LittleBigPlanet 2 possibly confirmed

It appears as though Sony could be gearing up for a definitive push with the Move through the help of a successor to the PlayStation’s popular platformer, LittleBigPlanet. Word has come through, via the semi-reliable means of translation, that a Move-supporting LittleBigPlanet 2 might already be in the works.

LittleBigPlanet 2 will support the Move,” remarks SCE Benelux’s Folkert Langeveld, perhaps unintentionally continuing the trend of having Sony’s surprise announcements spoiled.

“Sony has not hurried a sequel to the platform game from Media Molecule. But LittleBigPlanet 2 is already in development,” Langeveld goes onto mention. Though it might be easy to dismiss this as an inadvertent reference to the LittleBigPlanet/Move demo shown at GDC; Sony’s recent investment in Media Molecule does add a certain degree of validity to the notion that there might be bigger things planned for the franchise.
