Ex-Lionhead Devs form Flaming Fowl Studios

After having such high hopes for Lionhead’s “Project Milo” back in the late 00’s, it’s good to see them riding out again in the form of “Flaming Fowl Studios”.

There’s life after Lionhead both for the studio’s developers and its biggest franchise. As reported by IGN, ex-Lionhead developers Craig Oman, Mike West and Marcus Lynn have formed Flaming Fowl Studios to finish a project that had been in the works for a year and a half before Lionhead’s closure.

Microsoft announced the closure of Lionhead and the cancellation of its free-to-play Fable Legends role-playing game in March, saying it would instead be focusing “on the games and franchises that fans find most exciting and want to play.” Despite that slight, Microsoft apparently still saw value in Fable; reports earlier this month indicated that there were multiple suitors lined up to buy Lionhead, but deals fell apart when it became clear the Fable IP would not be changing hands.
