LEGO Dimensions, Warner Bros. Toys-to-Life game, has officially ended a year earlier than expected.
LEGO Dimensions began it’s short life in 2015 arriving after the likes of Disney Infinity and Skylanders. Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment intended to give the game three years worth of content, but that has officially been canned. Today, after two years on the market, LEGO Dimensions is being brought to a close.
Server and customer support will continue for the game, but developer TT Games will no longer be developing new expansion sets or content for the game. The announcement was made via Twitter:
From building and rebuilding to the most bricktacular mash-ups, the Multiverse would be nothing without our amazing community. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/NEDbBXqjyZ

LEGO Dimensions had a good run, adding in over thirty different franchises across it’s two years of existence. These included Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Scooby Doo, Jurassic World, DC Comics, The Wizard of Oz, and Doctor Who among many others. However, the Toys-to-Life genre has been in decline for some time, and, according to Eurogamer, the cost of producing the LEGO figures was becoming unsustainable. With Disney Infinity cancelled and Skylanders on a hiatus, it only seemed like a matter of time before LEGO Dimensions suffered a similar fate.
That isn’t to say all LEGO games are cancelled. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is currently scheduled for release on November 14, and we’re sure more LEGO titles will be released going forward.
