Not only a ‘Fable’ studio, Lionhead working on non-‘Fable’ project

Microsoft-owned Lionhead Studios has revealed that its unannounced project will be a non-Fable game, according to a report today from GameSpot.

Lionhead Studios studio head John Needham said, in an interview with Eurogamer, that the studio is “primarily” a Fable studio but the developers have been designing other games as well.

“We’re working on other different sorts of games as well that we’re not talking about right now and won’t be Fable-esque,” Needham said.

Lionhead did develop two games without ties to Fable –– Black & White in 2001 from Electronic Arts and The Movies in 2005 from Activision –– but since being acquired by Microsoft in 2006 has focused on the RPG franchise.

Since then, Lionhead has pushed out Fable 2, Fable 3 and Fable: The Journey, and they are developing an HD reboot with Fable Anniversary and the online-focused Fable Legends.

The studio launched the original Fable in 2004.

However, studio director Stuart Whyte did point to those earlier non-Fable games as evidence that the studio could work outside the Fable series.

“We've worked on a number of Fable games. We did The Movies. We did Black & White. We're not just a Fable studio,” Whyte said. “Judging by where we are at the moment we've had a lot of Fable games in recent times, but I wouldn't say that we're just Fable. I can't really say any more at this point.”
