A brand new Fable recreation is reportedly within the pipes


A few weeks again, rumours started spreading that a new Fable recreation was within the works. That appeared odd contemplating Microsoft shut down Lionhead, the studio that made the Fable video games, practically two years in the past. According to Eurogamer, these rumours have been on the cash: new Fable is coming, and it’ll be “a story and character-focussed open-world action RPG” made by UK developer Playground Games.

They’re the chaps that made Forza Horizon, so we are able to all sit up for zooming round Albion in Venom GTs and Camero ZL1s.

Playground not too long ago expanded massively, opening a new studio. Officially, all we knew is that they’re engaged on an “open-world RPG”.

Fable co-creator Simon Cartor revealed “slightly mixed feelings” when he spoke to Eurogamer in regards to the destiny of the sequence:

“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.”

Despite the nearer, some ex-Lionhead folks did handle to salvage their spin-off card recreation Fable Fortune. While the deliberate free-to-play RPG Fable Legends died together with the studio, Fable Fortune survived within the care of a group inside Lionhead that grew to become the studio Flowing Fowl. It’s at present in early entry on Steam.

I’ve to admit, my solely expertise with the sequence is taking part in a number of hours of Fable three on a buddy’s Xbox and packing it in once I obtained too irritated on the expressions system. At the time I discovered it offputtingly goofy, severing any connection I felt to the world or its characters. Should I’ve continued, gang?
