Work is underway on a brand new, big-budget Fable game, Eurogamer can reveal.
Fable developer Lionhead closes its doors for the last time today.
Fable Legends, Lionhead's free-to-play multiplayer-based spin on its fantasy world that sadly never saw release, has come to its end with the closed beta winding down for good.
UPDATE: Fable Legends ends at 3pm on Wednesday, 13th April 2016, Lionhead has said.
Fable Legends developer Lionhead Studios has finally given an update on its MIA free-to-play title, which was previously slated for launch before Christmas.
The Xbox One and Windows 10 game will now launch in open beta at some point during spring 2016.
Earlier this year, Microsoft promoted the title as part of its Greatest Games Line-up campaign, alongside Forza 6, Halo 5, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Last night, Microsoft announced it was expanding its ID@Xbox self-publishing program to Windows 10, where numerous games will feature either cross-buy or cross-play capabilities with Xbox One.
Microsoft's upcoming Windows 10 will let you stream Xbox One games to PC and tablets, the company has announced.
Fable developer Lionhead is pushing its little-known incubation team, which experiments with new game ideas, into the public eye. And as part of that push it has revealed a cancelled game called InkQuest.
The Microsoft-owned Guildford company works mainly on Fable games, but Lionhead Incubation has for about a year now dabbled in new projects.
"Game developers love to create," the developer said in a statement published on the Lionhead website.
Fable Legends developer Lionhead has charged a small team with coming up with the studio's next big new intellectual property.
Fable Legends will be launching its beta this autumn, developer Lionhead announced during Microsoft's E3 press conference today.
The series spin-off pits four players cooperatively against one villain, who's tasked with spawning monsters for the heroes to fight in real-time. The heroes will play from a third-person behind-the-shoulder perspective, while the villain overlooks things from above.
It appears that the four heroes are class-based and specialise in Will, Skill and Strength. In other words, one focuses on magic, another ranged combat, and another melee brawling. Perhaps the other is a jack-of-all-trades?
Lionhead Studios is working on a non-Fable game, it has confirmed to Eurogamer.
Fable Anniversary has been delayed to February 2014, developer Lionhead Studios has announced.
Lionhead's recently-announced multiplayer adventure Fable Legends for Xbox One is the only game in the series currently in-development, the developer has said.
(Well, that and the upcoming Fable 1 remake Anniversary.)
Microsoft neglected to provide a release date for Fable Legends, but Lionhead expects a beta test to be ready next year.
