The open world title apparently won’t have a gameplay demo like Halo Infinite.
Later this week, Microsoft will be hosting an Xbox Series X showcase focused on first-party titles from Xbox Game Studios. One such title that’s rumored to have been in development is Fable 4 with Forza Horizon developer Playground Games at the helm. According to insider Klobrille, said announcement won’t be accompanied by a gameplay demo.
“Just to get that expectation right, I don’t think anyone should expect a Fable announcement with a gameplay demo like what Halo Infinite will do,” he said on ResetEra. Instead, the reveal will apparently be akin to Sony’s Horizon: Forbidden West announcement. “I guess this will rather be in the Horizon II-trailer-like ballpark, so an in-engine trailer but somewhat indicative of what to expect.”
Since last year, there have been leaks about the next Fable including details on its world building and combat. It even appeared on Mixer at one point (though nothing was actually shown). Microsoft recently applied to have the trademark renewed, further sparking discussion of a reveal so we’ll have to wait and see what the showcase has to offer.
The Xbox Series X first-party showcase is set for July 23rd at 9 AM PT. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
