Fable Reboot Revealed With a Brief CG Trailer

Fable Reboot Revealed With a Brief CG Trailer

That sure was a tease.

The rumors were true: Fable is back! Today at the Xbox Series X first-party games showcase, Microsoft and Playground Games debuted the revival of the Fable series, just called Fable.

The Fable reveal showed a fancy new CG trailer to close out the Microsoft Xbox Series X games showcase. It was a pretty short teaser to go on, and all we really saw was a cutesy fairy character getting eaten up by a toad. But at least the Fable reboot is real.

The reveal of the Fable revival coming from Forza developer Playground Games shouldn't come as a massive surprise. In early 2018, a report claimed that the developer was hard at work on a Fable reboot, aside from continuing the Forza series, alternating as expected between the Motorsport/Horizon releases.

Microsoft actually shot down rumors of a Fable reboot as recently as last month in June. Two Twitter accounts, seemingly registered to Microsoft-related email addresses, surfaced for both Fable and Perfect Dark. While a new Fable game has been revealed, there's no Perfect Dark revival on the horizon.

Shortly after, the Fable trademark was updated by Microsoft. However this was an "intent to use" update for the trademark, which meant all that Microsoft had to do to keep the trademark alive was acknowledge that they planned to use it at some point in the future.

Right now, there isn't a release date for Playground Games's Fable. We don't know for certain which platforms it'll be launching on either, but an educated guess puts this as coming to PC and Xbox Series X.
