Warner Bros successfully patented 'Shadow of Mordor' Nemesis system

Warner Bros application for a patent on Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor’s Nemesis System has finally been granted.

Warner Bros will have the option to maintain the patent through until 2035, provided that they pay the required fees.

As NME reported last week , WB first attempted to patent the Nemesis System came in 2016, but it had not been accepted.

The Nemesis system was originally developed by Monolith Productions for 2014’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor was well received for its ability to track player’s in-game actions, such as their victories and defeats at the hands of the game’s various procedurally generated Orcs.

Vlambeer developer Rami Ismail was quick to point out on Twitter that despite the patent being registered, “having one doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll enforce it or win a case on it.”

In July 2020, WCCFTech reported on the rumour that the next Batman game in development by Warner Bros. Montreal may well feature the Nemesis system.
