It’s not a big surprise to learn Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is getting a sequel. After all, it was one of the best games of 2014. However, the sequel was never officially announced, and yet we know of its existence. How? Because it’s listed on a stuntswomen’s CV on the website iStunt.
The stuntwomen in question is Lauren Mary Kim, a famous stunt coordinator who worked on titles like Batman: Arkham Knight, Bioshock Infinite, Assassin’s Creed Unity and many more.
According to Kim’s CV on the website, the last title she has worked on was Shadow of Mordor 2. The listing specifically reads “Shadows of Mordor 2 – Stunts/Acting – Blur”. Kim iStunt profile has since gone private, but Nerdleaks has managed to grab a screenshot in time.
Blur is presumed to be Blur Studios, a CGI studio with a very impressive list of clients and projects.
So Shadow of Mordor 2 is happening. It’s probably the “unannounced project” Monolith Productions have been working on for the last couple of years. I wouldn’t be surprised if Warner Bros. will announce the game at E3, or even before that, with a cinematic trailer.
