Former Lionhead Employee Signs On With The New Fable Dev Playground

The next Fable game is one of the most mysterious projects within Xbox Game Studios right now. So far there's been a single teaser trailer, but apart from that, nothing else is really known about this anticipated release.

That's what makes any news about it that much more exciting and with this in mind, it's been discovered Amie Loake - a former producer at Sumo Digital and ex-Lionhead assistant producer on the cancelled co-op game Fable Legends - has signed on with Playground Games (also known for the Forza Horizon series).

In a message over on Twitter, the new Playground employee revealed she would be joining the new Fable team as a senior producer.

"I'm very happy to announce that next month I will be joining @WeArePlayground on the #Fable team as a Senior Producer! I'm so excited to be part of bringing this franchise, which is so close to my heart, to the new generation. I hope we can make my fellow Lions proud"

It's interesting to see more Lionhead employees joining Playground - especially after last year's Xbox documentary series revealed how Microsoft made some big missteps with Fable developer.

The new Fable has reportedly been in development for at least four years now, and there are rumours about it being released in 2023.
