Peter Molyneux to leave Lionhead and Microsoft
The man behind Microsoft's Fable series and the memorable Milo and Kate Kinect tech demo, Peter Molyneux has announced that he will be leaving his Lionhead and Microsoft once Fable: The Journey is completed.
Peter Molyneux co-founded Lionhead creating the Black and White series and began creating the Fable series on the original Xbox before Microsoft acquired the studio and turned it into one of their top internal developers.
Molyneux is leaving to join the independent studio 22 Cans which was set up by former Lionhead chief technical officer Tim Rance.
He said, "It is with mixed emotions that I made the decision to leave Microsoft and Lionhead Studios, the company that I co-founded in 1997, at the conclusion of development of Fable: The Journey. I remain extremely passionate and proud of the people, products and experiences that we created, from Black & White to Fable to our pioneering work with Milo And Kate for the Kinect platform. However, I felt the time was right to pursue a new independent venture. I'd like to thank the team at Lionhead, as well as our partners at Microsoft Studios for their support, dedication and incredible work over the years."
