Earlier this morning, Ten Ton Hammer broke the news that LEGO Universe
had strayed away from its release plans and is now delayed, according
to LEGO Group’s Mark Hansen, “for some
time.” Luckily, it sounds like
the game was delayed for business rather than gameplay or content
reasons. Ten Ton Hammer’s Cody Bye had the initial scoop, and
presents his entire discussion with the LEGO director. Two brand new
LEGO Universe images are also included. Please enjoy!
Ten Ton Hammer: We've heard about a variety of LEGO sets that are going into the game, including the medieval and pirate ship sets. Are we ever going to see some of the other IPs make it into the LEGO universe? LEGO Star Wars or Batman or Indiana Jones?
Mark: I'm going to say that you're probably not going to see any IPs in the LEGO Universe in the first year of launch. After that, many things could happen.
We want to launch the game, in the beginning, as LEGO. After that, whatever is in the realm of the LEGO physical products we'll be looking to add into the game if at all possible.
