Thanks to GameSpyDaily for the news that Vivendi's Lord Of The Rings game sequel, The Treason Of Isengard, has been cancelled
. The PS2/Xbox title, a Surreal
-developed follow-up to last year's disappointing Fellowship Of The Ring
, was apparently "not going to achieve the strict... standards for our Tolkien games"
, and so the book-licensed game was axed, despite a number of public showings
and the newly-unveiled ability to play as Treebeard
. In other LOTR game news, EA has announced the ability to play online
for its forthcoming, non-cancelled movie-licensed title, Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King
