Lionhead studios may close down as fable legends is cancelled


Sad news for fans of the Fable series and the studio behind them Lionhead Studios, as Microsoft has announced that Fable Legends has been cancelled.

It was also revealed that the fate of Lionhead studios now also hangs in the balance.
Hanno Lemke, General manager at Microsoft studios Europe had the following to say in a post on Xbox Wire: “After much consideration we have decided to cease development of Fable Legends, and are in discussions with employees about the proposed closure of Lionhead Studios in the UK” he continued “Additionally, we will close Press Play Studios in Denmark, and sunset development on Project Knoxville”.

We wish the Teams at both Lionhead Studios and Press Play Studios the all the best and thank them for all the enjoyment that their games brought us.
