Looking for the Rest of the II Legion

Saw an article on Faeit 212 quoting an anonymous insider who claims that LotR will be going the way of AoS and 8th Edition 40k by the end of the year, being shifted to have rules more similar to the other GW systems? What are people's thoughts on this? I personally love the old style of play and find it really easy to keep track of, so I'm not entirely seeing the rationale behind changing it.

Faeit being it's usual idiot self I see. No, nothing like that is happening. All that's happening is the game is being rebranded to Middle Earth sbg with a new rulebook coming out tweaking things like magic and special strikes. Also supposedly giving all the older armies army wide special rules in a similar fashion to the "There and back again" supplement. This has been told to us by the Middle Earth team. In fact you can ask them directly on the Great British Hobbit League on Facebook. They're all members and post there regularly.

Completely false, utterly slowed bs.

Adam Troke, who is head of SBG development, posts on Facebook and answers questions and runs seminars and gives previews of everything coming out.
It would have taken twelve seconds for Faeit to have confirmed that, which goes to show you how awful and clickbaity it has become.

Thank you for the responses guys! I wasn't aware that it was a black hole of a news source like that; was just trying to gather more information on here, so thanks very much for the clarification!

I think it was leaked at one of the recent conventions; rumored to be before the end of the year I think, but not as extreme a shift as I initially thought.
