Microsoft confirms layoffs at Lionhead Studios

Fable series developer Lionhead is undergoing layoffs today, following the completion of the studio's latest title Fable: The Journey, Microsoft confirms today, as reported by MCVUK.

A small number of positions are at risk, with affected employees notified today, according to Microsoft.

"As is common in the games industry, a smaller headcount is needed as projects kick-off and ramp up as full-production gets underway," reads a released statement from the publisher.

Those affected will work closely with Microsoft Studios to find a new position in its wider network which encompasses Rare, Soho Productions, and the recently announced studio in London, England.

The Microsoft statement added that by the end of 2012 these layoffs will account for less than 10 percent of the overall headcount at Lionhead studios, with over 100 additional employees expected to be added to Microsoft Studios in the United Kingdom through until June 2013. No exact number of those affected is available.

Earlier in March, creative director Peter Molyneux quit Lionhead to create his own independent studio. Lionhead Studios since released Fable: The Journey, a Kinect exclusive, which received a 4.5 out of 10 review from Polygon.
