Sony Shuts Down Support for Its Most Creative Exclusive [UPDATE]

Sony and Media Molecule have announced the end of development for Dreams. The out-of-the-box game will stop receiving new content in just a few months.

Co-founder of Media Molecule, Mark Healey, has left the studio. In a recent announcement, the team insists that this will affect neither the pace of already planned tasks nor the development process of the studio's new project.

Dreams is by far one of the most, if not original Sony exclusives - and perhaps even the most original there is. This is because the game enables us to let our creativity run wild, making our own worlds, which are basically completely separate games that can represent a wide variety of genres. Unfortunately, active development of this unusual item will come to an end on September 1.

The entry published on the official website of Dreams reveals that the developers from Media Molecule are currently working on a new project, and this is what they want to focus on. Therefore, the 2020 game will stop receiving new content. Time-limited events will also cease. Those who have purchased the title will still be able to play it and use the online features.

Several updates are expected to appear in the last months of support. Among other things, the devs will add new elements to the level creation system. What is exceptionally important, however, Dreams will see a server migration at the end of May (for security reasons). This will cause some of the functionality available in the game to stop working. Among them are:

  1. the ability to archive projects;
  2. the option to observe friends' activity;
  3. the function of integrating the game with Twitch.

As if that wasn't enough, a limit of 5 GB of disk space available to players will be introduced. However, projects created before the server changes will not be included in this limit. The full list of features that will cease to work with the server migration can be found here.

It must be said that the end of the development of Dreams is rather sad. But who knows, maybe Media Molecule's next project will turn out to be even more exciting?
