Lego ‘The Hobbit’ confirmed for multiplatform launch in spring 2014

TT Games is on to its next, great Lego adventure, and to no one’s real surprise, it’s based on Peter Jackson’s  interpretation of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit. It’s due out in spring 2014, after the release of Jackson’s second movie in a planned trilogy, so the game won’t actually touch the end of the story. That’s why science created DLC though, right?

The game is coming to just about any in-production machine that plays video games: PC/Mac, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, 3DS, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. There’s no mention in the press release of a mobile release, but TT Games tends to put those out as well, so if there’s a future announcement about Lego The Hobbit coming to iOS/Android, just try to act surprised.

There’s no release date more specific than “spring 2014,” though it’s fair to guess that the game will hit around the same time that the trilogy’s second movie comes to Blu-ray/DVD. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13, 2013.
