Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of a new title within the LEGO gaming franchise. These games are widely beloved for their accessibility to players of all ages and their unique and entertaining adaptations of beloved franchises such as Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and many others. And now, there’s news on new LEGO Batman 4 and LEGO Mandalorian DLC.
Previous games in the series have received positive reviews, and while they all share a similar formula, it has been refined over time to include more depth and complexity. This allows for more nuanced gameplay and a wider range of activities beyond simply breaking LEGO figures.
According to recent reports, TT Games, the developer behind the LEGO Star Wars series, is working on two new projects, LEGO Batman 4 and DLC for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, based on the popular television series The Mandalorian. These projects have yet to be officially confirmed, but a former employee of the company appeared to confirm the authenticity of the information in a now-deleted tweet.
The comment also stated that the developer has canceled a number of other projects, including a LEGO Disney game. Fans are excited to see the combat in these games evolve further, as seen in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and hope that these projects will bring more depth and complexity to the gameplay.
The last main entry in the LEGO Batman series was released in 2014, and while a spin-off centered around DC supervillains was released in 2018, there has been a significant gap between games in the series. The rumored development of LEGO Batman 4, as reported by PlayStation Lifestyle, is not yet confirmed by TT Games, the developer behind the series, and should be taken as a rumor until official confirmation is made.
Given the gap between games, it is likely that the release date for LEGO Batman 4, if it is in development, will be a few years away.
