Earlier this week, Lionhead was potentially going to be closed alongside Press Play with Microsoft in discussion with employees at the UK based studio.
Now it seems, we may have seen the results of those discussions as the studio has reappeared on the Microsoft Studios list after being removed earlier in the week. A number of internal studios were removed from the publishers list and seemed to focus mainly around those working on Kinect projects. The list of removed studios now reads; Press Play Studios, BigPark, Good Science, Function, LXP, Project Spark, and SOTA.
Could this mean that discussions between Microsoft and Lionhead ended on a positive note? Does it mean Fable will live on and if so does it include Fable Legends or will the UK studio be working on a true sequel? Time will tell.
