Fable Anniversary lead designer Ted Timmins has elected to leave Lionhead Studios, expressing nothing but fondness the studio that gave him his start in the industry over ten years ago,


“I’ve decided to leave Lionhead. This was a really tough decision, as I’ve had such an amazing time here. I’ve worked with incredibly talented people, had the chance to meet Fable fans in person and represent Xbox at some amazing events,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Lionhead has been such an integral part of my life, more than 1/3rd of it in fact. Which is why it’s a good time for change.”

Timmins referenced the neat cycle of his time with Lionhead; he began as a tester on the first Fable, and his last project was Fable Anniversary, having risen to lead designer.

“Thanks to everyone at Lionhead, Xbox, all the fans, journalists and event teams that have made my time here so awesome,” he added.

“Special thanks to Peter Molyneux for establishing a company that would give a spotty 18 year old with no talent or qualifications a chance.”

Molyenux repled with surprise, saying he thought Timmins was a “lifer”.

Timmins hasn’t given any public indication of his future plans.
