This is not LEGO news directly but Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced Michael Denny as the Vice President and Studio Head of TT Games. He will be oversee strategy, execution and business operations for all TT Games offices and its portfolio of titles, including the best-selling LEGO videogame franchise. He will also introduce a new vision for the company which should be good news.
Maybe with this new appointment, Denny will bring new ideas to the table including new ideas to the already popular LEGO video games. After playing through the last few, they do get somewhat repetitive but the stories for them are top notch.
As we all know by now, the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga video is their next big project and we basically haven’t heard of any new information since June and there hasn’t even been a release date announced for it. It is supposedly coming out this year but with the whole pandemic situation, I won’t be surprised if it gets delayed.
