According to Nintendo Life, four high-profile projects were recently canceled at TT Games. The four big-profile projects that were canceled include the LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy video game, which was said to have been in development for 18 months, a mobile version of LEGO Worlds. This non-LEGO shooter will feature a lot of Warner Bros. characters and a Diablo-like Disney game featuring characters from throughout the company’s history. The report also states that a new LEGO Batman video game and a Mandalorian narrative content DLC for Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga have been put on hold.

Although there may have been many reasons for these cancellations, Nintendo Life claims that the main reason was to increase resources for the development of, a new LEGO Harry Potter title. Although Nintendo Life’s report does not provide much information about this game, it does say that it is being developed on a scale similar to The Skywalker Saga. This could mean multiple open-world hubs and missions that span across the entire franchise as well as hundreds of playable characters.

It is probably a smart decision to invest all of the studio’s resources in a new LEGO Harry Potter video game. Despite the controversy surrounding it, the Hogwarts Heritage has sold over 12,000,000 copies within its first two weeks. It has continued to sell extremely well ever since. The Harry Potter IP remains incredibly lucrative. Warner Bros. will want to make as much money as possible from this success, which could mean that they put pressure on TT Games for a LEGO Harry Potter video game.

The studio will likely put all its heart and soul into making the best LEGO Harry Potter games. TT Games had released a few behind-the-scenes videos before LEGO Star Wars was released. Each one revealed the passion of the team for the Star Wars IP. This is a big reason The Skywalker Saga was so enjoyable to play. It was a game that was built by fans for fans. Fans can rest assured that the team behind this LEGO Harry Potter is as passionate as TT Games.

LEGO Star Wars are available for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, and Xbox One.
