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.
