A new rumor claims that Warner Bros. Games has scrapped many video games that were in the works at its subsidiary developer, TT Games.
Nintendolife said that numerous sources had confirmed the studio’s decision to stop several projects. Project Marley, a Lego Disney game that would have featured worlds from The Jungle Book, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Winnie the Pooh, was one such game.
The player would switch between an overworld and themed dungeons in the project, which claimed to have been abandoned in 2022. They would fight to purge the world of a purple corrupting force while exploring; this plot has subsequently been incorporated into Gameloft’s popular Disney Dreamlight Valley game.
The article also mentioned the discontinuation of “Project Cosmos,” a Lego Guardians of the Galaxy video game. Several Warner Bros. IPs would have been combined in a “Project Rainbow Road” shooter. Regrettably, it used the Funko license, which 10:10 Games later gained. Last but not least, Playdemic’s initial Lego Worlds mobile port appears to have been abandoned.
TT Games are also still in trouble. The Lego Skywalker Saga’s story-focused Mandalorian Expansion is reportedly “in jeopardy” at the company. At the same time, a Lego Batman game has been shelved, according to the report.
According to the article, the main cause of the cancellations and delays is that TT Games’ resources are being devoted to a much bigger undertaking: giving the Lego Harry Potter series the Skywalker Saga treatment.
Employees of TT Games have spoken out frequently about the tight working circumstances at the studio due to the tense climate surrounding the creation of The Skywalker Saga. Since then, things have started to get better, according to the staff. Nonetheless, news of such significant project changes presents a turbulent studio picture.
