Double Eleven now exclusive to Sony

LittleBigPlanet Vita dev joins the family.

Double Eleven, the new UK studio behind LittleBigPlanet Vita, has signed an exclusivity deal with Sony.

Formed by former Rockstar Leeds staff in 2010, the developer will continue to work on the LittleBigPlanet franchise as well as develop new titles for all Sony platforms.

"For us to become strong partners with Sony at such a crucial stage in our own development underlines the unswerving commitment we have made to the quality of our production," commented CEO Lee Hutchinson.

"It is a testament to the hard work of all the exceptional team here at Double Eleven and we're delighted that this agreement will help our company grow and flourish, working on prestigious titles, on leading-edge platforms.

"The opportunity to work so closely with Sony is simply fantastic and we look forward to a truly exciting new phase in our own development, with the absolute intention to become a world-class studio."

Earlier this month original LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule announced it was stepping away from its DIY platforming franchise "to focus on some new ideas."
