Sony acquires Media Molecule

LittleBigPlanet dev joins ranks.

Sony's list of strong first-party studios has grown this afternoon with the acquisition LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule.

They'll join studios like Naughty Dog and Evolution Studios as part of Sony Worldwide Studios.

Sony described the deal as a "strategic move to secure excellence in game development for current and future PlayStation platforms".

"Since Media Molecule's inception, we've had a uniquely close relationship with SCE. Over the years they have consistently shown their dedication to Creative Gaming and Media Molecule, not only through their support of the company, but their willingness to take risks and embrace our often unusual approach and ideas," said Alex Evans, co-founder of Media Molecule.

"What we've achieved already with LittleBigPlanet has proved this to us and we're excited by this new chapter of innovation and creative gaming, for all involved.”

There's no mention of a LittleBigPlanet 2.
