Five instrumental Lionhead staffers have quit the Microsoft-owned company to form their own studio: Another Place Productions. The team will be headed up by Dene and Simon Carter, who created the original Fable, and augmented by executive producer Jeremie Texier, art director John McCormack and technical director Guillaume Portes.
Though the fledgling venture is still in the earliest stages, Another Place Productions plan to develop "high-quality, meaningful experiences that will inspire audiences worldwide." They'll be focusing on digital platforms such as PSN, XBLA and Steam. We'll keep an eye on their progress, and it will be interesting to see whether their departure will influence Fable: The Journey and the future of the franchise.
