Followup: New Report Says No LEGO Harry Potter this Year

Video Games

A followup today on an earlier report regarding a possible new LEGO Harry Potter game due in 2009. Eurogamer is now reporting that this is not likely as "a senior source working close to Traveller's Tales has told us that LEGO Harry Potter is off the menu for at least 12 months. However, Eurogamer understands that a new installment of LEGO Indiana Jones is looking likely."

The article continues: "Harry Potter has been viewed as an obvious candidate for the LEGO treatment since Warner, which makes the Potter movies, bought Traveller's Tales in November 2007. Electronic Arts will release a game based on the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie due this summer, and its deal with Warner could have an impact on the development of any additional Potter-branded games in the short term.

...Producer Nick Ricks added: "There will be a LEGO game in 2009. And I think it's okay to say that you'll be a bit surprised."

I don’t like the lego games but I would buy the HP one if it looked any good. I could imagine them taking out the seriousness and make it something like them laughing when like Dobby starts bleeding to death.

I really want the Lego Harry Potter I love the Lego games they are so awesome!!!! I really hope they make it. What source material are they goign to be using to create another Indiana Jones game, they only have the one movie left and then the TV series, are they going to make a game based from the TV series? Or just make up adventures? I will just have to wait to find out I guess.

Maybe when all the movies and respective video-games have been launched… then warner will consider a LEGO harry potter game. It would be a nice way to squeeze some more money out of the HP franchise.

Launching a LEGO HP now would only cause the warner guys to fight against themselves on the game industry.

disappointing. i’ve heard that the lego games are good, and considering the poor gameplay and general boringness of the other hp games, i was hoping for a satisfying hp game experience. maybe someday they’ll make a hp game that isn’t aimed at small children, or spend as much time developing good controls as they do trying to replicate dan radcliffe as a video game character.

wimper wimper… I want my LEGO.

::Sigh:: oh well, I guess it means I can keep looking for those cheap deals for the ones I don’t have on Ebay. (rare as they are, you can find the Hogwarts Castle for close to the original price if you know where to look)
