About Fable & Fable 4
The Fable series takes place in a fictional nation, Albion. It is a state that was composed of numerous autonomous city-states having vast areas of countryside or wilderness in between. However, time progresses with each game of the series. The fans of Fable 4 have been waiting for its release date for a very long time now. In Fable II, Albion advances to an era similar to that of the Age of Enlightenment. Furthermore, in Fable III, it unifies under a monarchy and was undergoing the Age of Industry. (similar to the real world 18-19th century Industrial Revolution)

A former Lionhead Lead Engine Programmer, Don Williamson who worked on both the video games Fable I and Fable II, posted on his Twitter account that he’d worked out which studio was currently working on Fable IV also stating that he believed it to be an interesting choice. The tweet was soon deleted, likely on the request of Microsoft. An Xbox Live API leak confirmed that a project, related to the game Fable, codenamed Wisdom was being developed by a UK based studio.
Though the game was not announced, as many fans had hoped for it to happen during Microsoft’s E3 2018 Briefing, the Head of Xbox Phil Spencer announced that Playground games were bringing their own open-world expertise to another project in addition to Forza Horizon 4 and also that more information on this project would come soon in future.
Rumors and More
The latest rumours making the rounds were drawn from a video leaked from an unverified source, allegedly providing us with a brief overview of the setting and structure of Fable 4, if not its release date. However, it has been scrubbed from the internet since then.
It is rumoured that it’ll feature first and third-person perspectives, creating the character in depth. Further, guns are gone, players will be able to their own towns, and multiplayer content has been announced. Lastly, it will feature time travel and interplanetary travel. Also, It is rumored that Albion and Aurora were destroyed by an asteroid willed to strike by the wish of a mad king. Players will be at a point when humanity has managed to reach a medieval-like civilisation again. Most of us cannot wait for the release date of Fable 4 to be announced!
If rumours are true then Fable 4 is already in development. With the potential Fable 4 images out in the world, the rumour mill churning and having no official information, a reboot seems to be the best bet.
