LittleBigPlanet 2 reports 'speculation' - Sony

Platform holder shrugs off rumours of LBP2 releasing this year

Sony has dismissed reports of a LittleBigPlanet sequel coming this year as "rumour and speculation".

No details were reported other than a near-certain release this year, although it's not clear if this will be via a full disc release or as a download via PSN, according to a VG247 'source'.

As expected, Sony told CVG in regards to the report that it doesn't "comment on rumour or speculation".

As noted, the dev team have in the past gone on record to say it had no intention of making a sequel, with level designer Danny Leaver saying a sequel would be "the most counterproductive thing you could do I think".

This, however, was despite a BBC report claiming that developer Media Molecule, which is now wholly Sony-owned, was working on a sequel before the first game was even released.

MM recently released a Pirates of the Caribbean Level Kit, which costs £4.79 and adds specially-themed levels that contain new water gameplay, along with an edit tool to add water to your own custom creations.
