Lionhead made Fable 3 and that was crap. 2 was worse than 1 and dtwafily it just got worse.
Playground Games, if they are developing it, have proven their talents generally by consistently making the best racers this gen. Who knows, those talents may lend themselves well to a new title.
“I cherish the Fable franchise and i worry about this game. ”
Don’t worry so much about it. People always ask for 343 and the like to take risks beyond the usual franchises. Now Playground is doing something different.
