Lego Dimensions Could Go On For At Least Three Years


Last weekend at EGX 2015, Mark Warburton of developer TT Games, the studio that created Lego Dimensions for WB Interactive, told reporters they intend to support the game for a long time. At least until 2018, he hopes.

“We have a three year plan at the moment and we’ve got no intention of stopping there,” Warburton said to the website Eurogamer. “We’ve created the technology to the degree that we’re happy it meets our needs for the future. We’ve created the toy pad so that it shouldn’t need to be updated. And we can just create new level and character packs to keep expanding that.”

Whether Lego Dimensions actually continues to the end of this decade depends on how well this initial wave sells, which just hit the market two days ago. The current lineup includes Lego-ized characters from all sorts of properties, including Batman, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Portal, The Wizard of Oz, The Simpsons, Ghostbusters, The Lego Movie, Scooby-Doo and Jurassic World. Figures of the characters can be purchased separately and can interact with the game when placed on the Lego portal, similar in fashion to Skylanders and all the other toy-to-game franchises that have become so popular in recent years.

On the occasion of the launch of Lego Dimensions, WB Interactive has released a new trailer featuring an actor interacting with the toys, this time Alison Brie (who voices Unikitty in both The Lego Movie and this game).
