Seems like the ongoing saga between Lionhead Studios and Microsoft has a few more chapters left to tell…
According to the site MCV, multiple sources have confirmed that discussions are currently ongoing to save the free-to-play multiplayer RPG. This stems from the consultation process Microsoft is conduction with the members of staff at Lionhead.
Supposedly, Microsoft are inquiring with staff members as to whether they would prefer to carry on working on Fable Legends, potentially as an independent studio though this couldn’t be confirmed, or if they would rather just take their redundancy package at the end of the month and go on to different things.
Whether or not this is to be believed is up to you, and even if it is true, there’s no guarantee that Fable Legends will be saved. Most of the freelance workers have already gone, and those developers that remain have been offered work elsewhere, so perhaps those left at Lionhead might just want to cut their losses and go. One thing is for sure though: this story is far from over.
