Microsoft has a large number of first party games in development across its bevy of studios right now (and that’s before the Activision Blizzard acquisition has even been finalized), and a number of these are going to bring back fan-favourite franchises that have been dormant for years. One of these is a reboot of Fable in development at Playground Games, and while official details on the game remain scant even now, we do get some interesting development updates every once in a while.

Recently, for instance, Toby Haynes – who was until recently the lead character artist at Rare – took to Twitter and announced that he’s joined Playground Games, and will serve as Character Lead on the upcoming Fable. At Rare, Hynes worked on Sea of Thieves, as well as the in-development Everwild. Before joining Rare in 2020, Hynes was at SIE London Studio for several years, where he worked on PSVR title Blood and Truth.

Fable has apparently been in the works for quite some time, but it’s going to be a while longer before it finally launches. Leaks have claimed that the game won’t release until 2023– whether that means we won’t be hearing much about it this year remains to be seen.
