False alarm, it seems. Sony Europe has since issued the following comment during an interview with Connected Consoles:
“As demonstrated recently at GDC, LittleBigPlanet has been shown as an example of how an existing game could benefit from PlayStation Move Motion Controller support. This is not a confirmation of LittleBigPlanet 2, and we do not have any announcements to make about the LittleBigPlanet franchise.”
Did you enjoy LittleBigPlanet? Of course you did. Fancy a sequel? Yes? Well, if a report filed on Dutch website tweakers is anything to go by, you could be in luck – apparently, LittleBigPlanet 2 is in the works and will supposedly incorporate PlayStation Move functionality.
Check out the translation below, courtesy of the folks at VG247. The news itself comes from the mouth of a Sony marketing boss in Benelux, who confirmed the existence of the Media Molecule sequel.
"In an earlier video appeared online, talk Folkert Langeveld of Sony Computer Entertainment Benelux Move on the PlayStation and the strategy that Sony uses for the motion controller as well as possible in the market to turn. He mentions some titles here that will be suitable for Move.
Most notable is the decision of the marketer that Little Big Planet 2 will support the Move. Sony has not been hurried on a sequel to the platform game from Media Molecule. The ruling appears to indicate that Langeveld Little Big Planet 2 already in development. Sony took earlier this year on development studio Media Molecule. They were responsible for the first part of Little Big Planet."
Rest assured we'll have more information on this development as it becomes available to us. Keep in mind that a formal announcement has yet to be made, so we're filing this under rumor just to be safe. Stay tuned.
