box art and some information, which you can get here at NeoGAF. At the point of writing, Warner Bros. and Monolith have yet to respond to the leak.
However on the same day itself, PlayStation released the official announcement trailer on their Facebook page. The video showed Talion and Celebrimbor (the two protagonists from Shadow of Mordor) forging a ring that is as powerful as Sauron’s. At the end of the trailer, the date which we can expect the game to hit the shelves was shown, August 22nd this year.
