Through the rabbit hole

FEAR developer Monolith may be working on a Hobbit title to tie-in with Peter Jackson’s upcoming film.

Whistle blower Superannuation has the scoop, claiming on Twitter:

As to what Monolith/Warner Bros. Games Seattle is up to now - pretty sure it is a little fantasy action RPG-lite called The Hobbit: Part One.

Monolith is well known for its work on horror franchises FEAR and Condemned, but this wouldn’t exactly be massive change of pace for the studio. It recently released the downloadable class-based shooter Gotham City Imposters, and also built The Matrix Online in the mid-2000s.
