LittleBigPlanet Vita dev to work solely on PlayStation platforms

Sony has announced that it has signed a new partnership with UK-based studio Double Eleven.

As part of the deal, the developer will produce games exclusively for Sony platforms. It is currently working on the PlayStation Vita version of LittleBigPlanet.

“Double Eleven are one of the most exciting developers to emerge onto the development scene in recent years, their technical expertise makes them a great fit for LittleBigPlanet on PSVITA and we’ve very pleased with the progress the team have made on this hugely anticipated title,” explained Michael Denny, SVP of SCE Worldwide Studios Europe. 
 
Double Eleven CEO Lee Hutchinson: “For us to become strong partners with Sony at such a crucial stage in our own development underlines the unswerving commitment we have made to the quality of our production.

"It is a testament to the hard work of all the exceptional team here at Double Eleven and we're delighted that this agreement will help our company grow and flourish, working on prestigious titles, on leading-edge platforms.

"The opportunity to work so closely with Sony is simply fantastic and we look forward to a truly exciting new phase in our own development, with the absolute intention to become a world-class studio.”

Double Eleven was founded in 2010 by former lead engineers from Rockstar Leeds.
