LEGO Dimensions Is Officially Over

After two years spent bringing together characters from 30 different cartoon, television and movie properties in one massive virtual playground, LEGO Dimensions is officially done.

While TT Games will continue to provide server and customer support for the expansive LEGO toys-to-life game, no further expansion sets will be produced for LEGO Dimensions. Official word was delivered today via the official LEGO Dimensions Twitter account.

Originally planned as a three-year cycle, with three seasons of new LEGO sets introducing new entertainment properties to the game, rumours of the game's "cancellation" surfaced earlier this year, following the first couple of waves of LEGO Dimensions' second season. Originally posted on game fansite Bricks to Life and more recently in a post on Eurogamer, slow sales of toy sets coupled with a gruelling, endless development cycle led to the abandonment of plans for a third season of content.

The game had a good run, outlasting the cancelled Disney Infinity and "on hiatus" Skylanders in the toys-to-life genre. One would be hard-pressed to find another game that brought together characters from so many diverse entertainment properties, from Doctor Who to Mission: Impossible, Teen Titans Go! to Sonic: The Hedgehog. And should the servers ever go down, fans who stuck through to the end still have a pretty amazing LEGO collection on their hands.

    Good. Might start collecting year 2 sets now I know I'll be able to essentially 100% the game.

    I love all these Games as a Service nodels that sell you stuff (lootboxes and toys) that only cut their services like this. This is what the third game marketted to kids that done this in recent years. Buyer beware, they can cut services anytime null and voiding your purchases (or a primary function)... the consolation shouldnt be you still have Lego.

    Maybe now I can pick up the portal figures on the cheap.

    I maybe a fan of LEGO but I completely skipped this.

    Aren't the games, etc., still usable once the servers go down or is there some DRM that prevents this?

    I'm strangely happy about this. I might actually consider collecting these now, knowing a complete collection is a possibility.

    Outlasting Disney Infinity isn't really a fair assessment, given that game was released two years prior.
