Media Molecule spends $6.3 million on R&D

Posted By | On 07th, Jan. 2012

Media Molecule, now a Sony first party studio, wants to stop depending on the Littlebigplanet brand, and for good reasons. They just invested $6.3 billion on R&D and are eager to develop something new.

Most of the investments went in, “leading edge physics and dynamics, rapid world creation from laser data, innovative routes to market via web based interfaces, 3D stereo-optics for advanced simulation, and use of ‘hi-def’ data capture and processing techniques”.

The studio has 50 staff members, and it remains to be seen what their next project is. It certainly won’t be Littlebigplanet 3 or something like that, according to me.
