Earlier reports about the Lego Dimensions series ending were in fact, true, and no more packs will be developed, ending the three-year cycle of content one year shy. For now, you can still purchase packs and continue playing the game with servers getting support into the future.
While there is no concrete evidence that Lego Dimensions is going the way of the Dodo, word around the internet and other publications are that Warner Bros. Interactive is ready to put the kibosh on their Lego Dimensions series, which combined Lego toys and popular franchises into one place allowing for new and exciting ways to explore.
Only a few years ago, the toy craze was real and between the Skylanders series, the Disney Infinity series, and Lego Dimensions, there was a lot of viable options to partake in the craze. Disney Infinity was canceled promptly and the reported Star Wars series and new Marvel toys were scrapped, shuttering the studio in the process.
Lego Dimensions is the last of the bunch, with Skylanders failing to meet the craze it once had. News leaked through an internal email sent out from studio head David Dootson, canceling the series a year premature in its three-year phase for the series.
“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”
Sad to see the series go, we’ve enjoyed covering the waves of toys as they’ve released and they have provided a ton of fun. This only really leaves the amiibo series from Nintendo available.
