LEGO Dimensions is no more, with the companies involved deciding not to expand the series any more. The current packs, both starters and expansions, will continue to be supported, but no new expansions will be produced. This means LEGO Dimensions fans are stuck with what they’ve got.
For the uninitiated, LEGO Dimensions is an infinitely expandable video game featuring characters and worlds from a number of famous franchises. You buy a Starter Pack, and can then buy expansion packs complete with minifigs which add new characters, missions, buildings, vehicles, and more.
Stuck Playing the Same Expansions
Unfortunately for anyone previously unaware of LEGO Dimensions but intrigued by the idea, its time is coming to an end, as the developers are calling it quits. The three companies involved in the development and production of LEGO Dimensions issued a statement via Twitter saying:
“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.”
This is a kick in the teeth for fans of LEGO Dimensions, who will have built up quite a collection at this point. However, it looks as though there just wasn’t enough interest in the myriad of weird and wonderful expansion packs to justify carrying on. Still, at least it outlived Disney Infinity.
All Good Things Must Come to an End
All good things must come to an end, and LEGO Dimensions is no exception. Still, with Warner Bros. et al promising to provide support for the foreseeable future, there’s no need to abandon LEGO Dimensions quite yet. It just means you have no new expansion packs to look forward to playing.
