Traveller's Tales assembling Lego Harry Potter, Indy 2?

What we heard: Traveller's Tales may not have hit critical gold with the September 2008 release of Lego Batman, but the title certainly delivered, financially. Since its September 2008 release, the studio's Dark Knight parody has sold northward of 2 million copies in the US alone, according to data provided by the NPD Group. With Lego Indiana Jones putting up similar numbers in the US not three months before, it stands to reason that Warner Bros. Interactive and its wholly owned UK studio are keen on pumping out as many Lego titles as possible.

And, of course, that appears to be the case, if a recently unearthed online resume for a current Traveller's Tales employee is to be believed. As spotted by VG247, an animator with the studio reportedly listed in her CV that she was "currently working as a Cutscene Animator on LEGO Harry Potter & LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull which are both in the early stages of production."

The statement has since been removed, but not before the animator went ahead and confirmed the validity of her resume listings. "That's right," she told VG247, in response to whether she was at work on the projects. "But they're not confirmed. I can't really talk about them."

This is not the first time that Traveller's Tales has been mentioned in the same breath as Lego Harry Potter. In December, UK gaming news site CVG said that it had confirmed with sources that Warner Bros. and Traveller's Tales were in the process of piecing together the boy wizard and his Hogwarts cohorts, though no further details were revealed.

The official story: "No comment."--A Warner Bros. Interactive representative.

Bogus or not bogus?: Looking not bogus on both counts.

Shhh, Igor! Don't give them any more ideas! :D Actually I wouldn't mind so much if they were working on a game.

I've got 100% in all the lego games. I will get anyone which comes out except lego rock band. lego harry potter might do the first 4 books [ 8 films ] or maybe got halfway through the 4 th one and split it exactly in two. either way it should be good but in other lego games characters have special abilities eg R2D2 opening doors but in this surely most characters will have similar spells. unless each person has a speciality spell

LEGO HP would probably rock. And LEGO Indy 2 would probably suck...

I think they will Lego-fy Hannah Montana after the movie was released.

To ScorpSt: If they waited until the 7th movie was out hey woul have to wait until like 2013 because th 6th one is coming out in june or July and they have said that they are making the 7th book into 2 movies so that they can fitt in ever last bit of info from the book. And yes I am a big Harry Potter nerd.

I hope they make the Lego Harry Potter, but hopefully they'll wait to come out with it until the 7th movie, that way they can have all 7 books in one game. That would be awesome. I have to say that a Lego Indiana Jones based on "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" would be a horrible idea. First of all, it's just one movie. Second, it was a horrible movie. That's about all I got. I do think it's safe to say we can expect a number of additional Lego properties. Just to throw a few out there: Lego Star Trek, Lego Spider-Man, Lego Buffy the Vampire Slayer...

Howabout an M rated Lego Halloween or Fri. 13th? Little red lego blood-blocks squirting everywhere...

How about they just make a Lego game within the Lego product lines? A Lego exo-force game or something. There would be way more freedom in the story or level design like in Lego I i

I love every single lego game thats out! Lego Harry Potter would be fun because they could have a quidiitch level. And instead of making another lego indy, they shopuld just make it downloadeble content. One more thing, MAKE A LEGO LORD OF THE RINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

I liked Lego star wars the best and i also liked lego batman but i thought lego indiana jones was just a bit dull. plus indiana jones 2 kingdom of the crystal skull would maybe be a bit short, but there better be a lego harry potter because EAs harry potter games suck.

As fun as the others are, what made the Lego SW games better than Indiana Jones or Batman were the added Force powers. Lego HP will be AWESOME because of the spells. Can't wait!!

lego Harry potter series would work if the used the first six books, much like 6 chapters in lego batman, and six movies in lego star wars. Then they would have 5 missions each and movie fillers and cutscenes in between. This would work perfectly becuase if they threw in the 7th book, without the movie, itd give away the ending with a lego feel and twist, that wouldnt be cool. But for sure a lego Harry potter game should be in the works. I would definitely purchase that game regardless of the $60 price tag.

I still need to pick up the Lego Star Wars collection.

I'm usually a hard-core gamer, but those damn lego games are my guilty pleasure. You keep making them, I'll keep buying them and hoping no one notices JUST how many are on my gamertag.

Lego Harry Potter is the only other IP that has a legitimate chance of making more money than the Star Wars themed lego games.

The Lego Harry Potter game is a no-brainer. Even if it's only halfway-decent, it'll be a monster hit.

the lego games were fun, had lots of humor, and some good puzzles, but absolutely zero challenge. SW the complete saga was very easy and all that was left to do was busy work of buying characters.

that should be cool, I'd buy the games

They will probably only make Lego games off of existing Lego franchises. So no Lego LotR, unless they started making sets. And no Lego Halo, since MegaBlocks got the rights to Halo Wars (and oh god they are ugly! Why couldn't Lego have gotten the rights)

I loved lego star wars, not so lego Indy, or lego batman, but I'm still looking forward to these!

sounds fun though i wonder how lego dead space would be(stupid idea) or lego Devil may cry (please stop me!) or lego...something (finally i forgot all my ideas)

LEGO Harry Potter? Yes! Return of force(-like) powers!

I liked Lego Batman and might just rent these

It was only a matter of time, I think it would really work and not just because HP is a huge franchise. Someone mentioned on here they’d like to see a Lego LOTR, that sounds pretty cool and should be easier since WB got the rights back. I really would love to see Lego Spider-Man.

I'm sure it will be better than ea's crap games

This game should be freakin awesome. Lego Harry Potter should have everything. There's still 2 movies coming out though so mayne they should wait. Make a double discer video game.

Lego Harry Potter sounds good. Star Wars worked because of the force, but I was never that sure about Indiana Jones or Batman... Still, with magic and Lego environments, it should be pretty fun.

More lego games for my baby bro... he'll put it next to lego star wars and lego batman... ;)

a lego harry potter would be pretty interesting i believe...but i wonder if the "cast" would be big enough

Something like this could work. Hogwarts is big enough, plenty of possibilities for puzzles. A LEGO Snape would be hilarious to see

Oh,you're talking about Lego Creator: Harry Potter right? I still have that game around here somewhere. Unlike the new Lego games it was actually about building with Legos.

Yeah I just found the old box for it, they have already done an old Lego Harry Potter back in the 90's I think for PCs.

If I am not mistaken, wasn't there already a Lego Harry Potter out... I could have swore my little brother and I used to play it on the computer all the time.

ive lost my interests after Lego Batman was kinda a bust... Indiana Jones was cool though. Im sure this Harry Potter will be great for its fans. Ive never read the books, Ive seen the movies and they are pretty good. I'm most likely not going to get this since I only played lego batman for 2 hours... but Im sure this will be fun for their fans

Keep em coming , can't stop playing these games even if Potter is a poor choice. Bring on the rest Lego Spidey , lego LOTR etc...
