Lego Dimensions, the toys-to-life adventure game that brought together Lego versions of DC superheroes, The Lord of the Rings, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Simpsons, Harry Potter and other properties, won’t receive any further expansions, publisher Warner Bros. announced today.

“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The Lego Group would like to thank fans for their ongoing support of Lego Dimensions,” an official statement posted to Twitter reads. “After careful consideration, we will not be producing new expansion packs for the game beyond what is now available. We will continue to provide ongoing server and customer support for all Lego Dimensions packs. Existing packs will continue to work interchangeably and will remain available for purchase.”

Lego Dimensions launched just over two years ago. The game, which was released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, was a relative latecomer in the then-burgeoning toys-to-life space, but it quickly found a dedicated audience.

Warner Bros. and developer TT Games brought Lego Dimensions to market with a cast of characters that drew from The Lego Movie, Back to the Future, Portal 2, Jurassic World, The Lord of the Rings and Scooby-Doo. The companies later expanded the game with new Lego toys and level packs based on Adventure Time, Doctor Who, Gremlins, Harry Potter, Knight Rider, The Goonies, The Wizard of Oz and more.

Some of the game’s most recent expansions include content based on The Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans Go!
