Media Molecule Ending Live Support For Dreams To Work On New Project
Media Molecule has announced today that it will be discontinuing live support for Dreams later this year to focus on a new project.
The studio revealed its decision in an official blog post on the Dreams website and will be putting a stop to live support after September 1st. The post states that the priorities of the studio have evolved and will be shifting towards an “exciting new project” which is not Dreams 2 or related to the Dreams IP.
Players will still be able to experience, create and share dreams together after September. However, there will be no future updates or in-game events like All Hallows Eve. Media Molecule looked back fondly on their time with Dreams saying:
We know this won’t be an easy message for everyone to hear, and it’s certainly not been an easy decision – Dreams has been a special project for Media Molecule and helping this burgeoning community of game developers, tinkerers, creatives, collaborators and dreamers grow and express themselves remains one of the best things we’ve ever done.

It’s not all bad news for fans of the creation system game as the studio plans to improve animation along with one final Create mode update and the highly anticipated Tren. Player creations will also continue to be on full display in the in-game curation. Critical bug fixes will continue to roll out until September and a new server is set to be introduced in May. The new server will largely act to “preserve the security and stability of Dreams” Full patch notes can be found in the same blog post.
Media Molecule offered little details about their upcoming project but teased that there would be more information to come.
