xbox fable

Fable has been deep in development by Forza Horizon dev Playground Games for some time now, and it seems Xbox has decided to draft in some extra help. According to a new report from Bloomberg, Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal is assisting on Fable's development.

Reporter Jason Schreier then followed up on Twitter, adding a bit more context to proceedings. Schreier says that while the Montreal-based Onoma studio is closing down within Embracer Group, Eidos is intact and has started work on a new IP and a new Deus Ex title, alongside its partnership with Playground Games.

We've seen very little on Fable since the game's announcement way back in 2020. In fact, we've not seen any real gameplay on Playground's reboot thus far, but we're hopeful that this news may move things on a little quicker.

Xbox seems to be working quite closely with Embracer's new Western studios, then. Another of the Swedish company's recently acquired teams, Crystal Dynamics, is helping The Initiative bring Perfect Dark to life at Xbox.
