It is with a sad heart to report that LEGO Dimensions will be no more. LEGO Dimensions will be falling short of its three-year rollout plan which began in 2015 as a source close to the project told Eurogamer.
Like many LEGO fans, LEGO Dimensions was a boon for minifigure collectors with characters ranging from intellectual properties that you normally won’t see in regular sets like Portal, Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Powerpuff Girls, Sonic the Hedgehog and even The A-Team!
But due to production cost and the fall in popularity for Toys-to-Life video games, it was only a matter of time that publisher Warner Bros and developer TT Games threw in the towel.
“Thanks so much to everyone for making Dimensions possible. 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” ~ Dave Dootson (TT Games studio manager)
If LEGO Dimensions were to make it through to the third year, we would have seen some interesting new concepts developed like “a camera which would be able to scan small Lego builds and replicate them within the game” and a return of Lord Voltech in the form of a grand finale expansion pack.
Other items planned for Year 3 was a “Lego Minecraft expansion, along with more characters for existing franchises – such as a Missy-themed follow-up to Year One’s popular Doctor Who pack, and the Flash added as another DC Comics character.”
However disappointed I am, I’m still happy that I actually got the chance to own an actual Stay-Puft Marshmallow man minifigure! Which ones were your favourites?
