Media Molecule has given the world a revolutionary franchise called LittleBigPlanet but after delivering the second to widespread critical acclaim, they want to try to something new.
When a team has that much talent, it's always interesting to consider what they might do with that talent. For most of this generation, Media Molecule has been 100% focused on Sackboy and Co. and that focus has resulted in awards, respect, and a place in Sony's stable of top-tier developers. Now, a series of Tweets has passed through several sources, including Edge ; the update is from Media Molecule's Siobhan Reddy:
"We're stepping away from LittleBigPlanet to focus on some new ideas."
"Some new ideas" is pretty vague, but as the team is owned by Sony now, we'd like to assume a new PlayStation 3 exclusive is in the works. But what might it be? Will it be at all similar to LBP? Or are they going to pull a complete 180 and do something dark and intense? Well, whatever it is, we'll definitely be interested in the project.
