Last October, the BBC reported that British developer Media Molecule was already hard at work on a sequel to its popular platformer/level-creator kit Little Big Planet. However, the vagueness of the report made it unclear if the title was a true sequel to the PlayStation 3 game or the PSP spin-off that was confirmed earlier this year. (See video below for its E3 stage demo.)
This month, though, evidence surfaced that Media Molecule is hard at work on a major project for Sony's console. In a job listing posted as the Electronic Entertainment Expo's metaphorical dust settled, the Guildford-based studio laid out the requirements for a gameplay programmer for a "ground-breaking, AAA, PS3 title for Sony Computer Entertainment."
Sony is the publisher for both the original Little Big Planet and the forthcoming PSP spin-off, due out later this year. And while it has been more than happy to use the game's adorable Sackboy character models as a corporate mascot, it is remaning mum on what Media Molecule is up to. Requests for comment about the project and the future of the Little Big Planet franchise had not been answered as of press time.
