Is Assassin’s Creed’s first entry in 2D an addicting Metroid-like affair? Or is it just as boring as the other games have been in three dimensions?

Peter Molyneux To Leave Lionhead Studios And Microsoft

Posted on Thursday, March 8 @ 04:29:20 Eastern by

Through various tweets, Black & White and Fable creator Peter Molyneux has revealed that he will be leaving Microsoft and Lionhead "for something really amazing, scary and brave", "a new company called 22 Cans".

Why that name? Because "today is 7th day of 3rd month of 12th year. Add them all up and you get 22. 22 cans".

Molyneux will not be leaving immediately. Through statements made to Kotaku, he will be leaving as the creative head of Microsoft Studios Europe and Lionhead Studios, which he co-founded over a decade ago in 1997, after finishing Fable: The Journey.

Showcased at Microsoft's Spring Showcase not more than a week ago, the game fully utlilizes the Kinect. There's no word on whether his reservations on the quality of Fable: The Journey is in part the cause for his departure, but he hardly regrets his time with Lionhead Studios:
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.
Studio co-founder Mark Webley will be taking his place at Lionhead.
