Due to changes at Microsoft Studios in both the UK and Denmark, the long-in-development Fable Legends
has been cancelled. Its developer, Lionhead Studios, who were responsible for the earlier Fable
games as well as Black & White
, is currently being proposed for closure. In addition, Press Play, another Microsoft-owned studio, has been shut down. According to Microsoft, "these have been tough decisions," and they have not been made lightly or serve to reflect on the development teams. The exact nature of these decisions is unclear.
I think I speak for everybody at RPGFan when I wish those who may be losing their jobs all the luck in the world.
