As revealed by The Big K (http://kotaku.com/5890594/peter-molyneux-is-leaving-lionhead-studios-and-microsoft-will-finish-kinect-fable), Molyneux ‚?? creator of games like Magic Carpet, Syndicate, Black & White, The Movies, and Fable ‚?? is leaving Microsoft-owned Lionhead to join a start-up company. The former Bullfrogger, who was head of Microsoft Studios in Europe, said: ‚??It is with mixed emotions that I made the decision to leave Microsoft and Lionhead Studios, the company that I co-founded in 1997, at the conclusion of development of Fable: The Journey‚?¶ However, I felt the time was right to pursue a new independent venture.‚?? He will also act as a creative consultant on Fable‚??s arm-waving variant for the Kinect.

Molyneux joins a new Guildford-based company, 22 Cans (http://www.gamesindustry.biz/resources/directory/company/22-cans), which Molyneux has described (https://twitter.com/#!/pmolyneux/status/177367286859051008) as ‚??something really amazing, scary and brave‚??. This new company was founded by Lionhead‚??s former chief technical officer Tim Rance, whose credits include Populous, Black & White, and Fable. They probably plan to make games.
