TT Games is still working on its next big LEGO video game

The LEGO Group may have terminated its exclusivity agreement with TT Games, but the studio is still working on its next LEGO video game – which is based on ‘a major IP’.

According to recent rumours, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be TT Games’ last LEGO video game under its current contract, which the LEGO Group has elected not to extend following reports of poor working conditions at the studio. That hasn’t stopped the studio from pressing on with its first post-Skywalker Saga title, however, which was initially confirmed through job listings in August 2021.

A fresh posting on WarnerMedia’s careers page calls for an experienced Senior Combat Designer to work on ‘an exciting new LEGO game based on a major IP’, echoing the language used in developer job listings last year. The new game will apparently be designed in Unreal rather than NTT, the proprietary game engine built for The Skywalker Saga, which is said to have been at the root of several development issues on the saga-spanning sequel.

The Senior Combat Designer will be responsible for designing and implementing the new game’s melee and ranged combat system, which includes character-specific abilities and enemy behaviour. That suggests it may not be using the same tried and tested combat system we’ve seen in previous LEGO video games, nor the new system introduced in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

This latest listing follows a recent recruitment drive by TT Games, following the departure of several high-profile staff members – including founder Jon Burton – who left to set up their own studio, the slyly-named 10:10 Games, in 2021. There are currently 17 separate vacancies at TT Games, all accessible through WarnerMedia’s careers site.

The identity of the ‘major IP’ on which the new game is based has yet to be confirmed, but there are plenty of potential candidates even among TT Games’ existing library of titles. Marvel, DC, Indiana Jones, Jurassic World and Harry Potter are all probable contenders, particularly with one eye on the current LEGO portfolio, although it could also be something entirely new.

Whatever the case, building the game in another engine means it will likely feel completely different to LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. You’ll finally be able to play that long-awaited – and much-delayed – game from April 5, which is now less than a week away. Get ready by pre-ordering your copy now, then checking out everything you need to know about the game over on our dedicated hub.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.

    I truly hope this game won’t end up disappointing like the hobbit one was where they left it unfinished. Still pisses me off to this day that the promised a dlc for the last movie and then decided to “not move ahead with the undertaking”.
