BFME 1 & 2 Remastered?

★★★★ Novice

Why is there no remastered versions of Battle for Middle Earth I and II? I recall that EA no longer has the rights to make more LOTR games but you would think they still retain the right to the games they have made. I have the old versions of the games but the don't play well on new PCs. I had to have a friend help me with downloading a crack file just to play the games. I'm hoping EA could possibly remaster or make a digital version for newer PCs. I'm sure people would pay for newer versions (at least I would). Sounds Impossible but I'm just hoping for it.

EA no longer has the Lord of the Rings license. They dropped it in 2011 and are no longer legally permitted to develop, support or sell any games with that IP.

That sucks! I love these games and judging by how well remastering games is going comparing to Starcraft and Age of empires I'm surprised that they aren't jumping on this Standard smile
