There aren't going to be major publishers lined up to buy an empty shell of a studio.

The Fable/Lionhead sale (for 100s of millions lol) rumor was started by Craptaku, after an. "Interview" with an alleged "Lionhead Dev". Gears of War sold for less than a 100 million; the gears franchise is much more successful than Fable with more attached merchandise.

Well sure, Gears of War is undoubtedly a lot more valuable than Fable as an IP.

I don't doubt that there were interested parties. The Fabe IP is just worth more to MS than Lionhead were and I bet MS either tried to sell Lionhead without the IP or asked for too much. Still, if MS see a future in Fable I believe they'll end up rebooting it, the IP is damaged after some bad outings.

People would rather develop their own stuff.

Of course the IPs were the sought out prize , no one wanted the Studio . Good thing MS kept the IP , look forward to seeing what they do with it .
