It appears that the LEGO Minifigures Online video game will be ending later this year when the licensing agreement ends in October. Funcom has released their annual report and the numbers did not meet the forecasts of the company, mainly with the lack of players and revenue generated.
The beta version of LEGO Minifigures Online was first introduced in 2013 when it was a free-to-play MMO game model with microtransactions in game. It was then relaunched into a full game in 2015 and it was changed to a buy-to-play business model where you purchase the full game first.
The game had a tie-in with the physical LEGO Collectible Minifigures which included codes to unlock specific minifigures in game, each with their own abilities.
Funcom communicated in the Q3 2014 report that the initial numbers coming in from the first weeks of live data indicated that it would take longer than planned to achieve the internal targets for player and revenue in 2014 and 2015. The Company has during 2015 been unable to improve these numbers. As a result of this the revenues generated by LEGO® Minifigures Online did not meet the internal forecasts. The Company has therefore fully written off the underlying assets of the game. As of the time of this annual report, the Company does not find it likely that any of the game metrics will improve, and has adjusted its investment in the game accordingly. The license agreement with LEGO for the LEGO® Minifigures Online game ends October 2016.
