Don't close Lionhead Studios


Today is a very sad day for all Fable Fans. Microsoft decided to cancel the development of Fable Legends and to close Lionhead Studios.

Please sign this petition to show your support.

"Today we announced that we have made the difficult decision to cease development on Fable Legends, and are in discussions with employees about the proposed closure of Lionhead Studios. These decisions were not made lightly, nor do they reflect the talent of the studio, rather they are taking effect as Microsoft Studios continues to focus its investment and development on the games and franchises that fans find most exciting and engaging to play." Read more

Here you can read some poignant thoughts regarding Fable Legends.

"A dark day for equality & diversity in gaming happened the day before International Woman’s Day. The cancellation of Fable Legends and the proposed closure of Lionhead Studios represents, in my humble opinion, one of the biggest blows to the cause for having women and minorities better represented in videogames. For years we’ve been hearing the call for less first-person shooters with stoic white male leads and shoehorned token female characters. We need more strong female characters in gaming and better diversity. And Fable Legends has that by the bucket load. (...)

This total cancellation of what is an almost complete game is a stupid brain-dead and extremely short sighted move. It shows little regard for the gamers who have been waiting for Fable Legends and is down-right disrespectful towards all the people who worked on it to date. It puts Microsoft and the Xbox brand reputation in an even worse light than it was before. (...)" Read more

Please tweet to all your friends and (politely) let Microsoft know they're making a mistake.
