Year Three is reportedly scrapped.
LEGO Dimensions has reportedly ended a year earlier than planned.
Though Warner Bros. has yet to officially confirm or deny the news, sources close to Eurogamer say that the TT Games-developed series has been cancelled. The publication cites multiple reasons for the cancellation, including the cost of using real LEGO, flagging sales, and the toys-to-life genre falling out of fashion.
If LEGO Dimensions is over, it’s ended during its Year Two cycle, which included ’80s characters like Beetlejuice, Gizmo, and ET. A third year was planned, and reportedly would have featured fan-favourite villain Lord Vortech, a Minecraft expansion, and The Flash, among other characters. Eurogamer also reports that work was being done on a camera that could scan real life LEGO bricks and see them replicated in game, though it was never green-lit for production.
IGN has reached out to Warner Bros. for comment.
LEGO Dimensions was released in 2015, and features a wide cast of characters from Batman and Gandalf to Harry Potter and the Powerpuff Girls.
