Peter Molyneux: "I'm only going to make one more game"

24 hours after the release of Curiosity, Peter Molyneux says he only plans to make one more game – the big project that his studio 22Cans is working up to. Plus, there’s something “huge” happening this Friday. (Android, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, PC, Peter Molyneux, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sure Pete. Whatever you say.

"I'm going to make one more game"

A year later after that game is released...

"Due to popular demand that I generated and my inability to keep thoughts to myself I am going to make one more game"
MAJ0R  +   931d ago
I read every bit of that in Molyneux's overly dramatic voice.
Mounce  +   931d ago
Same as MAJ0R.


If he truly makes JUST one more game....Good, am glad! If not.....well, to be expected. For situations like Kojima, it's a GOOD thing he keeps going and doesn't stop with MGS for the time being since the games are still awesome to play, but for Peter, all he is more noted for other than his exaggerations upon exaggerations, is Fable....that of which people said just got worse and worse after the first.

And the first was pretty awful. I was so hyped for the first and it let me down big time.

More like "That game sucked, so I'm going to make this one last game which is 10x better"

Rinse and Repeat

"I'm going to make one more game"...but will create hundreds of "experiments" as part of that game's design process, spanning dozens of years.

I'm pretty disappointed that his last title isn't "Acorns the Game"

In other words he's gonna make a dozen more.......
I_am_Batman  +   931d ago
.....and everyone of them will be the best game he ever created.
baldulf  +   931d ago
...and everyone one of them would be another scam.
Blankman85  +   931d ago
So he created 22 Cans to make 2 games?
IronFistChinMi  +   931d ago
They can continue without him, like Lionhead.
LewisDenby  +   931d ago
No. They're making several experimental mini-games, then one full game. They've always been clear on that. But Molyneux's never said it would be HIS last game before.
mafiahajeri  +   931d ago
Yes why do you think he called it 22 cans ;)
Alos88  +   931d ago | Funny
On Friday Molneux will announce his new IP, titled More.
"As I made clear recently, I am only making one More game- there will be no sequels, prequels or anything."

that would be some epic trolling!

Peter Molyneux: "I'm only going to make one more game"

And with that, a great cheer went up from the crowd and there was much rejoicing and merriment!

Sure he made some great games in the past but ever since the original Fable it's been all hype and no substance. I'm sure he's made his money by now anyway.
Anon1974  +   931d ago
I'll never understand why some take issue with Molyneux. To me, the guy's created some of the best games I've played in my lifetime. He's pushed the medium of gaming. He's created new genres, and for that his contribution to gaming puts him up with the likes of Sid Meier, Kojima, Carmack, Miyamoto, Tim Schafer, etc..

And yet what has been Molyneux's perceived crime? The guy was passionate about his projects but didn't deliver 100% of the time with the features he wanted to. I think the gaming world would be a better place if all developers were as excited about their projects as Molyneux has been over the years. I always shake my head when people act like it's a bad thing.

So not every single feature he raved about made it into his games, or turned out the way he had hoped. It's such a small thing when you put it into perspective to the man's enormous contribution to the industry. I'd rather a developer shoot for the moon and miss than not try at all. I don't care if developers over-promise as long as they push themselves and their teams to try to fulfil those promises. And when you look at the library of titles under Molyneux's belt when it's all said and done, it's clear he's delivered.

The industry needs more people like Molyneux who have passion and vision for what they do and I, for one, am greatly saddened by the prospect of the gaming world without him. There's a reason why the man's been inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame, and it's well deserved.

The man has shaped the industry for the better for nearly 3 decades and for that he deserves the respect of gamers everywhere, and yet all anyone goes on about is how Fable 3 was a disappointment, or bring up Fable journey or Milo. It's like saying the Rolling Stones suck because one album wasn't so hot, or that Gordie Howe wasn't a legend because his last few seasons weren't on par with some of his others. Quite frankly, if you can't recognize this man's contribution to gaming, there's something wrong with you.

It's not necessarily a bad thing to be happy about what you do. But, you start losing credibility when you continue to sell what you do as being 'bigger and more innovative' when in the end it ends up being the exact same thing with a different shine to it. It's like that kid at the pool who wants his mom and dad to keep watching him do the same cannonball jump off the diving board over and over, and treats each one as if it's something entirely new. The parents are going to get annoyed and start tuning him out.
J86blum  +   930d ago
No. He is his worst PR. If he "Deliverd" as much as he has,"talked, hyped, and said a game will." Then I should still be playing FABLE 2 and have no need for any other adventure game.

Theres a line between passion for what you do, and building something up and not letting your work or product speak for itself. Had he not hyped or pushed the FABLE games like he did then they would of been better with each entry, but he kept running his mouth with each one.

In short fable 1 was good not everything promised but good none the less, Fable 2 ok everything he said isnt here or isnt going on but yeah it adds onto what made the first good, Fable 3 he hyped that game like it was the 2nd coming of Super Mario Bros. and when played I felt like I was playing a FABLE 2 DLC. It didn't live up to the hype, didn't live up to what he said, what he promised. so what was a decent entry in the series wasnt taking as so, but had all this hype which had people dislike it.

If he made a game, talked about it some and not rode his own hype train, then when it came out I can go in with my own thoughts and what to..or not to expect and enjoy it as is.
mcstorm  +   931d ago
Well if this is true Peter I hope you have a well deserved retirement and can go out with a Bang with your last game.

Even if you don't like the guy and you have been playing games longer than just this gen you have to have respect for him as he has given us some amazing game.

Dungeon Keeper, Populous, Black & White, Theme Park and Fable are just some of the games I have played of his and they were very good games. Black and White being the main stand out game for me.

It will be a sad day to see his last game but every one has to quite at some point and if Peter decides to do that I wish him all the best.
GrahamGolden  +   931d ago
ye ye we all saw the "best rpg ever made" like he said how hard it failed,FABLE 3 was a P.O.S
i wont mention fable journey cause this crap is a different story
mcstorm  +   931d ago
Im sorry I if you look at what I put it said Fable not Fable 3.

Fable was a really good game number 2 and 3 were ok but not as good as the 1st but like I also said for someone who has been playing games since the 90s Dungeon Keeper, Populous, Black & White & Theme Park where some of the best games he has made.

O and what a way to use your one and only bubble let me guess you will now PM me going on with your self like the rest of the people on here that know nothing about gaming apart from what's happened this gen.
Next time read what people put before you make your self look stupid again.

I hope that he turns his hand to making an atmospheric 3D platform game.
Fishy Fingers  +   931d ago
Must be reassuring for his employees.
SilentNegotiator  +   930d ago
Yeah, that's a great motivational tool for his brand new studio, amirite?

"Well, this is pretty much it for me!"
".....but we just got here"
"Yes, but I've lost interest already"
NYC_Gamer  +   931d ago
I'm waiting for dude to release the game and then complain about how bad it was
e-p-ayeaH  +   931d ago
This guy needs to go independent if he wants to make interesting and unique games.
InTheLab  +   931d ago
That has to kill morale at 22 Cans...wait, it's Peter Molyneux. It's probably a lie. I'd bet his name isn't really Peter Molyneux...it's like Frank Smith or some s***.

Frank Smith is a fat ass liar...
MadMen  +   931d ago
I think Pete is a cool guy, when you read all this it really says this:

"I'm only going to make one more disappointment that doesnt live up to my hype"
WeAreLegion  +   931d ago
Oh, thank God. For some reason, I was confusing he and David Cage in my head. Lol.

I'm so glad this isn't David Cage.

ginsunuva  +   931d ago
It says on the bottom of the app description for Curiosity that their studio will make 21 more games. Hence the name 22cans
Nodoze  +   931d ago
Good...He was all hype anyway.
ALLWRONG  +   931d ago
I'm going to make one more game that will be full of promises that will never make it into the final game.
DigitalRaptor  +   931d ago
This guy survives off his own hype and sensationalism. Curiosity is nothing but time-wasting junk. He's not made anything worth the hype many years.
