The lights are on
The poorly received Kinect exclusive Fable: The Journey may not be the only Albion-based fantasy game Peter Molyneux's Lionhead Studios is conjuring up in its England headquarters.
Many fans were turned off by the E3 debut of the on-rails looking Fable spin-off The Journey – even series creator Peter Molyneux seemed underwhelmed when presenting the game for the first time on stage. Perhaps his enthusiasm is reserved for another project. In the latest issue of OXM, the publication speculates that Lionhead is also chipping away at a proper Fable sequel, due out in 2013.
The rumor should come as no surprise considering Microsoft's dwindling collection of reliable first-party franchises. Once you get past Halo, Gears of War, Forza, and Fable, there isn't much left outside of the strong Xbox Live Arcade exclusives.
Previous entries in the Fable series have advanced the history of Albion from the dark ages to the industrial revolution. Where do you think the next fantasy action role-playing game will take us?

*Whew* Well that's good to hear. With all the Journey nonsense, I was becoming worried.
I dunno where it will take us...but id *** well better be longer and have a hell of a lot more content than the last one. Fable 3 was fun as hell for the whole 4 hours it took me to beat it.
They need to just stop with Fable and make something new at this point.
To be honest fable isn't doing it for me anymore.
Let's go back- Renassiance. It worked for Assassin's Creed.
As long as IT DOESN'T have Kinect support then I'm sold, I was very disappointed when I saw this at E3, IMO I think all Fable games should only be played with a controller.
Nice, but they need to make a longer story. Also characters that feels more apealing. Though LionHead is a great developer studio.
