Last-gen console versions of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor have been delayed, Warner has announced.

The company said both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game require more time in development, and as such will now launch on November 21.

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game are still on target for an October 8 release.

The PC version will be out first on September 30.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance.

It's in development at Monolith, the studio behind the F.E.A.R. series.
