Fable Legends

Lionhead Studios boss John Needham says the upcoming Xbox One title, Fable Legends, will be more of a service than a game, and that the development team will keep adding major content to it for a long time so that the game becomes a “platform” for all future Fable titles for at least the next five to ten years.

“I think the real magic in the industry now is taking great traditional gameplay and IP, and this new connected world, and mashing them together,” Needham said while speaking to Edge. “I am the person pivoting Lionhead into a games-as-service studio. Legends is quite different from previous Fable games.”

“We can do other styles of Fable games, and keep them within Fable Legends,” he continued. “My plan is that Legends is essentially a platform for almost everything Fable going forward. It’s a long-range plan, of five to ten years, where we’re going to build and keep building onto Fable Legends. That’s the nature of games as a service–you keep adding systems and features and content.”

Fable Legends has been announced as a major upcoming Xbox One title for some time now, but no specific release date has been officially announced.
