Warner Bros. Announces Six More Years Of Lego Games

Warner Bros. announced today it will be renewing its partnership with TT Games to continue making LEGO games through 2016. If you’re asking yourself why they continue to make an endless stream of LEGO games, the answer is the franchise has already sold nearly 50 million units worldwide. If you’re asking yourself why people to continue to buy LEGO games, the answer is because they’re usually quite good.

“One of the things that sets the LEGO brand apart is that it allows kids to express their creativity...” says Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, vice president of LEGO Digital. “We are very excited to continue to work with TT Games because they take a distinctive approach to making games creative, social and non-violent, which makes them a valuable part of the broader LEGO experience.”

The press release didn't name any new titles, but reiterated that LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will be out this year. If LEGO games continue down the path of allowing players to create their own objects and worlds out of digital building blocks, I’m all for it. Besides, by 2016 we’ll all probably be driving cars built out of LEGOs anyway.
