One of the most anticipated announcements came true on the Xbox Games Showcase and at that presentation it was confirmed that a new Fable is in development and Playground Games will be responsible for bringing the franchise back with this new installment for Xbox Series X. From a series of niche, fans hope it will keep some essentials and luckily the development team has that in mind.

During an interview with The Guardian, Matt Booty, director of Xbox Game Studios, spoke about Fable and the foundation on which Playground Games is building this title. In that sense, Booty pointed out that the first thing that the development team takes into account is that it is a franchise loved by fans and they are faithful to the details and elements that have accompanied it for years, however, they are also aware that it is an opportunity to do new things: « with any type of franchise like that, where it has had existing versions, there is always that balance between what is going to present, what is still maintained and what you want to add that is new. It’s like the challenge of making a new Star Wars movie: There are things that everyone wants you to bring, but then you have a responsibility to take that to new places and I’m confident Playground will have a good vision for that. « 

On the other hand, the head of Xbox Game Studios was confident about what Playground can do to create a fantasy world with the new Fable, especially for what they have achieved in terms of attention to detail in Forza Horizon: « I just look what Playground has done with the Horizon series: that attention to detail, the ability to represent these natural landscapes. They also have a true passion for IP and a unique point of view on what is fundamental to Fable. Everything I have seen as the game progresses he tells me this will be a very high quality release. «
