According to reports, LEGO Dimensions, Warner Bros.’ fairly ambitious toys-to-life game, is coming to an end.
Another toys-to-life game is about to bite the dust if a report from Eurogamer is to be believed. The lengthy article, which you can read here, dives deep into some of the difficulties both TT Games and Warner Bros. have had keeping this struggling genre afloat.
The report states that Warner Bros. were looking at the future product slate in regards to shelving the project, however it was later confirmed that the series is being canned in an email to TT Games from studio manager Dave Dootson.
“Thanks so much to everyone for making Dimensions possible,” Dootson said. “As difficult as it has been, it is worth celebrating the incredible achievement it represents in the quality of the game, the amazing blend of IPs and the challenging technical demands it presented. It stands as a real testament to the talent within TT.”
LEGO Dimensions launched in September 2015 and has since seen an absolute bucket-load of content being added to the game through a number of different sets spanning several properties including Ghost Busters, E.T., PowerPuff Girls, and many, many more.
According to the report, Warner Bros. had a third year of content planned for the game, including a Minecraft expansion, more Doctor Who content, and another pack that’d wrap up the game’s storyline featuring Lord Vortech.
According to Eurogamer, WBIE had planned for three years of support for the game, including a Lego Minecraft expansion, another Doctor Who pack, and a storyline-concluding add-on featuring the antagonist Lord Vortech. Chances of that happening right now are pretty slim.
It’s worth noting that aside from the report, Warner Bros. and TT Games have yet to release an official statement.
