A new Fable game is still “miles away,” according to journalist Andrew Robinson. Appearance on VGC’s latest podcastRobinson discussed upcoming Xbox games.
The games he believes Xbox will focus on are Ninja Theory’s Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 and Obsidian’s Avowed.
“I think the closest ones for them are Hellblade and probably Avowed,” Robinson said. “That’s the next big thing for them that they’re talking about. I understand those two are the closest.”
Moving on to other announced titles, Robinson talked about the state of games like Perfect Dark and the aforementioned Fable.
“It’s still pretty amazing that Fable is still miles away,” he said. “Perfect Dark is not close, Everwild is not close. Everything looks so great on paper, and the games just aren’t quite ready yet.”
Robinson also mentioned that the new Fable game has only recently entered full production.
Beyond that, VGC’s Jordan Middler says that based on the conversations he’s had, there are a lot of questions about the direction of the game. Middler says so
“I’m not sure if you made an original Fable-style game now, that would be what people want,” says Middler. “The term ‘Witcher-like’ was a lot for me to wake up to. Which I think makes people angry, like the original Fable.”
Fable was originally announced in 2020, but Microsoft hasn’t received much updates since then. Based on what Middler and Robinson have said, it starts to make sense why.
