Peter Molyneux is to leave Lionhead Studios and Microsoft.

Speaking to Kotaku, the man behind Fable announced: “It is with mixed emotions that I made the decision to leave Microsoft and Lionhead Studios, the company that I co-founded in 1997, at the conclusion of development of Fable: The Journey.

He continued: “I remain extremely passionate and proud of the people, products and experiences that we created, fromBlack & Whiteto Fableto our pioneering work withMilo and Kate for the Kinect platform.

However, I felt the time was right to pursue a new independent venture. I’d like to thank the team at Lionhead, as well as our partners at Microsoft Studios for their support, dedication and incredible work over the years.

Fable: The Journey will release on the 4th September.
