Xbox Apologises After Getting Fans' Hopes Up With 'Special' Fable Tease

If you were browsing social media yesterday afternoon / evening, you might have seen that Xbox Game Studios Publishing on Twitter posted a tease for "something special" this week, with a suggestion it could be related to Fable.

Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case, as the brand has returned to Twitter to apologise for the confusion and confirm that it has no big game news planned for today, nor does it have anything to do with the new Fable reboot.

Here's what happened:

The original tweets have now been deleted, so it looks they were ultimately just a bit of poor judgement.

We'll be keeping an eye on Xbox Game Studios Publishing to see what the "something special" is regardless, but considering it's not said to be "big game news", it's probably best to keep expectations low.
