Media Molecule is working on something other than LittleBigPlanet for its next game.
Since being founded in 2006, Media Molecule has been all about LittleBigPlanet. As an ace in Sony’s deck, you’d think the developer would stay that way for a while. Maybe not.
According to Edge, Media Molecule studio director Siobhan Reddy recently revealed that the company is putting Sackboy in the toychest for now. At the Gamelab Conference in Barcelona, Reddy said: “We’re stepping away from LittleBigPlanet to focus on some new ideas.”
Unfortunately, that’s the only information we have. In January, Media Molecule gave fans a whole new Sackboy adventure and took console-based user tools to the next level with LittleBigPlanet 2. If Reddy’s comments mean anything, it might be the last we see of the little guy for a while, other than LittleBigPlanet for the PS Vita handheld which is not coming from Media Molecule.
So if Media Molecule isn’t working on LittleBigPlanet 3, what could be next? My guess is either something else that puts another creative spin on a genre, or a World War II shooter. Everyone loves those.
