Warner Bros and Traveller's Tales have been suspiciously quiet about the future of LEGO Dimensions recently.
Originally promised with a three year release schedule, LEGO Dimensions instead has received some of its year 2 content in year 3. Games show E3 came and went without any new LEGO Dimensions content announced with only a short amount of time set aside to show the already revealed packs at the WB Live event.
Today came the announcement of the LEGO Ninjago Movie videogame which would be a stand-alone game for current generation consoles only (Dimensions still supports Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii-U), unlike previous LEGO movie outing The LEGO Batman Movie. You can see the trailer below:
It's a difficult situation for Warner Bros as an official announcement would likely affect sales of the remaining packs (wave 9 is due for release on 15th September), but at this point we would be surprised if LEGO Dimensions makes it through to 2018.
