Peter Molyneux Discusses Superstar Game Designers
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

The Guardian has published a new interview with legendary game designer Peter Molyneux. This time the talkative designer discussed the reasons why most game designers remain anonymous, as well as the pros and cons of having a well known name behind a project.

"I don't think publishers like there to be people attached to a certain franchise," he says. "I don't think they want Peter Molyneux known for the Fable franchise and they don't particularly want a famous person attached to any franchise because if that famous person leaves, they can take the franchise with them."

Molyneux also thinks the few new names prove a point. For example, CliffyB rose to prominence with the success of Xbox 360 hit Gears of War. The difference is that Epic, its creators, is an independent company. With the decline of the indies, who are being absorbed into larger publishers, there are fewer names around: instead, the talent shines beneath the publisher's bushel.
