Online game will close on January 31, 2012. The LEGO Group’s digital offerings will continue to develop over the coming years.
Apparently, 115 people working for LU now, will lose their jobs
I really hope they make it on wii. I have never played universe but have always wanted to . It could use the internet access thing on wii (wi-fi I think? ) anyway, I hope that they make it on wii.
I'm confused. They said they were closing it, and laying off their workers. What makes you think they are going to do anything else with this game?

1. Parents want to purchase a product once for their children.
2. The art direction was outsourced and did not look enough like LEGO.
3. All LEGO video games that do not have a licensed line (StarWars, Batman, etc) tie-in have eventually failed.
4. From the beginning with wooden toys, LEGO has always been about a tactile play experience. They should stick with what they do the best.
Some of the LEGO Ambassadors have been telling TLG these things since the project was in beta several years ago. Overall the project had some merit in terms of research and development. But one wonders if these resources would have been better spent strengthening the core product lines and brick quality.
