Recently, during an Xbox-focused podcast, a host made some statements about the upcoming relaunch of Fable of Playground Games, claiming that the game is further than many expected and claiming to have heard of development issues. Apparently, the hosts’ comments were disproportionate, and one of the developers working on Fable spoke to make things right.
During the XNC podcast, one of the hosts claimed that she heard that the new Fable game had problems early on because of the Playground using the ForzaTech engine, which did not have the necessary tools to implement certain game mechanisms and systems. The host also claims that Fable’s scope has finally been “reduced”.
After that, Amie Loake, senior producer at Fable, entered Twitter to make it clear that ‘limitation’ is a normal part of the development cycle and that, in the end, every AAA game ends up having a certain reduction in content. Loakes added that adjusting the scope of a project allows teams to focus on a clear vision, and if the project is well managed, then it means that studios can avoid crises and delays.
Playground Games is working on restarting Fable in 2018, but the game was officially announced with a CGI trailer only in 2020. Since then, we haven’t had any official updates about the game, but many anticipate it will be ready. in 2023 or 2024.
KitGuru Says: So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange. Every entertainment product goes through an editing process, and the games are no different. I think the game could go further than I originally thought, especially if it takes a long time to build new development tools.
