Warner Bros. reportedly dismantles LEGO Dimensions

Toy-to-Life crossover series comes to a close

Although yet to be officially confirmed, it has fast become common knowledge that Warner Bros. Interactive is canning the LEGO Dimensions series of games, which combined LEGO toys based on popular franchises with video games to create digital worlds and adventures.

The toys-to-life trend, which raked in a fortune mere years back, as slowly died a death in recent years. Disney Infinity called it a day after their new Star Wars wave failed to take off, and Skylanders, once a absolute behemoth, has retreated somewhat since their last game, Imaginators, failed to match number from earlier releases.

TT Games' LEGO Dimensions was originally envisioned as a three-year project, but appears to be closing up shop after two. The news leaked out through a studio-wide email sent to TT Games staff from studio head David Dootson. "Thanks so much to everyone for making Dimensions possible," wrote Dootson. "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"

Sad news as another team closes up shop on a labour-of-love project. This leaves Nintendo's amiibo range as the only major toys-to-life product still standing, in what was once a ridiculously lucrative, money-printing market.
