Fable 2 Dev Team: "We Are Not Cancelled"

Responding to the rumor that Lionhead's Fable 2 might be the "big Microsoft first party title" that is getting cancelled, two Lionhead dev team members have separately posted in the official community.

The Bag, a Lionhead dev team member and forum moderator: "No, we are not canceled."

Sam, another dev team member, added: "It's not Fable 2, I can tell you that much."

Alan Wake: "Microsoft is just the publisher and does not own our IP. so Microsoft can't exactly 'cancel' us. Technically, it's not a Microsoft 'first party' title. If they can, we'll just go to another publisher."

Fable 2: "No, we are not cancelled."

So, now there are two likely candidates left... Banjo Kazooie 3 and Too Human.

caz i thing they were workin in another unrevaled title.BUT the bodcast said a gamethat people really excited about =TOOOOOO HUMAN

Banjo Kazooie 3 because I conjecture Rare has pulled dev members from that project and transferred them over to working on the rumored Perfect Dark 2. Microsoft is not getting another Halo FPS in the next two to three years, and they desperately needs a huge FPS to fill in the void. So the next FPS champion for Xbox will have to be Perfect Dark 2. Microsoft wants Rare to put in 110% effort into Perfect Dark 2 and make it a big hit. (And I think if Rare fails to deliver again with Perfect Dark 2, it's likely Microsoft will shut them down.)

Too Human because the project has turned into a disaster: the project has gone overbudget and dragged on for too long, and Silicon Knights (the developer) is suing another Microsoft's third-party developer Epic. It's getting out of control and unmanageable. So Microsoft has likely decided to put an end to the fiasco (and never to work with Silicon Knights again.)

I was thinking Banjo Kazooie 3, or Fable 2 also. Im not sure if either is a First Party Title though. The only First party games I know that Microsoft owns is the Halo games and Bungie is on there way out. Where can I find a list of First Party Games for the Xbox 360.

Not Too Human. That game is planned as a trilogy and the first part seems about done. As I said before, most things lean towards it being Banjo Threeie.

its not too human Ms doesnt own the IP and SK arent first party. also they just had a big media event a couple weeks ago, and the press came away very impressed. so why would they cancel it after such positive feedback?

sanderFVCKINcohen3685d ago

it is not Fable2, because they just finished there diary#3...if you had a 360 you would know that, and by that, it shows they are still strongly in developeing Fable2. Nor is it Alan Wake, you goofs: http://n4g.com/News-82334.a...

It is also not Banjo Kazooie3, because that is just ridiculouse for Rare not to make it...because they have something to prove. The only game that I will see as a first-party developer being canceled under Microsfot Games Studios IS.....drumrolllsss.....HALO WARS. Thats RIGHT...maybe its for financial reasons, or they need more workers on another certain game...like Fable2 or Peter Molyneux's other project known as the "Dimitri Project"(which is B.C., not canceled, just suspended).

might aswell be because this franchise doesn't appel to a large demographic

It will sell if its a good game thats how the 360 fanbase works. What do you know you're just a Sony fanboy.

jcgamer3685d ago

Are u kidding? Fable sold 3 million copies...so go make a sandwich or something...this is close to the top of my list of anticipated games next year...I seriously don't understand your motivation...

Wii60_FTW3684d ago

u just got f*cking owned. now go play Lair or Lesbian Sword.

gamesR4fun3685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

its epic m8 the first one was one of my fav computer games of all times.
its only flaw was that it was too short and linear Hopefully this one will be longer and more open. That and they better do has good of a job with the pc port has they did the first time none of that windows live crap or vista bs...

tomfoolery3685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

out the door with the Rare Banjo Kadookie game!
If it has to be any of em.
Rare has delivered average stuff for MS to date,so I think and hope.............yeah,let it be Banjo.
Viva was pretty damn cool though.

iceice1233685d ago

I believe they have the original team making it, it has/had a chance to be great. Too human however looks generic.

The Dark Knight3685d ago
