The writing may be on the wall for LEGO Dimensions, the collaboration between the LEGO Group and TT games that combines physical brick play with a video game experience.

Bricks to Life is reporting rumours from ‘trusted sources’ that once the year two content has been released, LEGO Dimensions will wind down, with the intended year three (and possibly some of the late year two content) never making it to market. The article does note that, as always, nothing is certain until an official announcement is made, but makes it clear that one should be expected at some point.

Additional evidence cited includes some of the unknown slots for further expansion being removed as part of an in-game update, LEGO Dimensions shunted to the bottom of the TT Games meeting agenda and developers within the company are being moved to work on other titles.

Disney Infinity, the other big toys-to-life game based on an existing IP closed down last year – this was seen as possible boon to LEGO Dimensions, but some industry experts warned of it signalling an end to this gaming submarket.

The Bricks to Life report reminds readers that originally, LEGO Dimensions promised three years of content with just one starter pack, to counter the impression that Disney Infinity and Skylanders had left years with when a new pack was required on an annual basis. Even without that repeated expense, it seems buying packs ranging in price from £14.99 to £39.99 to expand the game proved too much for gift buyers and collectors.

It’s disappointing news for fans of the expansive game, but Bricks to life offer a little sugar at the end of the article, suggesting that Lord Vortech may finally be coming in physical as well as playable form before the year is out.

If be pretty happy about that. The packs are too expensive and i want a sonic and gremlins just for the minifigs alone.

It's a shame, but a blessing for parents at the same time. These games are just equivalent to some really expensive and seemingly never ending DLC. Parents are obviously getting wise to it. I've no idea how much we spent on skylanders in the first couple of years, but it got more than a bit ridiculous. Just glad ours grew out of it!

...I was just considering buying the Doctor Who packs as well.

Well, yes, at some point.

Ok, I'm totally clueless but just got the Lego dimensions starter kits on offer for my sons birthday in July. Should I take this back while I can or will the game still be worth having? Sorry but I've got no idea how this thing actually works!

Still worth having. If it's discontinued you can probably expect a massive reduction on the sets sometime in the not too distant future.

I'm surprised this "toys to life" fad is coming to a end. You would think theres enough clueless parents who never stop buying these so maybe the cost to produce outweight the revenue? Either way something to celebrate!
#10
Eh too expensive and the pieces are designed for you to lose.
#11
If you parents haven't already, I'd highly recommend (pc, Xbox one and ps4) you buy Lego Worlds for their console. It's co-op, £18, has tonnes of content and should keep them happy without the need for short, expensive dlc. The toys to life genre was such a cool idea but Activision rinsed it out like guitar hero and it has gone too far.
#12
Quite surprised they'd bring it to an end, it seems to be quite a cash cow due to being so popular with kids and adults. Certainly more film or tv themes they could have used.

Interesting to see how prices go, may either nose dive or rocket up!
#13
Prices keep going up and down for the level packs etc.
e.g. Pretty much all the packs were BOGOF around Christmas, Sainsbury's are doing 3 for 2 at the moment.
Otherwise they are far too expensive.

Quite a variation in price on the starter packs between stores as well. Only reason my daughter has it is that she got the X360 one for £32 from Tesco with her birthday money last November or December. I certainly wouldn't have let her spend the £58 or whatever it is now.

Bought it day one, built it, played for a few weeks, took it apart and never played again. Also it's too expensive for the add on packs although I understand they are on sale.

As with all these kind of things it was a nice idea but unless you are willing to throw money at it for all the packs it's one of those things that's a novelty for a while and it once you're done with it then it probably won't get used and either gather dust on the side or get put in a box to be forgotten about.

I hope it doesn't. Me and my partner really enjoy the game. Albeit we've not played it for about 6 weeks due to moving and still having boxes left to unpack, so no gaming has been done at all. We own many of the packs and just find it a lot of fun.

I hope it does.

So if it closes does that mean existing games will no longer work? I.e. the game is not dependent on an external server to play is it?

Why? I'm assuming the only reason you'd hope something that people enjoy comes to an end, is because you're a parent who's kid(s) want all the add ons/extras? And it stopping will stop them asking for them.

I know there was some problems with updates/patches, so a lot of people would play it with their console offline. So if it can run offline ok, then it's fine!
