Ted Timmins, who has been with Lionhead Studios since 2004, has decided to call it quits.
I hope MS finds someone to breathe new life into the series. Fable legends looks interesting atm but the series has been going downhill since fable2. Phil Harrsion and Ken lobb need to find the right person to fill timmins vacant position asap... fans need fable legends to be great.
Not sure what you are expecting as it has been made clear that Legends will be a Co-Op-fest and not play like the main series at all.
This isnt a bad thing, Fable 3 sucked, and Anniversary wasnt all that.
why don't they start a new franchise instead?
exactly what i was thinking
Remember Black & White? Black & White 2? The Movies? The first Fable? Several members of Lionhead left after all those games and formed Media Molecule. That's why everything since has been pretty meh.
Yeah Phil harrrison spear headed that and also helped in securing evolution studios and london studios for sony.. I'm guessing that's the reason MS brought him on board.. He has already helped create MS lift and i think there are some other unannounced studios coming up..Phil Spencer stated that recently.
Not to mention Molyneux has left the founding father.. His ideas were always a breathe of fresh air in the gaming industry (dungeon keeper,populous, theme hospital, theme park, black & white, fable). He was truly a legend and although Godus isn't as great as previous titles thanks to a smaller studio the fact hes missing from lionhead is partly why its not the powerhouse it once was.
Molyneux just said the things we wanted to hear, he would recite a script that would entice you in with all these 'amazing' 'groundbreaking' ideas that never came to fruition. Would rather someone be up front and not beat around the bush.
Good let it die the fable series got worse everytime they released a new one... the first was the best!
Disagree 2 was better.
He had one kinect too many.
They only made one kinect game...
Good...out with the old, in with the new. Apparently Timmins didn't like the direction the franchise was headed (MMO-ish), but Fable was stagnated as it was.
Maybe I might be the only one, but I can honestly say I enjoyed Fable 1, Fable 2 and Fable 3. But that maybe because I never really bought into the hype. So what was foretold of Fable 1 never came to realization, well I was ok with that, the rest of the game was awesome. And the same can be said about 2 and 3 for me. But that is my opinion, and I do not force that on anyone else.
I REALLY enjoy 'Fable 2' and 'Fable 3'. Lionhead needs to either continue or end the Fable storyline with "Fable 4". There's so much stuff left undone... Is Theresa of the Shadow Court? What will happen with Reaver and the Shadow Court? What they also should do, is bring back The Heroes Guild. Demolish Reaver's mansion and rebuild The Guild. Bring the heroes ancestors together to protect Albion once and for all. Kill Reaver?
