LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the best seller about all LEGO games according to the head of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
According to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment President David Haddad, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the best-selling LEGO game of all time.
This news comes from an interview with VentureBeat, where the president mentioned this news in passing during the second question. You can few the full quote below:
GamesBeat: Superheroes seem to be pretty hot following the success of Wonder Woman.
Haddad: Congratulations to our studio. I had nothing to do with it, but we couldn’t be happier for our partners in theatrical. The response to it, critically and from the fans, the strength going into week two—also, we had three live DC games, two on mobile and one on console. We were able to activate around that. We were able to give Wonder Woman content and DLC for our two mobile games as well as the console game. That stuff works across the whole studio. We’re very proud of that. And we’re doing more superheroes with Lego Marvel 2, a sequel to our best-selling Lego game ever.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes takes the Marvel characters that we know and love – like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, and more – and puts the LEGO video game spin on top of them. Players can either progress through the game’s story missions, where they will fight the classic Marvel villain Galactus, or they can explore the vast, open world New York City. Here, players are able to do side-quests to unlock other, more obscure characters.
About a month ago, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 was announced. While characters from the original title will return, the sequel will introduce super heroes and super villains from a variety of different era and realities, including the game’s main villain, Kang the Conqueror.

A week later the full announcement trailer for the title was revealed. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is set to release on Novemeber 14th, 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Nintendo Switch version of the title is set to be released in Christmas of 2017.
