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," said Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group president Kevin Tsujihara.
"One of the things that sets the 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. 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," said LEGO Digital vice president Henrik Taudorf Lorensen.
"We look forward to carrying on our excellent collaboration with the LEGO Group in building extraordinary LEGO videogame franchises, with both Warner Bros. and third party IP, that continue to resonate with consumers.
