Lionhead Studios has closed their doors for good as of today.

“We can confirm that after much consideration over the six week consultation period with Lionhead employees, we have reached the decision to close Lionhead Studios,” the representative said. “We have nothing but heart-felt thanks for the team at Lionhead for their significant contributions to Xbox and the games industry.”

“We remain committed to the development communities in the UK and Europe, and have been working to support Lionhead employees in finding new opportunities at Microsoft or in the wider gaming industry,” the Microsoft representative told Polygon. “All employees have been provided with the option of assistance on internal job search and placement or external job search support.”

It was announced just last month that the studio was shut down after the cancellation of their last in progress-title, Fable Legends, would be canceled and that Microsoft would be closing the studio.
