Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans will “take a break” from game development to pursue other ventures, he announced in a Twitter thread.
“So a few months ago I did a bit of lockdown-inspired soul searching and decided to step down from ‘Dreams developer’ to ‘Dreams fan’—take a break from game development, a career I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy since I was a spotty 15 year-old,” Evans said.
He continued, “Media Molecule is a wonderful place, I can’t imagine making games anywhere else; but I wondered what else an old fart like me could do in this world? I’ve been in the game development bubble so long I’m not yet sure what’s next, or even out there, for someone like me.
“For anyone worrying about Dreams—don’t! What Media Molecule are doing on Dreams at the moment is gonna blow your minds and though I’ll miss them all, I’ll be cheering from the sidelines! Thanks to them for the first 13 wonderful years and here’s to Media Molecule’s next 13!”
Dreams is available now for PlayStation 4.
