Today Sony Computer Entertainment announced that it had acquired game developer Media Molecule, creators of LittleBigPlanet for the PS3 and PSP.
Quote from the release by Alex Evans – Co-founder of Media Molecule:
“Since Media Molecule’s inception, we’ve had a uniquely close relationship with SCE. Over the years they have consistently shown their dedication to Creative Gaming and Media Molecule, not only through their support of the company, but their willingness to take risks and embrace our often unusual approach and ideas,” said Evans. “What we’ve achieved already with LittleBigPlanet has proved this to us and we’re excited by this new chapter of innovation and creative gaming, for all involved.”
Media Molecule will be joining the ranks of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) and will bolster the already phenomenal talents of 15 game development studios located in Japan, the USA, the UK and The Netherlands.
Congrats to the Media Molecule team and to SCE for finding a great partner and talented studio.
