LEGO 2K Drive, a car game from Visual Concepts and 2K games in which we can build our cars with LEGO bricks, announced last week with an imminent release date: May 19.
LEGO 2K Drive comes out this spring on all platforms (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC – Steam), as the first big-bug-putting LEGO game not from TT games and from the action adventures of this British studio, behind the LEGO Wars Star Skywalker Saga.
But 2K Games has big plans, and if it’s successful, I think 2K Drive will turn it into a franchise… even beyond the limits of car games.
“We want it to be a multi-year arc. We want it to be there for Drive 2, 3, 4 and 5,” said Mark Pierce, the game’s executive producer at Visual Concepts.
LEGO 2K Drive 2 (and 3, 4 and 5) might not be about cars
“There are a lot of things that we’re planning for post-lore that take it to levels that we know we can’t do within the launch game. We want to grow the creativity beyond the car. We’d love to be able to build all kinds of things.”
Will the Lego 2K Drive saga become like the NBA game that Visual Concepts also does? It is possible, but certainly not input.
Although Pierce confirms that he plans to have other games, and ideas that are so ambitious that they cannot be done with the launch of the game, LEGO 2K Drive will have a season, called Drive Pass, with four seasons for one year, with new vehicles, themes and biomes.
The intention is therefore to provide LEGO 2K Drive with a lot of post-lore content, although Pierce’s words suggest that the game will not be an indefinite service and “LEGO 2K Drive 2”.
In fact, in the same interview they hint at a possible novelty of the sequel to the LEGO 2K Drive: a completely open world, not made up of several mini-worlds… a decision they “discussed a lot”; it seems to be reasoned at last. Consideration from Nintendo Switch users: “On some platforms… you can’t wait three minutes for something to load, you know?2.
