TT Games are the makers of the massively successful LEGO games that Warner Bros. IE publishes.
Today, they have setup TT Games Brighton which will create LEGO games solely for mobile. This is a big step towards not just their committment to LEGO games but mobile as a platform. Jason Avent, founder and former head of Boss Alien, will be the Studio Head at TT Games Brighton and he commented on the announcement:
“I love LEGO, and I’m thrilled to be able to create new games encompassing all of the wonderful core values of LEGO, designed and built from the ground up for mobile. Our new titles will be accessible, exciting and of course packed with the trademark TT Games fun and humor. We have an amazing new team of people in Brighton with a wonderful and unique opportunity to bring LEGO to life in a brand-new way.”
Tom Stone, Managing Director at TT Games also commented:
“There is a huge opportunity for LEGO games on mobile. We’re extraordinarily fortunate to have acquired Playdemic in 2016 as a specialist in this area, and they’re working on a new LEGO title in addition to their phenomenally successful ‘Golf Clash.’ Now we can grow our capability even further under the leadership of Jason Avent, founder of Boss Alien and creator of CSR Racing. Jason is one of the world’s most experienced and capable developers in this space, with a passionate affinity for LEGO and an incredibly exciting vision for the new team.”
It will be interesting to see if LEGO games start releasing alongside console versions when the movie or big IP tie ins happen in the future. I also think there’s a big potential market for games like LEGO Worlds on mobile given the success of Minecraft.
