Maybe it’s the particular crusade I personally have against Activision, but then again, it might not be. It just may be that developers these days aren’t as money hungry, and that they actually want to create quality products without milking their games. Sure, Guitar Hero 5 is good and all, and Left 4 Dead 2 does look kickass; but sequels aren’t always necessary.

Media Molecule thinks a LittleBigPlanet sequel would be counterproductive; kindly stroll inside and see why.

According to an interview with Critical Gamer, we won’t be seeing an LBP2 anytime soon. The following is an extract from the article:

“I think what you’ve seen so far from LittleBigPlanet, that’s the way it’s going to continue.” said producer Martin Lynagh, referring to DLC and updates for the existing game.

Level designer Danny Leaver said that a sequel would fragment the LBP community. “We’d never want to do that. That’d be the most counterproductive thing you could do I think” he said.

It’s always a sight to see developers looking out for their fans. Despite the successes of LittleBigPlanet, it’s good to know that they’re not going to turn all Activision-y on us. Kudos to you, Media Molecule.

  1. I still hop on LBP every so often

  2. Unfortunately I haven’t played LBP in almost a whole year. :(

  3. One of my favorite games with a group of friends! It’s a shame to hear that there won’t be another….although it really does make sense.

    Oh well…Maybe MM will come out with another great title =)
    I look forward to that.

    Wolf26pack / I also Agree 100%. I love that they continue to surpopt this game in this way thru DLC. Certain Games like – LittleBigPlanet- Sport Franchises such as NBA2K,NBA Live,Madden,NHL2K etc etc etc – Music Games such as Rockband & Guitar Hero Franchisesshould just bring out DLC with Roster Changes, Music Track packs & added modes instead of bringing out a supposedly whole new game for another $60. Also if I had to pay $60 for a whole new music game those tracks that I bought as DLC should be completely transferable for free and not for a Small one time Fee and if they aren’t transferable you should be able to get a refund since most likely you won’t be playing Guitar Hero 2 anymore when you end up getting Guitar Hero 3.
