Guardians of Middle Earth game domain names registered [UPDATED]

In March 2012, Middle-earth Enterprises (a division of The Saul Zaentz Company), registered domain names hinting at a “Legends of Middle Earth” game.  Those domain names were publicly registered through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor.

Now, this week, a handful of domains have been privately registered through MarkMonitor that indicate a game by a different title may be in the works: Guardians of Middle Earth.

On May 1, (Whois), (Whois), (Whois), and (Whois), were all registered.  Given that Middle-earth Enterprises is a known-client of MarkMonitor, it’s safe to say that the company is behind the registrations.

At the time of this story, none of the domain names resolve to a web page nor has there been any official announcement about a “Guardians of Middle Earth” game.

The Hobbit, an upcoming film based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel, is set to be released in December 2012.
