New Fable game rumoured to be an MMO, not Fable 4
The return of Fable has fans of the action RPG series very happy, but one insider is claiming that the new game is a MMO.
After years of rumours and hearsay, Microsoft finally announced that a new Fable game is in development from Forza Horizon studio Playground Games.
However, the only thing we really know about it is that it’s coming to Xbox Series X and PC. No gameplay was featured, no release date was confirmed, and even the title of the game is simply Fable, with no subtitle or additional numeral.
One French journalist, who goes by the name of CronoTK on Twitter, has made the very bold claim that this new entry isn’t an action role-playing game like its predecessors and is, in fact, a massively multiplayer online game.
On Twitter, he shared a list of several of the announcements from the Xbox Games Showcase that he wrote up hours before the showcase aired (he made sure to include a timestamp), with Fable MMO among them.
While some of the games listed could have been easily guessed, like the new Forza Motorsport, him accurately mentioning the likes of Phantasy Star Online 2 and Everwild suggests he did know about the event’s contents ahead of time.
And once the showcase was over, he doubled down on his comment that Fable will be an MMO and not Fable 4.
Not only that but a moderator on the ResetEra forum has said that they have heard talk that the new Fable is an ‘MMO lite’.
Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad followed this up by saying: ‘I wouldn’t read into this too heavily. It’s not an actual 2004 style MMO.’
These two comments suggest that the new game might only have MMO elements or, at least, have little in common with a World Of Warcraft style game.
For the time being, it’s best to take this as simply a rumour and wait for official confirmation from Microsoft. Although every indication so far suggests that its release date is not any time soon, so it may be a while till we learn more.
Fable is in development for Xbox Series X and PC.
