As far as ‘Toys To Life’ products go, LEGO Dimensions is arguably one of the most popular games out there, with cross-console support and a whole host of brands and characters to choose from. The coupling of toy giant LEGO with video game giant Warner Bros. was a match made in heaven, and one that many fans hope will continue for some time.
Right at the beginning of the range, we were promised 3 years of product – something which was rebuffed at both the Year 1 and Year 2 press tours – which would take us right through into 2018. Rather worryingly, things have been very quiet regarding the future of the range. Many fans who visited the recent E3 gaming Expo, were confidant that something would be announced at the LEGO Dimensions panels, but instead, Warner Bros. discussed Wave 9 [Due out: 15th September] which includes The Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans Go! and Beetlejuice.
With rumours of a quiet cancellation abound, ToysWorld got in touch with Warner Bros. Games to see if there was any hope for the future, and we got a reply:
“We are excited to provide new LEGO Dimensions products this year while we continue to look at the future product slate.”
We also asked if there was any possibility of the game reaching the Nintendo Switch console, but it doesn’t look likely at this stage:
“There are currently no plans to bring LEGO Dimensions to Nintendo Switch.”
The only take away we can garner from this is that there is still clearly some hope, and the fact they haven’t outright said “No!”, could mean that there is still a possibility we may get some new content. “Future product slate” certainly seems to suggest that things for 2018 are not yet fixed, so we all have our fingers crossed!
