If One True Media didn't just become a bitch then Crash Bandicoot: The Sins of the Father Part 8 would have been up already.
Her'es the thing, EA's stronghold in in TPS game's came from Lord of the Rings video games, they don't have the license anymore, but they have BioWare, you get one, you lose one.
Now Warner Bros has the license, the first thing they released was Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest. It was an average start, a good game, but an average start. EA had a tremendous start and an awesome game. Warner Bros is likely going to be more or less consistent with their license, having given it to Snowblind Studios. It looks as if they are trying to beat EA's Lord of the Rings video game fame with Lord of the Rings: War in the North. If this succeeds, you can expect Snowblind to make a Hobbit video game using the Dark Alliance Engine while working on a sequel to War in the North.
This is how it'll work out if War in the North is successful. Snowblind will be commissioned to making the Hobbit video game, parts 1 and 2, which they'll work on while working on a sequel to War in the North likely. The Hobbit will receive positive reviews, but it wont be as good as War in the North because of the developers desire to work full time on War in the North 2 and because they'll have less freedom when making the game.
Will Warner Bro's Lord of the Rings best EA's? Look at the games:
The Two Towers : 8.3/10
The Return of the King : 8.9/10
The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth : 8.4/10
The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age : 8.5/10
The Lord of the Rings: Tactics : 7.7/10
The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth II : 9.0/10
The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest : 6/10
