Media Molecule announced it is working on an original IP title exclusively for PLAYSTATION 3 that will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.
The project hasn't been given a public name yet and we don't know what kind of game it will be. What we do know, however, is that Sony was interested enough in this project to back it up. This seems to be the latest Sony backed exclusive original IP coming to PS3 from outside developers. Other such projects pushed by Sony that are being developed by independent teams include Ninja Theory's Heavenly Sword, Insomniac's Resistance: Fall of Man, Factor 5's Lair, and Level 5's White Night Tale among others.
"I think it is fantastic that a massive company like Sony has the vision to see that a smaller outfit can create a world class game. Even after six months of working together, we're beginning to create something very special for PS3," said Alex Evans, technical director for Media Molecule.
"We were immediately struck by Media Molecule's ambitions for what a next-gen title could be. Innovation is the key to our shared vision and everyone here at SCEE is highly impressed by Media Molecule's ability to deliver on that vision. We're excited to have extended our partnership on an exclusive basis and look forward to presenting the game publicly in due course," said Michael Denny, VP of Sony's worldwide studios.
