From the Rumor Mill: Possible List of Cancelled LEGO Dimensions Year 3 Titles

Cancelled LEGO Dimensions Year 3 Titles

It has been almost a year since the sad end of the LEGO Dimensions theme was officially announced by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Many forces were at play during this time which left the once booming toys-to-life genre eventually helpless against the tide of low consumer demand. The final wave of LEGO Dimensions sets, dubbed as Year 2 or Wave 9 titles, consists mainly of characters coming from Teen Titans GO!, the Powerpuff Girls, and the 80s comedy-horror icon, Beetlejuice. With the unfortunate cancellation and end of development for LEGO Dimensions, it now seems that any future sets that were rumored to be part of a Year 3 series are now eventually canned. It was common knowledge among game developers and those that were closely working in developing future LEGO Dimensions packs, that LEGO has already planned things ahead, with projects that were actually in the middle of development before the unpopular decision from the LEGO Group came out. Without the intention of showing disrespect to game developers or insensitivity towards the LEGO Dimensions community in general, toys-to-life authority, Bricks to Life, came up with a report that summarizes every intel that it gathered on what this cancelled LEGO Dimensions Year 3 titles could have been.

Again, we don’t intend to show any disrespect or whatsoever, but as Bricks to Life puts it, “…this is now nothing more than preserving history”. This rumor is speculative at its best, but as the report goes, is a result of thorough collection of lists of franchises and properties coming from a whole assortment of sources: “bits of leftover code, secured LEGO licensing rights, plus bread crumb clues from people who worked on the game.” We will roughly categorize this into four types, based on the target audience that these rumored sets could have intended. Remember: please take this list of supposedly cancelled LEGO Dimensions Year 3 titles as plainly as it is, a rumor. Unless the LEGO Group will confirm this, then please do take this with a grain of salt.

  1. I confess to love, Love, LOVING LEGO Dimensions to the point that from the second it was first released until it was cancelled, I played nothing but LEGO Dimensions! To hear that ones I REALLY wanted to be added might have been in the works makes me incredibly sad!! Smurfs! Looney Tunes! Pirates of the Caribbean! How to train your Dragon!
    Universal Monsters (Werewolf, Dracula, Frankenstein, etc.) Avatar! I wish Harry Potter, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, LEGO City had been added and I was hopeful they would have been!
