LEGO Dimensions Is Officially Dead

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.”

    I still play this game, and I have to say, it´s my favorite game of all time. Not only brought franchises that I tought I would NEVER see on lego (Portal 2, E.T, Teen Titans Go!), but it also brought the toys to life game of lego. I hope it comes back one day.

    I play this game. I have almost all the sets now including both exclusive figures, (super girl and Green arrow). I am super disappointed that they are ending it. I'll play it until I get 100% and then it will likely sit in a corner doing nothing. I've spent so much money on this so far, I'm seriously disappointed. T_T

    Me & my son will carry on playing with the packs that we have & as we have not yet got all the fun packs & figures etc we will continue to collect (if reasonably priced new or second-hand).
