Fable seems like it should be a launch title for Xbox Series X, but what does series history tell us about the game's development and expectations?
Ever since project ego not coming out Fable has been a disappointment
I think a new Fable is inevitable, but as a launch title, I don't see that happening. The earliest I can see would be at the end of 2021.
I think Horizon Zero Dawn was released at the beginning of 2017 and it was not long after that we heard about the new RPG from Playground and how MS was thinking about making a new Fable based on the success of HZD, so at the beginning of 2021 it will have been 4 years. In other words I don't think you are far off, for a studio to create a new RPG game they have no experience in would probably take 4 to 5 years.
Erm, Yes, Fable 4 is already in development
Did you even read that article. It refers to the title as rumored more than once, AND not once says the game is confirmed. Only that it "has to be" one of the titles in development at MS. So, while it's likely to be in development, we have no concrete evidence whatsoever.
Playground games will most likely be shown this E3
Playground games Just one of the many job postings on their official website :- "Playground Games is looking for an Animation Director to lead a world-class Animation team on an entirely new AAA open world action / RPG project. You will work closely with the Art Director and Cinematics Director to develop and drive the artistic vision for this AAA project and take responsibility for an exceptional team, as well as being a key member of the project leadership group." "Gameplay Designer Playground Games are looking for a Gameplay Designer to join our open-world action RPG team."
a new fable could be a decent game, but I really want new games. the way the humor is put it its decent fun, but hard to take seriously at all and become a system seller.
Playground’s second team is heavily rumored to be making Fable 4, or some sort of Fable reboot (even Eurogamer confirmed this rumor). We’ll might see something at E3.
It's been long enough. I'm usually one to scream about the need for Microsoft to make some new IPs or renew some ancient ones but I would love a new trip back to Albion
I'm kinda worried. I really like fable, but I get this uneasy feeling they gonna screw it all up.
I hope so.
I sure hope so... But MS have proven they can't even make a most wanted AAA game outside of Forza. Here's hoping they can knock a new Fable game out of the park... but we will have to wait and see. I hope its not riddled in mt's, gaas, or multiplayer only. I miss my single player ver. Of this game from back in the day.
