In an interview with Gamespot, Warner Bros revealed that there won't be a The Battle of the Five Armies expansion release for LEGO The Hobbit. Meaning that fans will just have to live with 2/3rds of the LEGO-ized trilogy. Fans originally thought that games would release in coordination with the Peter Jackson movies, but it doesn't look like that's the case after all.

Warner Bros has not officially canceled The Battle of the Five Armies. It has merely stated that there are no plans to develop Five Armies as DLC. However, the company has also confirmed that it doesn't have plans to develop Five Armies as a stand-alone LEGO game based on the film. I guess technically, you can't cancel something that wasn't in development in the first place.

The official statement from Warner Bros is:

"The LEGO The Hobbit videogame gives LEGO and Middle-earth fans a fun, new way to experience the legendary adventures of Bilbo and company as told in the first two films of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy."

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies releases in theaters this December.
