Peter Molyneux, one of the most respected video game developers in the world and one of the top creative minds on the Xbox team, is leaving Microsoft and Lionhead Studios, Kotaku has learned.

"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.," Molyneux said in a statement to Kotaku. Fable: The Journey is this year's forthcoming Fable game for the Xbox 360 Kinect. Molyneux will continue to be involved in that title as a creative consultant.
Molyneux is exiting both his position as the leader of Lionhead and his role as the creative head of Microsoft Studios Europe, which primarily consisted of overseeing Lionhead and Rare. Lionhead will be run by studio co-founder Mark Webley. Microsoft is not immediately naming a new head of the European studios.

Molyneux will move on to an as-yet unpublicized independent venture, one that ends his tenure at Lionhead. That studio is responsible, under Molyneux, for more than a decade's worth of ambitious games.

"I remain extremely passionate and proud of the people, products and experiences that we created," Molyneux said, "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."

Holy sh*t Fable 4 might actually have a chance. :O

Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. A clock without a craftsman. It's too late. Always has been, always will be.....too late.

Fable 4 will be amazing coz troll Peter will not be in team , tweeting over hyped things and then giving out underwhelming results

What did you guys say to him? :lol:


I wanted a pic with him, so I gave the DSLR to Sam and asked him to take a snap. Sam tried looking at the DSLR LCD screen instead of through the view-finder at which point, I prompted him to look through the viewfinder.

At this, Peter quipped, "It is amazing that cameras have changed so much over the years that now you have to tell a person to look through the viewfinder".

Quirky? I thought it was a perfectly normal statement.

He is very soft spoken guy. While the other presenters were jumping around the rooms, describing their games, Peter just sat back on the TV stand, talking about the features, nudging Geoff Keighley around the game; Keighley volunteered to demo the game in our room.

He wanted to make new ips but MS forced him to make Fable games after Fable games :|...Milo and Kate was canceled & then a new open world game Justice was canceled and one more game was canceled.....


check this out...




Its good that he is not working with MS now....MS is worst video game publisher ever... They killed Rare and now they are killing Lionhead and Turn 10... :P

New studio will be like Robot entertainment
It will be a 2nd party studio creating exclusive Xbox games ..

Peter can try out new IP and MS can milk Fable .. Win Win situation for both of them

And killing Turn 10 .. Have u gone nuts :doh:
Forza Horizon is made by Playground studios and not by Turn 10.
2 years are enough for a new racing game to come .. PD takes 5 years it doesn't mean Turn 10 should take 5 years :lol:

^I have no gripe with bots dissing GT 5 or any other PS3 game really. Everyone knows GT 5 is way better than Forza 4. Let them cry and whine. Maybe all Forzas combined are equal to GT 5.
