Report: New Lego Harry Potter, Indiana Jones Titles In Development

The résumé of an animator at developer Traveller’s Tales accidentally let slip at least two new Lego titles in development at the studio.

The animator's online résumé -- now edited to remove mention of both games -- listed the existing Lego titles as well as Lego Harry Poter and Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

The latter has also been subject to many fan rumors, as the first game was subtitled The Original Adventures and did not contain any content relating to the newest Indiana Jones film, despite ample time apparently being available for its inclusion.

Before it was edited, the animator's résumé also mentioned a pitch by Traveller’s Tales for a game based on the forthcoming The Hobbit movies.

It is unclear whether this would be Lego-related, but although no playsets exist for the property, the game rights have just reportedly returned back to Warner’s control.

UK development studio Traveller's Tales has enjoyed notable success with titles Lego Star Wars, Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Batman.

Considerable speculation has arisen over what their next game may be, especially after the studio was acquired by Warner Bros. which owns the Harry Potter movie franchise – of which several Lego playsets already exist.
