"So excited for this game"
The teams at Xbox Game Studios and Playground Games are understandably remaining fairly silent on the progress of Fable right now, but thanks to a lead engineer at the latter, we know that it's been in development for at least four years. Tom Gaulton took to Twitter last week to commemorate four years of working on the...
He's "designing and implementing combat"

"I think Playground [Games] will keep it there"
It's no surprise that we haven't heard much about the new Fable in a little while, but speaking as part of IGN's Unlocked 500 podcast last week, Xbox boss Phil Spencer made a very light reference to it while talking about RPGs. In a discussion about Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls and Obsidian's

According to a LinkedIn profile
The new Fable from Playground Games is undoubtedly one of the most highly-anticipated projects in the works from Xbox Game Studios, so we're expecting it to have a fairly big development team.

A long road ahead
The standout reveal of the lot at the Xbox Games Showcase last month was Fable for Xbox Series X and PC. Unfortunately, there was nothing more than a trailer confirming the series' return. If you've been wondering what has been going on with it since then, it seems Playground Games is still seeking additional talent to help out...
