We’ve talked about this back in March but it looks like LEGO Dimensions has been officially cancelled. A source that is close to to TT Games has told Eurogamer that the game is over and done, a year earlier than expected. There isn’t expected to be an official announcement as it seems that TT Games wants it to be silently cancelled. This news was first talked about by Bricks to Life back in March as well.
A reason for the game being going away is that the sales for the Year 2 content did not meet expectations as the whole toys-to-life genre has been slowly fading away. One interesting tidbid is that some of the Year 3 content included Lord Vortech to round out the story. Some other planned expansions included LEGO Minecraft, another Doctor Who pack to feature Missy, and DC Comics Super Heroes Flash. The company also had an idea to have a camera scan a LEGO build and replicate them in the game but this idea was shot down.
TT Games studio manager Dave Dootson sent a memo to the company when it was for sure the LEGO Dimensions was cancelled:
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.
LEGO Dimensions has good while it lasted and many fans did have a good time with it. What was your favorite memory of LEGO Dimensions?
