Home » Windows 10 and Xbox One Fable Legends still on the horizon?

Who remembers Fable Legends? You know, the game that not too long ago was cancelled by Microsoft? The same one whose development house, Lionhead Studios, was thrown out the door and into the dark abyss? Well, the game was in development for a number of years as a free-to-play title that should have been released on the Xbox One and Windows 10 this year but as we all know, it never materialized. However, things could change according to the latest round of rumors.

Apparently, remnants of Lionhead Studios would love to continue work on Fable Legends as an independent studio. If it happens, folks who’ve experienced the game will be overjoyed, with Microsoft ultimately benefitting because the company would have another exclusive under its belt and a potential studio to work with in the future.

“We aren’t sharing additional details beyond that we have ceased development on Fable Legends, and are in discussions with employees at Lionhead about our proposed closure of the studio as well,” said a Microsoft spokesperson who chatted with MCV.

While it is great to learn that Fable Legends could be on the verge of rising up from the ashes of cancellation, we have to wonder if this is even a good idea. The game failed to grab the minds and hearts of critics and from what we have seen of the gameplay, Fable Legends doesn’t come off as a hit title.

It is easy to see why Microsoft lost faith in this game: it lacks that WOW factor. However, there is the chance for a new development team to breathe life into this franchise and help its prospects in a volatile free-to-play world.
