Microsoft Planning New Fable Game (Report)
Microsoft owns the Fable franchise and it has been a while since people have been asking for a new game in the series. While we have heard nothing from the company itself, there are a couple of rumors and reports that claim that Microsoft is working on a new Fable game and if you think about it, makes sense.
In efforts to ask Microsoft regarding the matter, the company said that it does not comment on rumors so they are not denying the existence of the game either. According to sources, the new Fable game will be an open-world RPG and that there are 200 people working on the game. A lot of money has been put into the development of the game.
As far as the release date goes, do not expect to play the game anytime soon as the game is in early development. According to people that worked at Lionhead, they wanted to make a story-driven, single-player Fable game after Legends but that did not happen. They also mentioned that they were sad that they did not have the chance to make Fable 4.
According to Fable co-creator Simon Carter:
“On the one hand it’s great for the UK games industry and very pleasing that Fable isn’t dead; indeed, it will be lovely to play one as a punter, without coming out in hives. On the other hand it is a little curious to get rid of the team that is uniquely expert in making Fable, and then try and make Fable. Fable is a weird game, and a tough one to deconstruct for a new team. That said, the team in question is very talented, and I’m sure they’ll do a fantastic job.”
It seems that Microsoft has been inspired by Horizon Zero Dawn and is willing to give Fable another shot. We will have to wait and see what this upcoming game turns out to be but for now, this is all that we have to share with you. Stay tuned to SegmentNext for more information.
Playground will be working on the new Fable game and it has done plenty of work on the Forza series. All things considered, this should go pretty well. I have high hopes and it is a highly demanded game so I hope the developers can do it justice.
Let us know what you think about a new Fable game coming out and whether or not this is something that you would be interested in playing.
