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 game since joining Playground Games in November 2017, showing off a "Congratulations" note presented to him by the studio:
This isn't actually the first time we've heard something along these lines, as Playground Games was seen to formally tweet about its "new AAA open-world action RPG" back in November 2017, which obviously turned out to be Fable.
As for when we can expect a release date though? It's anyone's guess for now. Rumours have suggested we might be looking at a 2023 window, so hopefully we'll get a glimpse at some proper gameplay footage next year.
Surprised by this? When do you think Fable will get a release? Give us your thoughts down below.
