Lionhead hit with Layoffs

It’s always sad to be reporting on the loss of work and in this case it is no exception to that rule as Microsoft has stated that they have laid off just under “ten percent of staff” at Lionhead Studios. This follows the release of the studio’s latest game Fable: The Journey and while it is common for studio’s to downsize after a release it is still a shame to see people out of work.

I have been a big fan of Lionhead since the original Black and White on PC so this news definitely saddens me. I hope things work out of the people affected by these layoffs.
