Peter Molyneux, one of the true pioneers and innovators in the PC game industry, will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award during the 2011 Game Developers Choice Awards ceremony. The event will be held on March 2 as part of the 2011 Game Developers Conference.
The UK native Molyneux co-founded Bullfrog Productions in 1987 where he helped to create a number of classic PC games including Populus, Syndicate, Dungeon Keeper and many other titles. He left Bullfrog and founded Lionhead Studios in 1997 which made the Black and White titles and The Movies for the PC. While he has moved away from the PC platform in favor of the Xbox and Xbox 360 with the Fable RPG series, Molyneux will return to the PC platform in 2011 with the planned release of a PC version of Fable 3.
