Microsoft roaring in for Lionhead?

Microsoft is close to acquiring Lionhead Studios, the developer helmed by industry legend Peter Molyneux and responsible for Fable on Xbox, according to rumours screaming out of the Games Developers Conference.

The speculation seems to have exploded after Molyneux failed to show up for a panel discussion at the GDC, which came to and end last week in San Jose. The buzz amongst attendees of the show is that Molyneux was catching the first flight back to Blighty – so he could sign on the dotted line with Microsoft.

And quoting ‘well-placed sources’, industry website GamesIndustry.biz is reporting that Microsoft has outbid rival games publisher Ubisoft for Lionhead. An announcement is expected within the next few days, according to GI.biz.
