Lionhead's destiny is at stake with Fable Legends cancelled
7 March, 2016

More news from Microsoft, which recently announced that the next Fable game is cancelled and there are plans on closing beloved Lionhead studio.

Lionhead's destiny is at stake with Fable Legends cancelled

In official statement it is said the changes come to internal development with Lionhead at risk of being shut down and dev studio Press Play shuttered.

After much consideration we have decided to cease development on Fable Legends, and are in discussions with employees about the proposed closure of Lionhead Studios in the UK. Additionally, we will close Press Play Studios in Denmark, and sunset development on Project Knoxville.

These have been tough decisions and we have not made them lightly, nor are they a reflection on these development teams – we are incredibly fortunate to have the talent, creativity and commitment of the people at these studios. The Lionhead Studios team has delighted millions of fans with the Fable series over the past decade. Press Play imbued the industry with a unique creative spirit behind games like Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Kalimba, which both captured passionate fans. These changes are taking effect as Microsoft Studios continues to focus its investment and development on the games and franchises that fans find most exciting and want to play.


Previously Lionhead had plans on releasing Fable Legends, next mupliplayer istallment in Fable franchise. Obviously, that’s not the case anymore. In the meantime, Press Play was working on Project Knoxville. The studio’s latest release was Max and the Curse of Brotherhood.

It’s very sad news indeed to hear that beloved studio behind titles like Black and White and Movies might be closed. Share your thoughts on whole Microsoft situation in the comments below.
