LBP 2 In The Works?

Sometimes you read things and think “that shouldn’t be there”, like this BBC article on LittleBigPlanet.  It reads fine (in fact it’s quite a good read) but this bit stands out like a sore thumb: “Even before the game has hit the shops, the team are already at work on a sequel.”

The article goes on:  “LittleBigPlanet has big potential. Right now it is just a game but the firm, with Sony, are in talks to turn it into a franchise that could mean spin offs including comics, cartoons, and action figures as well as a publishing platform itself for other brands’ content.”

A sequel?  Already?  Is this really the case or is this the BBC getting confused with downloadable content?
