Fable Legends, the last game developed by Lionhead Studios was never officially released and was officially shut down on 13 April 2016.
It’s not all bad news, as Sony assisted ex-Lionhead Studios employees by recruiting developers for other projects.
Lionhead Studios created some influential games during its lifetime, including the Fable and Black & White franchises.
