LBP2 was necessary due to the DLC “divide”

William Ho, director for United Front’s ModNation Racers, has said that LittleBigPlanet 2 was necessary to due to all the new changes and features.

Speaking with CVG, Ho said that the sequel should also help fix the ‘community divide’ over DLC.

“It’s hard to continually bolt on features to the same game because basically you have a divide between the people who have updated the game through purchasing download content, and those who haven’t,” he said.

“So certain features, you have to do in a sequel so that you can reset the playing field, and make all these great features that you worked so hard to put in the game accessible to the largest number of players possible.”

LBP2 was outed yesterday by Game Informer, after months of speculation, rumor, and denials by all involved.

Different sites have posted the contents of the reveal, and according to the various sources, the new title focuses less on platforming, allows you to create vehicles, puzzles, and your very own cut-scenes.

MM tweeted earlier that more details are expected from the firm Monday.
