Lionhead Studios has confirmed it is currently not working on a numbered sequel to the Fable series, and is instead focusing all of its efforts on Fable Legends.
The studio responded to a fan question earlier today asking when Fable 4 would launch. “We're not working on a Fable 4, Fable Legends is our priority and will be for the foreseeable future,” Lionhead Studios responded.
It’s been five years since Fable 3 was released on the Xbox 360 and over two years since Fable Legends was announced. While Fable Legends won’t offer the typical Fable experience as it’ll be a free-to-play game that features a story’s worth of quests available at launch.
We’re sure many of you, just like us, were hoping Lionhead Studios was working on Fable 4 while it was working on Fable Legends. Today’s news means that we probably shouldn’t expect an official sequel of the Fable series for some time considering Fable Legends has yet to launch, and we’re sure the studio has several months of additional content lined up for the game.
