Home » Peter Molyneux still wants to make Fable 4 after Fable Legends failure

If you’ve been a long time Xbox fan,  chances are you’ve played the Fable games. This franchise was one of the best Microsoft had out there until the rise and fall of  Fable Legends.

Many fans, including us, would have rather a Fable 4 instead of what Microsoft and the now defunct Lionhead Studios attempted. Still, all is not lost: The creator of Fable and founder of Lionhead Studios, Peter Molyneux, is interested in Kickstarting Fable 4 should Microsoft give him the go ahead.

Molyneux said he would love to do a Fable 4 after he has finished work on his current project. The plan is to reunite with some of the Lionhead Studios employees to work on the game, but the ball is in Microsoft’s court now:

“When I finish what I’m working on now, if someone comes to me and asks, hey, do you want to do Fable 4, I’d totally be up for it,” Molyneux says in an interview with Eurogamer. “I would get Dene back. I would get Simon back. And I would remake this world. It’s such a rich world and there are so many avenues we didn’t explore. That would be really good fun to do. “And I’d still want the equivalent of another dog.”

The Eurogamer article went on to add that Microsoft wanted to sell Lionhead Studios but at the same time, didn’t want to let go of Fable. This is the reason the studio was not sold because potential buyers also wanted the full rights to Fable.

It is clear if the software giant is interested in doing something with the Fable name, so there might be a chance for Peter Molyneux to get his hands back on the franchise he created. Then again, he did a questionable job with Fable 3, so we’re not fully sold on him returning.

As for Fable Legends, Microsoft sunk over $75 million into its development. That’s rather interesting because the game doesn’t look or play like a $75 million title, so no wonder it was canned.
