Sony Scoops Up Developer Media Molecule, says “Nothing will Change”

SCEE (Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe) announced today that they are purchasing developer Media Molecule, the firm responsible for “LittleBigPlanet”.  SCEE posted their public announcement on their company blog this morning, declaring that “nothing will change” for gamers; “Media Molecule will simply continue to make great games.”

Given that the developer’s only project to date was “LittleBigPlanet”, the decision to merge the two companies makes perfect sense.  Comparing this action with the last major industry acquisition, Warner Bros Interactive buying up Rocksteady, it would make sense to imply that “Molecule” may be working on the next major entry in the “LittleBigPlanet” franchise.
