Fable fans, rejoice! It's quite possible you haven't seen the last of Fable Legends, if a new report from MCV is anything to go by.
Previously in March, development of the upcoming would-be free-to-play Fable Legends ceased after Microsoft had announced a period of "consultation" for developer Lionhead. It didn't sound good for employees or anyone in the organization, but now there seems as though there could be a light at the end of the tunnel.
According to MCV, it seems as though there are discussions going on right now about possible ways to keep the game from being doomed forever. It seems that some employees may have been given the option to remain working on the project rather than being given a severance package, possibly being granted permission to continue working on the game as independent workers.
Game Informer, when reporting on the story, reached out for comment on the matter, though Microsoft didn't offer clarification beyond the following statement:
“We aren’t sharing additional details beyond that we have ceased development on ‘Fable Legends,’ and are in discussions with employees at Lionhead about our proposed closure of the studio as well."
Perhaps it'll end up happening in the end, and we'll have more Fable to play.
