Media Molecule has produced two absolute gems with LittleBigPlanet and LitleBigPlanet 2 on the PS3. And I have no doubt that LittleBigPlanet Karting will continue that great run when it’s released later this year.
As discovered by Official Playstation Magazine, the company is now working on what it describes as an “AAA project.” This is in job listings on the developer’s own website.
At the time of writing the Current Vacancies page suggests Media Molecule is looking for a ‘UI Designer’ for “different projects on different platforms,” and an ‘Experienced Gameplay Programmer’ working on “brand new IPs, even more ambitious than LBP was when it was conceived 6 years ago.”
The LittleBigPlanet universe has so much scope for enlargement that I wouldn’t bet against these games being based in that world. But “new IP” suggests otherwise. Perhaps MM has something huge planned for the next-gen consoles?
