Last year, Playground Games finally unveiled the next Fable for Xbox Series X/S and PC. And though rumors indicate that it – along with Perfect Dark and Everwild – is a long way off from release, some details have been trickling out over the past few months. The latest comes from a job listing on Microsoft’s Careers website which states that the action RPG will run on ForzaTech.
As per the listing, “ForzaTech is the engine, tools, and pipelines that drive both the Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon series of games. In addition to adding new features like ray tracing to support the next console generation, we are also enriching the toolset to support an open world action RPG – Fable.” Though ray tracing is mentioned, which the next Forza Motorsport is confirmed to support, it doesn’t explicitly indicate that Fable will have it.
Along with providing credence to Turn 10 Studios helping with the game’s development, the mention of “3 AAA titles in development” across two Xbox franchises seems to indicate that Forza Horizon 5 is indeed in development. VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb said that the open world racing title is on track to release this year and more recently confirmed that it’s set in Mexico. As for Fable, it could still be a while before any new details or gameplay footage is revealed so stay tuned in the meantime.
