In late 2016, I got a PS3 and the Lego Dimensions Starter Pack. I played the game for hours, daily, I loved it!
I was keeping up with the release of new Waves of expansion packs through the wiki. But quickly something strange happened. You see, a new Wave released every 2 months, Wave 1 in September 2015, Wave 2 in November, Wave 3 January 2016, etc.
But January 2017 did not see the release of Wave 8. It was delayed. That was fine, Wave 7.5 and 8 successfully came out eventually. Now, waiting for the release of Wave 9, set for release in September 2017 I joined the wiki and gave myself a name.
Wave9Nut. But soon after the release of Wave 9 the game was canceled… Wave 10 never released.
I quickly got into a new game. Disney Crossy Road. They released updates every month. I was informed by the people of the wiki, they were waiting for The DuckTales update. It was late by several months. A few more months past and we got it! But it was soon announced that the game was over.
I felt like I was cursed. That whatever I played would stop receiving updates. But a friend from DCR wiki told about a new game! A game that had entered Beta.
Surely a new game wouldn’t die so soon?
And it didn’t! Disney Heroes Battle Mode has been around for 3 fantastic years. I’ve made new friends, had loads of fun, and met really great developers.
And It’s been fun, really fun. This game, this community… it means a lot to me. Nobody blame the devs, it’s not there fault. It’s likely the fault of a higher up, or a Disney Representative.
But we can’t ignore this. This is how it always begins. The conspicuous change in update release pattern.
I know Loutre said everything is fine. But so did Arthur Parsons at E3 2017.
This is the beginning of the end people. I’ll never forget the fun moments. Dev Q&As, the fun forum games we’ve done, the early team shuffling I used to do. But it’s clearly not going to last much longer.
Battle on everyone. Battle on till the end.
