Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has told GamesIndustry.biz that the company's next title will be "very, very different" to anything that the iconic designer has made before, and that it is a "ridiculously ambitious" project.

Talking in an interview ahead of last week's GC Asia conference, Molyneux revealed that work on the as-yet-unannounced game is already well underway.

"We've actually been working on another project now for a while, and obviously it's ridiculously ambitious, but it's ridiculously ambitious in a very simple way," he revealed. "It's a simple and pure idea, and very, very different to anything I've done before.

"I haven't said anything about the game to anyone, and neither should I until next year, but I think it'll surprise people.

"It's certainly different to what you might think Lionhead would do. Or maybe not, actually, thinking about it, but I think we need look at this industry, and think about who our audience is, and that applies to this new game," he added.

The company's current title Fable 2, set for release next month, is one of Microsoft's key Holiday launches. Further details on the new project are unlikely to come before next year.

I get pretty nervous when Molyneux starts talking about super ambitious stuff. My natural response is to wish can't he just make something cool and polish it up until it properly delivers...

Hopefully my preconceptions will be updated after playing Fable 2 :)
