While developer Traveller’s Tales shipped the long-awaited Lego Star Wars: Skywalker Saga, the Lego IP has begun morphing into something more with other teams & publishers. Previously, we saw this with the likes of Lego Brawls which shipped nearly a year ago. Additionally, hindsight for more TT Games projects regarding Lego does not appear to be so bright from recent reports.

In that, once canceled project regarded The Guardians of the Galaxy as the starring cast in ‘Project Cosmic’ alongside the other shuttered ‘Project Marley’ which bridged more Disney properties including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Pirates of the Caribbean, Maleficent, Muppets, and more. Prior to that, word had it that 2K & Lego were arranging a magnitude of sports titles for a later announcement then.

Recently, 2K & Visual Concepts announced Lego 2K Drive – a new open-world racing-centric title scheduled to release later this May. You can watch the announcement trailer in the video below:
