Media Molecule has announced it will no longer provide live support for its PS4 game creator Dreams. The studio says it was a difficult decision but the studio made it in order to work on a “new exciting project.”
Support for Dreams will come to an end on 1 September 2023. However, players will still be able to purchase the game and play all user-created content without any issues. Media Molecule says that all live game events such as the DreamsCom, All Hallows’ Dreams or Impy Awards will end.

There will also no longer be any in-game updates for Dreams after September 2023. This means the game version will remain the same and the studio won’t release any content or patches for it.
In a statement, Media Molecule says the studio is proud of the work they have done. They have also received a tremendous amount of support from the world and grown a community beyond anything they expected.
“We’re incredibly proud of the work we’ve done in developing Dreams… and we are endlessly grateful to the community for their belief and continuous contributions since launch,” reads the post. 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. Thank you for being part of it with us – we look forward to you joining us on our next adventure.”
Media Molecule still plans on releasing its “much anticipated Tren” update, its changes to its animation system and its final Create mode update before September.
The studio will also migrate the Dreams server in May which will result in some changes to the online services. For example, the server limit will now be limited to 5GB. Some features will also no longer be compatible with the new server. The studio has detailed all of this information in the full blog post.
Media Molecule says its new exciting game isn’t a sequel to Dreams or related to the Dreams IP. This means whatever the studio is working on, is something new. Perhaps a new LittleBigPlanet?
Dreams was released back in February 2020 for PS4.
