Double Eleven are taking Media Molecule’s place to develop the PS Vita installment of LittleBigPlanet, which is one of the biggest and most ambitious Vita projects we’ve seen yet.
The British studio, which is based in North-East of England, was founded by ex-Rockstar employees Lee Hutchinson and Matt Shepcar, in 2010.
LittleBigPlanet Vita will be the studio’s first project and, having been working on it for the past 12 months, Hutchinson and Shepcar are relieved that they can finally announce some news regarding the project, which they see as a privilege to be developing.
“It’s a fantastic achievement and a privilege for the studio to be working on a project such as LittleBigPlanet, particularly for such an exciting new platform. We’ve spent the best part of a year recruiting a crack squad of games development professionals and we’re delighted that we can finally announce it” said Lee Hutchinson, CEO of Double Eleven.
Double Eleven aren’t alone with the project, though, as they’re working closely with Swedish developers, Tarsier Studios, who have worked on both LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, creating DLC for Media Molecule.
