Rumor: Lego Harry Potter on the Horizon?

Nothing grows more during a slow news day that a wild, baseless rumor, but they’re still just so entertaining to hear about. CVG is now speculating that the next licensed property to be given the “Lego video game” treatment will be the Harry Potter series. They stumbled along this little tidbit of information, and so they’re now trying to confirm it with Warner Bros.

Even though EA owns the rights to make PC and console game’s tied into the movies, it’s hard to say if that agreement encompasses Lego versions as well. At any rate, Traveller’s Tales must certainly be looking for a new property to tap after the success of their Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman outings. Shouldn’t be too hard: turn everything in Hogwarts into bricks, add a few co-op puzzles, throw in a dash of wordless, goofy cut-scenes, and you’re done. These Lego games practically make themselves.

Curious choice. Chamber of Secrets already got the Lego treatment back in ’02 as part of the Lego Creator series.
