One upcoming first-party Xbox title that's got many people excited is the new Fable game by the Forza Horizon developer Playground Games.

There have been some minor development updates over the past few months, but what's the latest? In a special storytime session at this year's PAX, Head of Xbox Game Studios Matt Booty was asked what's the latest on the new Fable title.

As much as he would love to share more with fans, apparently, Playground doesn't want to reveal anything just yet. Here's exactly what he had to say:

"Part of my job is giving air cover to the team, they don't want to show stuff early before it's ready to go, but if there is one game where that is kind of flipped around where every time I see something, and I say "we should show this" it's Fable, because there's a lot of cool stuff...The team has made it very clear that I'm not going to be able to show anything until it's ready.

"Playground, just what I'll say is that the craft and dedication that they brought to Forza Horizon, every bit of that is going to be applied to Fable and they get it...let's be honest, giving Fable to the racing team could be a little bit of a headscratcher, but they have proven that they get it, and I'm excited for when the time comes to be able to show more."

This latest update follows rumours in recent months, raising concerns about the scope of the project. These concerns were also stamped out by the development team - stating how this process was a normal and necessary part of game development. Based on Matt Booty's latest comment as well, it sounds like the new Fable is coming along nicely.
