Lionhead creative director leaves to form new indie studio


Gary Carr leaves after 12 years

After 12 years at Lionhead Studios, it seems creative director Gary Carr has left the UK studio to take the leap into independent game development.

In a statement made to GameSpot, it was confirmed that Carr, who had been overseeing the creation and curating of a series of new IP prototypes, has now left the studio.

Presumably, Carr’s departure suggests whatever new IP project he was overseeing is now far enough along for him to leave the project. Could this mean we might see a new IP from Lionhead in the coming months? I’m not sure, I just hope his journey into independent development goes more smoothly than Peter Molyneux’s did.
