Warner Bros. ends the series early ahead of the promised third year
After months of speculation and rumors, Warner Bros. and TT Games have finally made the early end of LEGO Dimensions official.
The toys-to-life game originally released on Sept. 27, 2015 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U and was supposed to have three years of new expansions for the single starter pack, which included the game, Batman, WildStyle (from the LEGO Movie) and Gandalf (from Lord of the Rings) as well as the base and the Batmobile. It originally retailed for $99.99.
Later versions were released that included exclusive Super Girl and Green Lantern figures as well as one that came with the Ninjago figure, Lloyd.
The second year content had its most recent release (and what is now the final release of new packs) in September with the addition of PowerPuff Girls, Teen Titans Go! and Beetlejuice. The game also saw large expansions with full stories for Ghostbusters 2016, LEGO Batman Movie and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
It had been long rumored and speculated that the series would end early after a series of events that you can read more about here and here. There were rumors that the game’s main story’s villain Lord Vortech would get a toy, but that never happened. Other rumored expansions were The Flash and Minecraft.
In a statement to IGN, TT Games, Warner Bros. and LEGO said, “Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group would like to thank fans for their ongoing support of LEGO Dimensions. After careful consideration, we will not be producing new expansion packs for the game beyond what is now available. We will continue to provide ongoing server and customer support for all LEGO Dimensions packs. Existing packs will continue to work interchangeably and will remain available for purchase.”
