Rumour: LittleBigPlanet 2 This Year
VG247 is reporting that a LittleBigPlanet sequel is in the works and will be released this year. This news flies in the face of claims from Media Molecule in the past that it would resist a sequel. Its reasoning was that a LBP 2 would alienate buyers of the first game by voiding their creative efforts. MM seemed to think it could bring all the changes and updates to the game it wanted to through DLC alone.
Having said all that it is possible that both Sony and Media Molecule have come up with a solution to this problem, either making LBP 2 cross-compatible with the old game or perhaps going after some new genre for the title. On the other hand this could simply be a decision based on Sony needing a big release for the end of the year. You may recall that last week Sony announced it had bought a controlling share of Media Molecule.
This is all still firmly rumour and speculation at this point, but VG247 believes GDC this week may shed more light on this alleged expansion of the LittleBigPlanet franchise.
