Peter Molyneux has been promoted to creative director of European studios at Microsoft Games Studios.

He will continue to oversee Lionhead, along with extending his duties as creative director of Rare and other external projects.

Molyneux assumed the role in March, and said that the new position entails helping “internal and external talent realize their creative visions,” according to

“What you’re not going to see is ten Peter Molyneux games,” he said. “The value of this role is for someone like myself going in and making those little tiny lights of an idea shine as brightly as possible and ensuring everybody within the organization clearly understands why we’re making those titles, the purpose of those titles and their importance to Microsoft overall.

“All I’m going to be doing is making sure those lights are as bright as possible. People at Rare and other European studios are super, super bright and creative people and I’ll learn as much about design from them as they would from me.”

Congratulations, Peter.
