A recent leak on Mixer suggests that Fable 4 might be in development and the title might be announced at E3 next month. The leak happened when the game Fable 4 appeared on Mixer as a listing. This discovery was made by a Reddit user who was quick to post about it online and shared an image about the name popping up in the list.
It is normal for video games to appear in the ‘Game you’re streaming’ drop down list where it suggests you the name of the games that player types in the text bar. It was during one of these moments when ‘Fable IV’ popped up for the player and it made it online after that. This could mean that someone added the name in Mixer’s director which is why the game showed up in the drop-down menu.
There are two conditions for this to appear in the list. Either someone at Mixer added the name Fable IV by mistake which seems highly unlikely. The second condition is that the name was entered in the Mixer’s database a little early or it might have been a deliberate move to give some hype to the game before an official release.
We would like to go with the second condition which is that it was added deliberately to Mixer just to bring this beloved franchise back in the minds of the players. Fable fans are considering this leak a good sign and are sure that something related to Fable is indeed planned for E3 2019 and this was not a silly mistake by someone who handles the backend of Mixer’s database.
With Lionhead Studios out of the picture, we are not sure which studio could be working on the next Fable game even if a title is under-development at Microsoft Game Studios. The last proper Fable title Fable III was released back in 2010 on Xbox 360. This is if you do not consider the Fable Trilogy released in 2014 containing the first three titles in the franchise and other spin off games.
There is one top secret Fable game under development at this point however which is being worked on by Playground Games, the developer behind Forza Horizon franchise. The title was leaked in January 2018 but during E3 2018, Phil Spencer confirmed that the Fable game rumored in January 2018 is indeed happening, however, no further details are currently known about it at this point.
