Its not over yet
It has been announced that a new game set in the Fable universe is currently in development by Flaming Fowl Studios, an indie team made up by former Lionhead Studios developers. They've launched a crowdfunding campaign today.
The project, entitled Fable Fortune, is a collectible card game which will feature role-playing quests during which the player - in classic Fable style - will make choices that can turn their protagonist into a celebrated hero or a reviled villain. Online co-op is expected to be included, alongside the ability to level up cards. Flaming Fowl are also said to be considering adding a campaign and further PvP modes in the future.
Originally intended to be included as a part of Fable 2, the game has allegedly been in the works since 2014 before becoming its own standalone project. Lionhead Studios was closed in April 2016 but Flaming Fowl were successful in their bid to license the intellectual property and bring the project back to life.
The Kickstarter campaign to support the game is scheduled to launch today, with a goal set at £250,000 to fund release on Xbox One and PC. A closed beta is expected to become available after the funding period ends, with an open beta scheduled for the end of 2016.
