Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The Lego Group announced today that the toys-to-life adventure game that brought together Lego versions of their most popular properties won’t receive any further expansions.
From building and rebuilding to the most bricktacular mash-ups, the Multiverse would be nothing without our amazing community.

“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The Lego Group would like to thank fans for their ongoing support of Lego Dimensions,” an official statement posted to Twitter reads. “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.”
It feels like yesterday that LEGO Dimensions announced their new interactive toy line. Lego Dimensions launched just over two years ago. for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, which made a relative latecomer in the Interactive toys market. But leave it to LEGO to create a dedicated and loyal fan base surrounding the product.
What made it so popular was the fact that it brought with it the ability to create your own cross-over universes with the likes of The Lego Movie, Portal 2, Jurassic World, Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings and many more. The companies later expanded the game with new Lego toys and level packs based on Adventure Time, Doctor Who, Gremlins, Harry Potter, Knight Rider, The Goonies, The Wizard of Oz, just to name a few.
It is sad to see another brand like LEGO Dimensions get the ax. With Disney Infinity getting cancelled last year, where does this leave the interactive toy market? Well it looks like the market is securely Activision's Skylander brand for the time being. It doesn't look like we'll be seeing any new brands hit the market anytime soon.
