Despite a Sony executive confirming LittleBigPlanet 2 a few days ago, the company has officially denied his words, stating that no LBP sequel has been announced. Of course, it’s not a straight denial that the game exists, but for right now, we’re to assume it’s not happening until further notice.
“As demonstrated recently at GDC, LittleBigPlanet has been shown as an example of how an existing game could benefit from PlayStation Move Motion Controller support,” explains a party-pooping Sony rep. “This is not a confirmation of LittleBigPlanet 2, and we do not have any announcements to make about the LittleBigPlanet franchise,”
So, nothing to see here. I will still be surprised if we never see a LittleBigPlanet 2 in the future, though. Sony was so keen on turning that into a flagship franchise, and that didn’t really happen. It’s not like Sony to ever throw in the towel if at first it doesn’t succeed, so I we ought to expect much more from LBP in the coming years.
