The reasoning behind 'Fable Legends' not being called 'Fable 4'

Many fans of the successful gaming franchise, Fable, were fully expecting the next installment in the series to be named Fable 4, but there was a distinct reason why Lionhead Studios had no interest in calling the game by its next chronological figure.

Today, Fable Legends game director David Eckelberry talked about why this next installment in the Fable franchise is not going to be called Fable 4. (Fable Legends, Xbox One)

Well thats good but as I said in another Fable article I really hope when Fable 4 comes out it will focus on single player and they don't bother wasting their time on connectivity or co-op because the way I see it they have creating two Fable franchises.

Fable Legends can be this evolving online co-op focused game with a lot of focus on connectivty, social aspects and doing quests with your friends while....

Fable 4 could get the dev team to focus more on single player content and to make the biggest world they can with a ton of great single player features without them having to worry about if it fits or works with co-op. Think of all the stuff they could work on rather then getting co-op to work.

Least then you have a franchise that caters to two audiences.

It's what I never understood with Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City and Resident Evil 6. ORC focused on co-op, action elements and online play so why did they force that crap into RE6 to make it even worse then it already was. You could of had your franchise cater to two different audiences.

Well simply put its a reboot. Could be good or it could be totally missing that Fable feeling and magic. Personally Fable has fallen off since the 2nd sequel. Tooo early to judge legends but again I hope they get that magic back regardless of the new direction.

Same reason why Xbox One not being called Xbox Three?

Probably the same reason Assassin's Creed 4 isn't called Assassin's Creed 6, the return of generic combat and enemy AI.
