Media Molecule have been delivering additional content for the rabid fans of LittleBigPlanet on a regular basis since the game launched, but they haven't fundamentally changed the game. And while the studio seems to have previously dismissed the idea of a full-fledged sequel, it looks like we're getting one. Game Informer, teasing their next issue online, has promised the first details on LittleBigPlanet 2.
I've reached out to Sony for additional confirmation of LittleBigPlanet 2, but sequel's existence would be massive turnabout for Media Molecule, who actually called the idea of LittleBigPlanet 2 "counterproductive" in an interview last fall. What could have suddenly changed their minds?
“We’d never fragment the community," said Media Molecule level designer Danny Leaver in an interview with Critical Gamer late last year, when asked about developing a disc-based sequel. “We’d never want to do that. That’d be the most counterproductive thing you could do I think.”
Of course, it's possible LittleBigPlanet 2 isn't being released on a disc at all or Media Molecule has found a way to avoid fragmenting their active development community with the sequel.
