Following the news this week that Fable developer Lionhead Studios may be closing up shop, Sony has announced it will hold a job fair Guildford, UK--the city where Lionhead is located.

The PlayStation Jobs UK Twitter account made the announcement. The recruitment event will be held on Monday, March 14, and representatives from all of Sony's European studios will be in attendance. Developers can send a DM to the Twitter account to set up meetings.

Microsoft has not yet outright confirmed that Lionhead will close and is instead saying it is "in discussions" with the employees. This is likely because UK law requires employers to create a consultancy period of at least 30 days. During this, measures to avoid redundancies are to be explored. The period also gives those affected some time to search for new jobs.

While Lionhead's closure is not 100 percent confirmed at this stage, another Microsoft studio-- Denmark-based Press Play Studios (Kalimba, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood)--has been shuttered entirely.

Lionhead, a British studio founded by Peter Molyneux in 1996, has developed acclaimed titles in the Black & White and Fable series. It was acquired by Microsoft in 2006. Molyneux left Microsoft and Lionhead in March 2012.

With Fable Legends canceled and Lionhead appearing to be on the way out, the future of the Fable series is unclear.
