Fable 4 watch: job ads posted for “re-imagining” existing IP
Fable 4 could actually be a thing, following a series of new job adverts from Lionhead Studios. One particular post calls on Unreal Engine experts with experience in “re-imagining existing franchises”.
OXM spotted a job post for Animation Director, and the line about re-imagining existing franchises suggests that Lionhead is looking to give Fable – or indeed another franchise – a fresh lick of paint.
The role is for an “unannounced title” – naturally – and states, “The ideal candidate is someone who has leading industry experience on AAA titles, including large scale RPG, Action Adventure and RTS genres. The role will focus on building and guiding a team, defining and creating pipelines, establish and delivering a high visual bar that anticipates significant industry trends”.
The job adverts follow rumours that Lionhead is currently making a game using Unreal Engine 4. Check out the rumblings here.
