TT Games today announced that its LEGO Dimensions toys-to-life line has been discontinued. No further expansions packs for the game will be released, though servers will remain up and customer service will still be available for a time. September saw the release of The Powerpuff Girls, Beetlejuice and Teen Titans Go! figures, which are the game’s final addon packs.

LEGO Dimensions is a toys-to-life game, meaning that it comes with a USB-powered miniature pedestal that allows players to spawn digital versions of action figures in the game when the figure is placed on the pedestal. A variety of franchises lent their likenesses to LEGO Dimensions, like Ghostbusters, Harry Potter and DC Comics.
Figure packs will still be available for purchase, and the discontinuation of the toy line will not affect players’ abilities to use their figures in-game for the time being. The announcement marks an uncertain time for the toys-to-life genre, which has seen several of its major players back out of the games space over the past several years, the most prominent of which being the discontinuation of the Disney Infinity line last year.
At present, the only toys-to-life product lines remaining are Toys For Bob’s Skylanders game series, Nintendo’s Amiibo and PlayFusion’s Lightseekers Awakening. TT Games did not give a solid reason for ending their LEGO Dimensions line.
