Peter Molyneux, the creator of such hit games as the Fable, Populous and Black and White, is leaving Lionhead studios and Microsoft after completion of Fable: The Journey. It’s not for any sinister reason such as Microsoft forcing him out, but rather Molyneux has made the decision for himself. Here is the statement he made discussing his departure.
“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.”
Shortly after the news of his departure Molyneux revealed on Twitter a detail about his future venture. He will be beginning anew with the startup of a company called 22 Cans.
We know nothing about Molyneux’s future projects. Will he be making AAA titles or will he be making smaller more personal gaming experiences? Only time will tell.
