Media Molecule have confirmed that LittleBigPlanet 2 will no longer be coming out in November, as was expected. Instead, it's now planned for January 2011.
"LittleBigPlanet 2 is a crazy dream, a dream to allow players to make whatever kind of game they want, but also to play though a great adventure of drama and excitement, power-ups, and cinematics," said Media Molecule.
"But like all of the most ambitious ideas, it can be a considerable challenge to turn these dreams in fun games. We've all been working like powered-up space ninjas and we're almost there, but because we love what we've made, and we love our little sack-friends, and most of all we love all our fans out there, we couldn't let you all get together until we knew we were giving you the best experience imaginable.
"Which is why we've taken the hard decision to delay the worldwide release of LittleBigPlanet 2, originally slated for later this year to January 2011. We know this will come as disappointing news for all you LittleBigPlanet fans, and believe us, we are disappointed too."
It's unfortunate, but hopefully the extra time means they can make the game even more expansive.
