John Needham becomes studio head

It's been confirmed that the team behind Fable III and Fable: The JourneyLionhead Studios, has a new studio head; Microsoft has appointed John Needham (no, not the biologist) to lead the Lionhead team "effective immediately."

This Needham fellow has had quite a few roles within the gaming industry thus far, including being CEO of Gazillion and Cryptic, a member of the GameStop Digital Advisory Council, and CFO at Sony Online Entertainment to name a few.

“This is a historic time in our industry and I’m excited, and honoured, to be joining Lionhead and Microsoft Studios,” said Needham. “Our vision is focused on building innovative gaming services and triple-A experiences at Lionhead, and the rest of Microsoft Studios, which take advantage of Microsoft’s incredible hardware and software platforms.”
