The oft-delayed free to play title is no more.
Lionhead Studios’ free to play co-op action RPG Fable Legends has been cancelled after frequent delays. Microsoft has also announced that the developer was shut down and the decision to cancel the game after “much consideration”. Along with Lionhead, it seems that Press Play, developer of Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, has also been closed down.
Fable Legends was supposed to release this year for Windows 10 and Xbox One but it wasn’t meant to be. Microsoft stated that, ““I speak for all of Xbox when I say that despite this news, we remain committed to the development communities in the UK and Europe, and Xbox will continue to support new IP and originality in the games we offer on our platforms, whether they’re AAA blockbusters like Quantum Break from Remedy, adventurous new IPs like Sea of Thieves from Rare, or unique new creations from independent developers like Moon Studios with Ori.
“We have nothing but heart-felt thanks for the members of Lionhead and Press Play for their contributions to Xbox and gaming. We are committed to working closely with those affected by today’s news to find them new opportunities at Xbox, or partnering with the broader development community to help place them in jobs elsewhere in the games industry should they desire.”
