Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and LEGO recently announced the extension of their contract, licensing the studio’s subsidiary Traveller’s Tales to make games in the brand’s distinctive yellow brick style until 2016. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Star Wars III: The Clone Wars are the next games coming under the contract.
“The Lego Group is a brilliant and trusted organization with an extremely loyal fan base,” said Kevin Tsujihara, president, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group. “We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to continue the successful partnership between this legendary company and the talented TT Games, which will enable us to further expand our slate of widely recognized, family-friendly games.”
“One of the things that sets Lego brand apart is that it allows kids to express their creativity, and the games we develop with TT Games are not just great fun but also inspire kids to play with their Lego bricks, exploring our different play themes more deeply,” said 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.”
