Ah, Fable, it has been a long time since we heard that title. A blockbuster exclusive hit on the Xbox system long ago developed by Lionhead Studios and published by Microsoft. Although nowadays they are remembered by the cancellation of Fable Legends and the closing of Lionhead Studios.
Fable Revival on the Works
A report by Eurogamer seems to show the Legend Never Dies as developer Playground Games has been appointed to revive the franchise, albeit the new title isn’t Fable Legends. Those who play on the Xbox console should know this name as they made Xbox’s great selling series, Forza Horizons. You may recall that we published an article in November of last year about Playground Games working on an open world RPG, which was quite shocking. Interesting that this is allegedly the title…
The new title is still very much in the early stages of development as the core team to be working on it is being finalized. Expect to see more of this in several years if the sources are true, as projects often go quiet after initial early leaks.
The new Fable title will be a story driven open world action role-playing game. Perhaps Microsoft is hoping to have yet another great exclusive game to add to their list and to revisit the single player focus games that still can be impactful, if done right. PS4’s exclusive title Horizon: Zero Dawn developed by Guerrilla Games and Nintendo Switch’s exclusive title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are some prime examples of single player games done properly.
