Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment continues to juggle the release date of its upcoming RPG Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, pushing the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions back to November 18 in the Americas and November 21 in Europe.

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are still scheduled for September 30 in the Americas and October 3 in Europe. PC and Steam versions will simultaneously arrive in both regions on September 30.

The game was originally slated to release on October 7, a date jam-packed with other high-profile releases like Alien: Isolation and the more directly competing Dragon Age: Inquisition. Dragon Age flinched first and slipped back to November 18, confident in BioWare’s higher profile.

While the last-gen version of Shadow of Mordor will now be competing for the November spot, the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 editions will have a month to grab the attention of swords and sorcery buffs before facing down the dragon.
