Secret World developer Funcom working on Lego MMO

Developer Funcom today has announced that it has reached a licensing deal with LEGO to make an MMO based on the LEGO Minifigures franchise.

The press release states, “The massively multiplayer online game that Funcom will develop based on the LEGO Minifigures franchise will focus on maximum accessibility. Funcom and the LEGO Group will work together to make the game available to consumers in their online channels and will be coordinating activities to provide a broad and enhanced experience for the product line.”

As a fan of the LEGO game franchise I would love to see a MMO that’s done well. Developer NetDevil tried their had at LEGO MMO with LEGO Universe in 2010 to sweeping disappointment, let’s hope Funcom does better.
