"I've decided to leave Lionhead. This was a really tough decision, as I've had such an amazing time here," Timmins wrote. "Lionhead has been such an integral part of my life, more than 1/3rd of it infact! Which is why it's a good time for change."
Timmins began his career at the studio working on the original Fable, working as a tester before eventually climbing through the ranks to a lead designer position. He has yet to announce his future plans.
Fable Anniversary received a 5 out of 10 review when it launched earlier this year. "If you could wade through the sometimes crippling issues present in Fable Anniversary, there's so much here worth exploring. But that's the thing," it reads. "Lionhead themselves pushed forward into this territory much more successfully with Fable 2 and even Fable 3. This leaves Fable Anniversary a curiosity at best — and an infuriating disservice to the series' legacy at worst."
