Peter Molyneux has left Lionhead to join a start-up
Breaking news from Kotaku this morning points to Peter Molyneux departing the studio he cofounded for something new. The innovator has been the brains behind such great titles as Syndicate, Dungeon Keeper, Populous, Black & White, Fable, and list keeps going. Point being, Mr. Molyneux has made a few video games in his life and hopes to continue making more. Here is his official statement:
He later revealed on Twitter that he would be joining the studio 22 Cans. For Molyneux this is a case of history repeating itself. He built Bullfrog up and sold it to EA; he built Lionhead and sold it to Microsoft. He will also work as a consultant on Fable: The Journey until its release. I am sure his time with 22 Cans will create something unique, full of promise and big dreams.
