'Fable 4 Studio' Playground Games Is Recruiting For An Open-World Action RPG
Calling all Chicken Chasers, it looks like your favourite franchise is making a well deserved comeback.
Playground Games, rumoured to be in control of the classic Fable series (they even pop up on Twitter when you search Fable), are hiring a bunch of new developers - 177, to be precise.
Playground previously revealed that it's working on a AAA open-world RPG, and seeing as the studio was bought by Microsoft - who showed interest in bringing the the Xbox exclusive back - Fable 4 could be the unannounced project.
The intriguing, yet dangerous, world of Albion was wrapped up with Fable Legends, a cooperative action RPG that never progressed from its BETA stage.
Previous Fable 3 and Fable: The Journey titles received pretty dire reviews, and the franchise begged for something to bring it back it back to life. Unfortunately, despite the BETA being quite fun, Legends wasn't it.
Failure to produce a series revival led to the closure of Lionshead Studios in March, 2016, alongside the inevitable cancellation of Legends.
Fans of Heroes, Demon Doors, and Reaver industries (which has an official website launching in 2020), have waited since 2014's Fable Anniversary to revisit Albion, so let's hope every new character artist, level designer, and animator at Playground Games are set to offer that opportunity.
Here's what Twitter says about the new job listings:
