Former Lionhead Studios team is now working on Fable Fortune

Lionhead Studios was a video game developer led by Peter Molyneux which was acquired by Microsoft Studios back in April 2016. Unfortunately, while the studio was closed in April 2016, Flaming Fowl Studios has been brought to life thanks to Mike West, Marcus Lynn and Craig Oman, former Lionhead Studios developers.

Microsoft gave Flaming Fowl the rights to use the Fable IP after refusing to sell it to potential Lionhead Studio buyers. However, even if Microsoft gave the studio the rights to use the Fable IP in the game, the Flaming Fowl studio will run a campaign asking for at least £250,000 in order to finish the game.

Once the campaign finishes, the developers will prepare the game for a closed beta. According to reports, the game will reach the open beta phase sometime in October 2016 when it will be released for Xbox One and Windows PC. If all goes as planned, we should see Fable Fortune released in 2017.

It’s nice to know that Fable Fortune was originally Mike West’s idea eight years ago when he wanted to make it a part of Fable 2. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, as the development of the game started in 2014. Now, it’ll be something he can see come to fruition. Exciting stuff.

Fable Fortune is a card game which looks similar to other popular card games such as Blizzards’s Hearthstone. Below you can see a two players duking it out:

As you can see, the user interface is pretty awesome and we find it even better than Hearthstone’s. As you’ve already seen, the game has a PvP system, but at the same time will come with mid-match quests where you will be able to pick a good or evil choice.
