10 years ago today, Media Molecule was founded by Mark Healey, Alex Evans, Kareem Ettouney and David Smith, who were all working at Lionhead Studios. After adding Chris Lee, Siobhan Reddy, Anton Kirczenow and Francis Pang, Media Molecule was officially created, and they moved into a small studio in March 2006, with LittleBigPlanet being announced at GDC the following year.
So far, Media Molecule has released LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 on PlayStation 3, Tearaway on PlayStation Vita, and Tearaway Unfolded on PlayStation 4. Their current project is Dreams on PS4, which is expected to receive a beta in 2016.
As the developer explained on their website, 2016 will be full of announcements and events:
Our 10th anniversary is a very special milestone for us, so expect lots of celebrations throughout the year; our official birthday is just the beginning! We’ve got some pretty exciting announcements and events happening over the course of the next 12 months, not to mention all the fun we’ll be having with Dreams too. It’s going to be a jam-packed year so make sure you join us for the ride!
We couldn’t have got this far without all the endless love and support from our wonderful community; we really do have the best fans in the world. The energy and passion that you folks have for our games continually inspires us and pushes us forward, we never want to stop creating and making things for you all. Thank YOU for being the most awesome community we could have ever imagined, we love you all and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will bring!
