Peter Molyneux left Lionhead to form his own studio and John Needham has taken his place. Since the studio is based in Europe, he will be reporting to Phil Harrison who is the corporate vice president of interactive entertainment business.

He said this after being appointed: “This is a historic time in our industry and I’m excited, and honoured, to be joining Lionhead and Microsoft Studios.

“Our vision is focused on building innovative gaming services and AAA experiences at Lionhead, and the rest of Microsoft Studios, which take advantage of Microsoft’s incredible hardware and software platforms. Personally, I can’t wait to get started.”

We don’t know what Lionhead is working on right now but a next gen game from them for the Xbox 720 could be revealed at E3.
