Arthur Parsons Leaves TT Games

There’s some sad news out of the LEGO games space as Arthur Parsons has left TT Games after 22 years. During his time there, he was their Head of Design and eventually Game Director on many LEGO games. He was pretty the face of LEGO games as he did many interviews on stream during the years talking about various games. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Arthur a few times during San Diego Comic Con and even did a roundtable interview for LEGO Dimensions way back in 2016.

Arthur worked on many LEGO projects at TT Games and some of them are currently available in the Humble Bundle LEGO Built to Bundle charity campaign which will end in seven days.

Good luck to Arthur on his future endeavors.
