The studio has numerous open positions that describe the company's upcoming work as "AAA" and slated to arrive on "different platforms." Media Molecule is a Sony-owned studio, and every game from the shop has arrived on the PlayStation 3 or PSP.

Last summer, Media Molecule said it was stepping away from the Little Big Planet franchise, but noted it will continue to be involved in the series. Upcoming franchise entries Little Big Planet Karting and Little Big Planet for the PlayStation Vita are being developed externally.

Media Molecule was founded by former Lionhead Studios staffers and created the Little Big Planet series, which was born on the PlayStation 3 in 2008. The franchise came to the PSP from Sony's Cambridge studio in 2009, and a sequel developed by Media Molecule arrived for the PS3 in 2011.
