Fans of the Fable video game series have been expecting a new game for a while now. The games have been progressively becoming less and less loved over the years, capped off by the latest entry, Fable: The Journey, a motion-controlled Kinect title that failed pretty spectacularly. But credit is due to fans of the series, who, for the most part, have remained excited about future games despite the growing list of negatives associated with the franchise, holding on to that hope that the next game could be the game to restore the franchise to its original glory.
This tiny sliver of hope grew a bit when Lionhead Studios head Peter Molyneaux—who became infamous for spitting out exciting used car salesman statements about a game that ultimately failed to deliver—departed the company for a new venture. Now Lionhead is teasing fans with a video that appears to announce either an HD re-release of the classic original Fable (including The Lost Chapters, it’s assumed) and/or Fable IV, or perhaps a remake of the original. Check out the video below and share your thoughts!
As you can see, the teaser touches on the swarms of tweets they’ve received from fans about re-releasing in HD or remaking the original Fable, and then showing the villain from the original game, none other than Jack of Blades.
Jack says he’s back, but does that mean the original is simply being re-released in HD, fully remade, or that Jack could be returning for Fable IV? These are the questions!
Personally, the best case scenario would be an HD re-release of the original game with The Lost Chapters (which is the only way to play that game), and then the announcement of Fable IV, with or without Jack of Blades so long as it’s made a lot closer to the way the original was.
