The Lord of the Rings Online license has been renewed until 2017, developer Turbine has revealed.

“We plan to support LOTRO for many years to come,” wrote community manager Rick Heaton in the game’s forum. “I really want to be as clear as possible on this subject to avoid any further confusion or misunderstanding. The license was renewed.

“We have an agreement that runs through 2017,” he added.

Earlier this week community manager Rick Heaton stated that Turbine wasn’t working on any new dungeon instances for the game in 2014. He later clarified the statement: “That statement was made in a conversation about things we should be looking forward to in 2014. It doesn’t mean Turbine isn’t planning other types of group content, and it doesn’t mean there will never be a new traditional instance or raid again.”

It was also stated that due to technical limitations there are currently no plans to merge servers.
