There was that Kinect-driven spin-off, Fable: The Journey, which launched in 2012 to mixed reviews, not to mention the oddball beat ‘em up Fable Heroes that same year. More recently, there was Fable Fortune, a card game devised and Kickstarted by Lionhead alums shortly after the studio was shuttered. If anything, though, repeated reuse of the IP made the prolonged lack of a proper Fable RPG even more obnoxious.

Even so, today’s news won’t come as a huge shock to series faithful: Eurogamer reporter that Microsoft was looking to add a splashy new game to the mix back in early 2018, and even pinned Playground as the developer in charge of the project.
