A followup today on an earlier report regarding a possible new LEGO Harry Potter game due in 2009. Eurogamer is now reporting that this is not likely as “a senior source working close to Traveller’s Tales has told us that LEGO Harry Potter is off the menu for at least 12 months.
However, Eurogamer understands that a new installment of LEGO Indiana Jones is looking likely.”

The article continues: “Harry Potter has been viewed as an obvious candidate for the LEGO
treatment since Warner, which makes the Potter movies, bought
Traveller’s Tales in November 2007. Electronic Arts will release a game
based on the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie due this
summer, and its deal with Warner could have an impact on the
development of any additional Potter-branded games in the short term.

…Producer Nick Ricks added: “There will be a LEGO game in 2009. And I think it’s okay to say that you’ll be a bit surprised.”
