Lionhead 'new' projects are old concepts

Survivor and Justice no longer in development at Fable studio

Artwork for two unannounced Lionhead projects appearing on the web are not currently in development, despite speculation they could be the next titles from the Fable studio.

Concept art for two games – labelled Survivor and Justice – has been on display at Leading Light Design, and was picked up over the weekend by a number of blogs including Destructoid, claiming it was representative of new projects in development at Lionhead.

However, neither projects are in development at the studio – it's believed that one project originated before Lionhead was acquired by Microsoft in 2006.

"These are old projects that we're no longer working on," a spokesperson for the company told GamesIndustry.biz.

Those anticipating Lionhead's next true project after Fable II won't have long to wait, as the studio boss is due to give a lecture at next month's Game Developers Conference, entitled Lionhead Experiments Revealed.
