Report: Microsoft kills Milo

Molyneux's Kinect title allegedly canned yesterday, with 19 staff let go

Development on Lionhead's ambitious Kinect title Project Milo (aka Milo & Kate) has been cancelled, sources close to the project have told sister site Eurogamer.

The rumour has it that the plug was pulled on the child-interaction game yesterday, leading to the loss of 19 contractors.

Reportedly, the title's tech will be pooled into a future Fable title.

This is not the first assertion that Milo & Kate would not make it to market, with Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg claiming it was merely a tech demo this June.

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has repeatedly denied such claims in the past. However, neither he or Microsoft have commented on the current allegation as yet.
