Newlyweds Listing Confirms Fable III

Microsoft says, 'Uh, what?'

June 29, 2009 - Yes, it seems news can find its way into every section of a newspaper.

As spotted by Kotaku, last week's newlyweds listing in the New York Times not only details the ceremonious occasion between Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Atkins, but it also confirms Fable III's development.

"Mr. Atkins, 34, is the lead game designer for Fable III, a video game series produced by Lionhead Studios in Guildford, England"


Here's what we know: Joshua Atkins does indeed work at Lionhead Studios as per his Linkedin account. It's not clear if this was merely a typo on someone's part or just an honest mistake.
Note to developers: Don't list the games you're development in your wedding announcement no matter how sweet and hilariously fitting it may seem.

This is the response we got from Microsoft on the story:

"We have nothing to announce or comment regarding future Lionhead Studios projects."

We also sent the NY Times a note about a possible typo on their part and we'll update you when we hear back.
