LittleBigPlanet 2 was delisted worldwide on PlayStation 3 in mid-January of 2021. Reports of the game’s removal began circulating online around January 18th. As of March 2021 Sony has given no explanation but speculation suggests that possible licensed content featured in this particular entry in the series could be the cause. Previously, in November of 2020, Sony’s official hub for LittleBigPlanet creators at LBP.me went offline. At the time it was explained to be “backend updates and maintenance” but as of March 2021 the site has yet to return or its absence explained by Sony.
About the Game
Over the years the LittleBigPlanet series has offered hundreds of pieces of official DLC featuring original creations and licensed IPs. As is to be expected, not all of this content remains available and has been delisted at various points since the first game’s release in 2009. Wikipedia and the LBP Fandom wiki both have detailed lists of this content.
