Media Molecule hit with layoffs during transition to new game

Dreams developer Media Molecule, part of PlayStation Studios, announced today that the studio will suffer layoffs. GLHF (part of Sports Illustrated) reports that this will impact about 15-20% of staff.

Media Molecule is best known for its work on LittleBigPlanet, a platformer with extensive creation tools. Dreams looked to take that further. Released in 2020, it gave users even more extensive game-making abilities.

However, Dreams never seemed to find a big audience and the studio stopped for support for title in September. We don’t know what Media Molecule’s next project will look like.
