Forza Horizon Developers Reanimate Fable
17 January, 2018
News

Microsoft is trying to bring back one of its biggest franchises, working with the guys from Playground.

If you were following the news lately, it comes as no surprise that Playground Games is rapidly expanding. The company recently opened a new office in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. And today we kind of learned what these 200 people will be working on (thx Eurogamer).

There’s a new big-budget Fable game in the works.

Fable franchise owner Microsoft has tasked UK developer Playground, which makes the Forza Horizon racing games for Xbox and PC, with creating this new Fable, sources close to the project have told Eurogamer.

They say it’s going to be more of a classical experience with a solid fantasy story and a character-focussed open-world action RPG gameplay. Plus it’s going to be one expensive game, so at least the visuals will be great.

Two years ago Microsoft closed British company Lionhead, which developed the series. Eurogamer believes that Horizon Zero Dawn is the main reason for the resurrection of this franchise. Sony had a tremendous success with this game and now Microsoft wants to do the same.
