During July’s Xbox Games Showcase, Microsoft announced a new Fable game for the Xbox Series X. Few details were shared about the game except that it’s currently in development at Playground Games.
Check out the announcement trailer below:
As you can see, the trailer doesn’t really give much away. We follow a fairy as they fly around a magical land until they’re suddenly eaten by a fly, as the narrator teases that not all stories have happy endings, although “yours has yet to be written.” The final shot of the trailer is of a city marked by a giant castle waiting on the horizon.

“A new beginning for the legendary franchise. Explore a land of fantastical creatures and wondrous places,” reads the game’s official description on Xbox Wire, suggesting that this game will be a reboot fo the fantasy RPG franchise instead of a continuation. This will be the first mainline Fable game since 2010’s Fable 3, which capped a trilogy from series creator Peter Molyneux and Lionhead Studios. The studio was shuttered after Xbox Game Studios decided to cancel Fable Legends, a multiplayer take on the series, in 2016.
