Little Big Planet 2 Delayed

Can you wait?

Early this morning, Media Molecule announced that their highly anticipated sequel to Little Big Planet will be delayed until January 2011. Originally LBP2 was supposed to be out this November, but they felt like they needed to take more time to release a game that they feel is complete to their standards. With such heavy anticipation for the title, it makes sense that they only want to release a game that can live up to the hype. While fans looking forward to playing this now have to wait an extra three months to get their hands on a retail copy, MM says they are going to make an effort to release more LBP2 content to players before its launch.

The lengthy time between the two releases of StarCraft installments has paid off for Blizzard Entertainment as they’ve moved 3 million copies from store shelves within the first month.
