Lionhead Studios is now an online-focused developer, according to head of studio John Needham.
Needham, who joined the studio earlier this year from Star Trek Online and City of Heroes developer Cryptic Studios, said "every game" in future will have "connected" elements.
"Our vision is to connect players with fantastic games, so every game we do from hear on out will have great connected online layers," he told Digital Spy at gamescom.
"We're online game guys, that's the studio. We love online games, we love interaction with real people, and we want to bring that magic to Fable."
Discussing the origin of Fable Legends, Needham said he wanted to extend the franchise's trademark interaction with characters and NPCs to real people.
"The thing we thought a lot about was [when making Fable Legends], part of what makes Fable special is the interaction with the characters and the NPCs," he said.
