More LEGO Franchise Games, TV Show Planned

LEGO Batman and LEGO Star Wars developer Traveller's Tales is planning to produce more LEGO titles based on properties controlled by parent corporation Warner Bros. as well as an upcoming children's television series, the developer has revealed.

As the studio's latest effort LEGO Batman nears its September release on virtually every major platform, Traveller's Tales president Jon Burton told Variety that the company has "gotten started doing some LEGO games [based on Warner properties]."

Properties controlled by the studio's parent include such candidates as Superman and Harry Potter, among others. As for the future, Burton noted that the company may create a children's television show in the future, utilizing technology originally built for Traveller's Tales video game efforts.

"To be able to dabble around in CG and film would be interesting, and Warner allows me to push in those directions without 'quitting the day job,' so to speak," Burton added. "Warner allows me to take a step in that direction, and if I suck? Great, I'll make games."

As part of the company's expansion into the game development and publishing spheres, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment purchased TT Games, which encompassed Traveller's Tales' development and publishing operations, late last year.
