Harry Potter Lego, no go in ’09; previous Lego games may be revisited
You’ve got the Star Wars franchise, Batman, and Indiana Jones – all of them getting their own multiplatform Lego treatment for the past few years. And just last month, talks of a Harry Potter Lego ran rampant, with Warner giving a “no comment” response to the rumors. Now, it’s been revealed that, whether or not Traveller’s Tales really is Lego-fying Hogwarts, it definitely won’t happen next year. Meanwhile, they might just throw us a new (err, newly recycled?) Lego game instead.
You’ve got the Star Wars franchise, Batman, and Indiana Jones – all of them getting their own multiplatform Lego treatment for the past few years. And now, the torch may be passed to someone new.
Ever since Warner Bros. (the same guys who are taking the Harry Potter series to the silver screen) bought Traveller’s Tales, one of the biggest franchises on every body’s mind to get the next Lego treatment is Harry Potter. And the last we heard from Warner about this is that infamous “no comment” response.
Unfortunately, a source close to TT has already confirmed to Eurogamer that a Lego Harry Potter is definitely not coming out in 2009. (Too bad the source didn’t confirm either if a Lego Harry Potter will indeed be released post-2009.) Meanwhile, Loz Doyle, producer at TT, hints that a previous Lego title might get another release.
You never know. There’s always the possibility that we would revisit a franchise. And you never know, it might not be the end of Star Wars, it might not be the end of Indy – we keep our options open.
Here’s a clincher though. Another producer, Nick Ricks this time, does confirm that “There will be a Lego game in 2009. And I think it’s okay to say that you’ll be a bit surprised.” Now whether or not it’s that rumored Rock Band Lego, we’ll just have to wait and see.
