Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans has confirmed the company is now split into three groups. One is the studio management team, another is working on Tearaway, and a third section is producing an “unannounced” product.

Speaking in the latest issue of Edge, which is in shops today, Evans discussed the freedom at Media Molecule.

“An interesting thing about Media Molecule is that we actually enjoy tearing everything up and doing something we couldn’t have imagined doing before.”

“That’s the positive of all this,” he continued.

“As a studio, we want to keep everything fresh. We don’t want to be known as just the LittleBigPlanet studio, much as we love that. I think of Media Molecule more as creative gaming.”

“For Tearaway, we’ve imagined creative gaming within a much more gamey game. For the R&D project, it’s creative gaming; go back to those two words and completely reimagine how people can create. It’s scary, but it’s exhilarating.”

No word has appeared as to what this project is yet. Is Evans providing a subtle hint? Could the words “scary” and “exhilarating” signal a move towards horror? We’ll see.

Thanks for the heads up, CVG.
