Peter Molyneux To Leave Lionhead Studios And Microsoft
Posted on Thursday, March 8 @ 04:29:20 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
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:
Studio co-founder Mark Webley will be taking his place at Lionhead.
