LittleBigPlanet 2 rumoured for 2010 release

The grinding stones of the rumour mill have started churning out the crushed wheatiness of not entirely confirmed information again, this time with news of the possible release (and existence) of LittleBigPlanet 2 later this year.

The good people over at VG247 are reporting that their source of this information was ‘cast iron’ about a 2010 shipping date for a sequel.

A really interesting thing to note however is that Media Molecule have not given any indication that they are interested in producing a sequel, with level designer Danny Leaver saying 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.

With the annual Game Developer Conference in San Francisco just around the corner, perhaps we’ll get a bit of an insight into this rumour. Is there actually demand for a LittleBigPlanet sequel with the DLC support that the game has been receiving? Let us know what you think.

    I personaly don’t see any point to it myself. LBP has a constant supply of fresh DLC which usually enhances the game and fuels it’s creative ideas for the user, like Danny says, it seems a bit counterproductive to make a seperate “newer” LBP. Everything the creative community needs is already there, and anything that needs a re-haul can be done with either more DLC or an update to the main game.

    I’ve seen levels out there that have astounding talent poured into them, and really, it’s now OUR ideas that make LBP the great game it is today. With over a million levels to play through I’d imagine it would take even the biggest LBP fan their entire life just get through what’s on offer at the moment.

    In short: ME NO THINK IT NEED IT!!!

    Probably a mis-quote or just took what was said out of context deliberately. I’d imagine the source actually said something like ‘we have enough content to make a sequel’ meaning there’s more upcoming dlc.

    & what the hell happened to the sackboy sephiroth? they could do a remake of FF7 in LBP form..
