We Are Leaving ModDB
We will not say “do not weep”, for not all tears are an evil.
Dear fans and players,
we have received word from ModDB officials that Warner Bros has sent them a DMCA takedown request to remove Rise of Mordor from their databases. We are grateful to ModDB for giving us time to put our affairs in order before the page is taken down.
From what we know, this has to do with copyright infringement, as WarnerBrothers holds rights to making games related to both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies. At the same time, we do not know the specific reason triggering their intervention, seeing as we are a modification for an existing game and a non commercial project. At the moment, the only thing we can do is comply with the request from Warner Brothers. We’ll keep you posted on YouTube and on our Discord on everything happening.
We have sent emails to the Intellectual Property team of Warner Brothers and we are currently waiting on some form of answer, as well as a way to continue uploading our work here. Our developers are still going strong and you will soon see some previews we're sure you will enjoy!
Let me be clear. The mod HAS NOT been taken down, just our ModDB page.
As such, you can still join our Discord and keep up to date with our YouTube channel, as well as downloading through our NexusMods page.
