Microsoft Closing Lionhead Studios, Cancels Fable Legends

According to this blog post, Lionhead Studios is no more and development of Fable Legends has been cancelled. Microsoft is also closing down Press Play, just four years after acquiring the studio.

Today, I have some difficult changes to announce that affect some of our Microsoft Studios teams and projects in the UK and Denmark. 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.
