Xbox Head Doesn’t Rule Out New ‘Fable’ Game
The Movie God   |  

Fable Anniversary Cover

A few years back we were surprised to find out that a prequel to developer Lionhead Studios’ Fable franchise was in the works titled Fable Legends, and that it would be a co-op game instead of the single-player RPG faithful fans of the series originally fell in love with. To make matters worse, it was made clear that the Fable IV everyone wanted and had been waiting for, at that time, for three years wasn’t being worked on at all. Said fans were confused, but many tried to remain open-minded.

Then came another surprise. A little over a year ago, when Fable Legends seemed close to a release and was even being played in a closed beta, the game was canceled and Lionhead closed.

It’s now been nearly seven years since Fable III was released, and while the current state of the Fable franchise is quite depressing, it seemed unlikely such a popular franchise it would stay dead forever. Unfortunately I can’t report today that the series is being revived, but a comment from the head of Xbox recently did not rule out the possibility.

Kickstarter Spotlight: A Different Free To Play ‘Fable’ Game
The Movie God   |  

Fable Fortune Kickstarter

A few months back now the gaming world was shocked by the news that Microsoft had decided to close down the game studio behind the beloved Fable franchise, Lionhead Studios, and cancel the latest game in the series, Fable Legends.

But, as it turns out, Legends was not the only project that was being worked on by Lionhead. A much smaller unannounced game titled Fable Fortune was also being developed. But instead of just tossing it in the garbage, as appears to be the fate of Legends, Microsoft granted permission to those who were developing it to continue working on it under their own new studio, Flaming Fowl Studios. To gather the funds for what could be the last Fable game we see in a long time, they’re looking to fans on Kickstarter. Continue below for more info and to see their pitch video, as well as some gameplay videos.

‘Fable Legends’ Open Beta Pushed Back To Spring 2016

It’s already been a couple of years now—believe it or not—since we first found out that Lionhead Studios, developer of the hit Fable video game series, was focusing all of their efforts on a co-op prequel titled Fable Legends that we eventually would find out is a four-vs-one free-to-play game instead of the expected Fable IV.

The game is still well on its way, and has been in a closed beta for a while now, collecting valuable feedback from those invited to play to use in polishing what will become the final product. An open beta of the game where any and all who wanted to test it out could do just that has been in the plans as well, but today comes word that anyone waiting for that opportunity will have to wait a little bit longer as the open beta has been pushed back to spring of 2016. You can read the announcement from Lionhead and see a video talking about their decision below.

Lionhead Announces Prequel ‘Fable Legends’; Says ‘Fable 4’ Not In Development

Fable Legends Image

First came Fable: The Journey. Then came that mysterious cinematic teaser trailer. Now comes a brand new game in the Fable universe titled Fable Legends. None of these became what fans really wanted one of them to become, and that is of course Fable IV. The Journey ended up being a separate disappointing Kinect title. The mysterious trailer was for the HD anniversary re-release of the original Fable with The Lost Chapters (which, to be perfectly fair, is very much exciting in its own right).

Fable Legends is…well, something else. It sounds like it’s somewhere in between Dragon Age and The Elder Scrolls Online. Continue below to find out what we do know so far, and to see the game’s first trailer.
