The latest myth has been refuted by GamesIndustry

The new Fable rumors were debunked yesterday by GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring.

A thread popped up on the ever-credible 4-Chan boards yesterday, claiming that development on the next Fable has restarted internally as the latest game design was said to be deemed unplayable by the team. As such, the team has reportedly begun work on a remake of the game in the Unreal Engine while abandoning the Forzatech version of the game. Interestingly, the post also mentioned that although development has now restarted, the new target window for the game is Q4 2024. The rumor quickly gained traction, and although the source is highly questionable, Windows’ Jez Corden Central chimed in by saying that it wouldn’t be surprised if the rumor is true.

We already figured that releasing a game like Fable in less than two years after a development restart was, well, fairly quick, but Game Industry Chief Christopher Dring has now also said that these “rumours” simply aren’t legit. On Twitter, Dring simply books: “this is not true”. No further details have been shared by Dring.

The new Fable for the Xbox series and PC has been officially announced in 2020. Using the ForzaTech engine, the title is in development at developer Forza Horizon Playground Games. Unfortunately, since the game’s reveal over two years ago, we haven’t seen much of a reboot. Recent rumors claim that development on the title is slow due to Microsoft’s insistence on using in-house engines. On the other hand, Microsoft’s Matt Booty recently said that the progress on the new Fable is really encouraging.

“There are things I wish I could share and show because some of the things I’ve seen are very encouraging,” she said. The head of Xbox Game Studios said in an interview in November of 2022“There is danger sometimes, you don’t want it [have] Team RPG goes racing game or vice versa. You don’t want a team shooter to make a building block game for kids. You can get in trouble there. But [Playground has] A great technology base, they have a passion for intellectual property, and they just have a clear commitment to craftsmanship and quality.”
