Media Molecule is Ending Live Support For Dreams

educational videogames dreams

This September, Media Molecule is ending support for Dreams though that’s not quite the nightmare it may seem.

Dreams is a game/development tool that (after a period of Early Access) launched on the PlayStation in February 2020. It’s become hugely popular, not least because it’s pretty friendly. It was even being used to make an animated movie, though we’ve not heard much news about that title of late.

However, as of this September 2023 there’ll be no new live events and the annual Dreams awards, the Impys, will end. According to Media Molecule, who also created the Little Big Planet series, “..we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue live support for Dreams after 1st September, 2023 to shift our focus to an exciting new project.”

Players will still be able to share their creations, but there’ll be no more live events or new content. There’s also no multiplayer or PlayStation VR2 support on the way. In other words, Dreams isn’t going away – yet – but its content updates are done.

Still, maybe Media Molecule are working on Dreams 2, eh? Unfortunately not, no. The statement also confirms they’re not making Dreams 2 or anything Dreams related. Could their next project be a creative tool? It’s entirely possible but we wouldn’t count on it.

So, if you’re a Dreams fan, keep on creating, by all means. But you won’t be getting anything in the way of new content.

He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
