Fable is back!

Microsoft has made the startling announcement that their fantasy franchise Fable is making a grand return. Revealed during the Xbox Games Showcase, the new Fable game will be developed by Forza Horizon developer Playground Games. 

Watch the trailer below:

Clearly, Playground’s work on Fable is not too far along. All we got from the game was a short cinematic trailer showing off fantastical visuals in a magical world. The trailer follows a joyful fairy flying about in a jungle-like environment, before being snatched out of the air and eaten by a frog. Oof. 

Based on the trailer alone, it looks like Fable won’t be taking itself too seriously. The last game in the franchise was Fable: The Journey, released back in 2012. Playground Games’ Fable will launch on Xbox Series X and Windows PC at an unspecified date.
