I would too after they announced "Fable: The Journey" or whatever it's called.
i was in the idea that it was your type of game
Well it combines two things I don't like, Fable and the Kinect. So no.
He needed to start a new company to finish working on his Kinect-powered pedo simulator.
Seriously though, I believe he felt somewhat drained and needed a new, fresh start. It was the same with Bullfrog - they released alot of good games and then came a period of stagnation. Lionhead hasn't released a "truly amazing game" since Black and White and Fable - everything else was just re-hashed ideas. I fear that the creativity of Peter may have simply ran out... alternatively, he needs a "push forward".
When you have IP's that sell great such as Fable, you don't feel the "need" to think creatively anymore - you just release sequels. Maybe Peter wanted to leave all those trademarks behind him and start something completely new.
He's been in the industry for years and he took part in making games that were fantastic and games that were apalling, so... we can expect just about anything from him. He's one of those authors who are visionaries - they come up with glorious ideas that meet either universal approval or... become universally hated.
I think he will do fine, might find it a bit harder though without Microsofts cash backing him.
Good luck to him and his new studio.
For anyone interested, that's code for 'Microsoft are fucking up my creativity and giving us pointless constraints, I want to make games that are good, not games that appeal to a mass market.'

Looking forward to whatever 22 cans comes up with. He's got the name + talent, it might work.
A fresh start would imply that he has at any point in his career, made a good game. He gets his fresh start when he does, not to mention doesn't completely try to piss off the entire gaming industry with his asshattery. Never once liked the guy or his games, nothing changes about my opinion of him. Black and White 2 was a colossal let down and Fable has been nothing more then overhyped mediocrity.
Unfortunately he is right though, the industry is so stagnant right now and games as a whole are lacking a lot of innovation and unique factors that make them great creative titles. What sells on a world wide scale that appeals to everyone? Nothing. Shooters sell to North Americans and Europeans, RPG's (for the most part) are bigger in Japan,. And the thing is that no developers are really rethinking what it means to play a game and how the experience can be improved to be more involving and thought invoking.
I guess the journey the title is referring to is Molynuex's new search for a job.
Magic Carpet, Populus, Dungeon Keeper 1-2, Syndicate, Black and White - all games widely accepted as masterpieces in their specific genres. Everyone's a critic, I see.
Well now that he is gone, they don't have to rush their games and deal with him hyping them up. Now they might be able to start and finish a game with all the features advertised.
Black and White 1 wasn't. But as for Fable, eehhhh... it was pretty when it came out, but i guess that's where the uniqueness ends.
