It can only be speculated what exactly is in the works here, and with what IP. Traveller's Tales is currently working on Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which is due for release in Spring 2021. The studio has made Lego games for an absolutely huge variety of IPs, so it's near impossible to nail down exactly what's on the way, especially with so little information in the job listing. With a resumé that includes Star Wars as well as both the DC and Marvel superheroes, the possibilities are nearly endless.
Regardless of what franchise this new title will be taking on, fans can be sure that the end result should be an exciting new title with some interesting online play.
