There isn’t an official announcement for LittleBigPlanet 2 just yet. But they said they would love to make one. If they did, all LBP 1 levels will be compatible. One way to go about it is to have a separate planet for LittleBigPlanet 1 levels and another for LittleBigPlanet 2.
“If you look at online distribution for LBP, when the sequel comes along, what do we do with all that content? We can give [consumers] backwards compatibility with those levels.”
Then a demo for LBP is coming, hopefully it has enough content in the demo for users to get hooked and create there own level.
It’s unclear whether any of the almost 2 million user generated levels will be playable in the demo, but it should “capture [the game's] essence.”
They are still actively working on LittleBigPlanet. So I wouldn’t expect LBP 2 anytime soon. Sounds like they are working on stuff other than new costumes, lol. Like sharing objects with other users.
More additions to the game are also on the way, such as one that was originally planned for the game, but axed along the way — sharing objects in a similar way to sharing levels. So more features — “changing the tools themselves, and changing how you share — are coming.”
