The Fable rumour mill has been spinning for years at this point, and there’s plenty of information to dig in to. Earlier this week, Microsoft downplayed the significance of a placeholder Fable Twitter account, despite it seemingly having been registered in March of this year by a user with a Microsoft email address.Back in November 2017, we reported that Playground Games was hiring talent for a new game, listed as an “open world action-RPG.” In fact, the developer opened an entirely new studio earlier that year to create Project 2, a game that will not feature any racing, distancing it from the Forza series the developer is known for.
Then, in 2018, Playground Games Creative Director Ralph Fulton told Daily Star Online that the Xbox One X will be the “lead platform” for the studio’s next game, just days after a Eurogamer report surfaced, suggesting that a new Fable game was in development at Playground. If you’re interested in what Fable creator Peter Molyneux is looking for in a new entry from the franchise, check out our interview from early 2018.
