'Fable' Series Latest News & Updates: Creator Is in Discussions With Microsoft to Make 'Fable IV'
Peter Molyneux , the "Fable" series creator recently said that he wants to make "Fable IV" and has discussed this with the series' publisher, Microsoft. "Fable III" has received a positive critical reception from fans although there were some disappointments about the bugs that were never fixed in a patch.
In an interview with OXM, Molyneux said that he is surprised that "Fable IV" has not been created. "I would love to do "Fable IV" and the studio tried to do it. You'd have to get the original team back together though," he said.
According to GameSpot, Molyneux said that he and his team have discussed this matter with Microsoft and they sometimes upset the latter with their sense of humor. He explained that it's just part of being a typical British studio.
"I think it was the sense of humor. You know the British, slightly politically incorrect sense of humor, especially with "Fable", where we had prostitutes and same-s** marriage," he explained. In 2012, Molyneux left Lionhead for 22 Cans.
Microsoft has been upset with it, which have also ignored other developers. Some "Fable" developers have also expressed their disappointments with Microsoft where the most notable was the unsuccessful fight to have a black woman on the cover of "Fable III". John McCormack, the former art director of Lionhead was the one on talks about the black woman cover and was terribly upset with the outcome.
McCormack also said that Microsoft is one of the reasons why he left Lionhead Studio in 2012 when the latter rejected his proposal for a darker and grittier "Fable IV", reports Eurogamer. The studio officially closed in April this year.
"Fable" is a series of action role-playing video games published by Microsoft for Microsoft Windows, Xbox, OS X, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms. It was developed by Lionhead Studios, which closed earlier this year.
