Where is Peter Molyneux?


Recommended Posts

His last listed gig on linkedin is 22Cans which was still a going concern in Feb 2021.





Peter Molyneux's 22Cans studio has suffered a round of layoffs.

As first reported by GamesIndustry.biz, the Guildford studio made an undisclosed number of staff redundant recently.

In a statement issued to Eurogamer, 22cans insisted development continues at the studio despite the layoffs.

"Unfortunately, due to a number of factors including projects reaching a certain stage in their development, we can confirm that a number of roles at 22cans have been made redundant," 22cans said.

"Development at the studio is continuing however."

Everyone is saying Peter Molyneux this, and Peter Molyneux that.


But no one is saying Will Wright this, and Archer Maclean that!

I sometimes say Geoff Crammond this & that. And I know what Andrew Braybrook is doing because he’s on twitter a lot (and thanked me for sort of helping him with a coding problem :o)

I remember about 20 years ago when we were discussing Peter Molyneux on the Edge forums and how a lot of posters hailed him as the western Miyamoto.

I suspect I was one of them as I was a fan of a lot of his projects, like Populous, Magic Carpet, Syndicate, Dungeon Keeper, The Movies, Fable and Black & White. 


In his early carreer I think he was a brilliant designer with a lot of love for video games but I suspect the business side of it all ruined him, turning him into lying bastard.
