Media Molecule Denies Sequel, Says DLC is the Future

Hey LittleBigPlanet fans, how much would you like a sequel to your favorite Playstation 3 sackboy romp? We at Game Rant would like one very much as well, but that certainly doesn’t seem to be the case.

As reported by CriticalGamer in an interview with Media Molecule, Danny Leaver (Level Designer) was asked about a sequel he responded with an absolute no.

“We’d never want to do that, that’d be the most counterproductive thing you could do I think.”

It would appear that Media Molecule would rather keep the community together, instead of breaking it up, which certainly is a good thing because stunts like that usually get petitions boycotting your game the day after it’s announced (i.e. Left 4 Dead 2). They plan to keep the LittleBigPlanet community going by shooting a steady stream of content their way.

As has been previously announced by Media Molecule, there are 2 big updates coming: the addition of water and the ability to use the PS3 Motion Controller. DLC is the future for LittleBigPlanet is what producer Martin Lynagh said.

“I think what you’ve seen so far from LittleBigPlanet, that’s the way it’s going to continue.”

If the two big updates are not enough for you, then you will be happy to know that Media Molecule has plenty coming in 2010, or so Mr. Lynagh stated.

“We have a lot of stuff coming out, especially next year. We can’t really talk about specifics for a lot of it at the moment, because a lot of it hasn’t been announced.”

So there will be no sequel anytime soon, but that makes sense. Why would you pay for a new title when you could just pay $10 for the additional content that would have cost you $60 if it came in the form of a new game. If you really need something new from Media Molecule though you can look forward to LittleBigPlanet PSP hitting store shelves and PSN on November 17th.

Are you happy with Media Molecule’s decision to stick with DLC instead of a full-blown sequel? What are you hoping comes with the unannounced DLC?
