The famous Lionhead studios has been in a bit of a lurch since their founder and head Peter Molyneux left last year to open up another new studio and work on new projects, but it looks like now they will have a bit more of a direction as they have appointed a new boss at Lionhead Studios. This new boss is John Needham, formerly of Cryptic Studios and Gazillion Entertainment where he was involved with some bigger online titles, including Star Trek Online and Marvel Universe Online.
It will be interesting to see what Needham brings to the table at Lionhead Studios as he has a lot of experience with subscription-based MMOs and free-to-play games, one can only assume that this might be a new direction for Lionhead Studios. According to a statement from Needham they will focus on premium services and triple-A titles at Lionhead as they are still a part of Microsoft Studios. Maybe we’ll see a Fable MMO on the next Xbox?
