Sony and Double Eleven sign exclusivity deal

"Only on PlayStation"

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced it’s signed a contract with LittleBigPlanet Vita developer Double Eleven which sees the studio creating games exclusively for PlayStation platforms.

The studio was formed by ex-Rockstar Leeds engineers in 2010. At E3 last month, they were revealed to be the minds behind the PlayStation Vita edition 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 [PlayStation Vita] and we’ve very pleased with the progress the team have made on this hugely anticipated title,” explained Michael Denny, Senior Vice President, SCE Worldwide Studios Europe.

“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,” said Lee Hutchinson, CEO at Double Eleven. “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.”
