In a post at xbox.com here Microsoft have announced that they are closing Lionhead UK. Lionhead are noted for making Fable games for the Xbox but on the PC they are more known for the Black & White games. I’m not sure anyone is very surprised, the Fable series was very “meh” and they didn’t seem to be up to a great deal of late beyond Fable Legends, which is now canned.
In the statement, Microsoft said they’d help staff affected by the news find new jobs at Xbox or elsewhere in the industry. We wish them the best of luck and would like to say: thanks for the games!
