UPDATE: Lionhead job posting mentions Fable Legends and unannounced project

Wednesday, 15th January 2014 10:31 GMT By Dave Cook

Fable Legends developer Lionhead Studios may be making its first Xbox One title right now, but it seems to be on a recruitment drive for something new. Normally we’d assume the project to be Legends, but it’s been mentioned alongside an unannounced title. Mysterious.

UPDATE: The update comes from animator Franck Laurin’s LinkedIn profile, as spotted by OXM.

Under his work history section, Laurin states he has worked as senior animator on “Fable Legends and Un-announced project,” with duties including, “animation, senior animator, involved in key-frame animation, for in-game animation.”


ORIGINAL STORY: OXM muses that Lionhead wouldn’t be so secretive about Fable Legends, seeing as it’s already announced. It begs the question then; could this be something else. Why the secrecy?

This position is listed as ‘Technical Director (New Game)’ and doesn’t mention Fable Legends. The game in question has been called a, “cutting edge new title,” and a, “AAA First Party production.”

Days later, Lionhead posted another job advert for a Senior Services Engineer. It makes no mention of project names or the Fable brand, but does mention an, “exciting and ambitious new title.”

What do you think? Is this Fable Legends or a proper Fable 4? Let us know what you think below.

    i don’t know what they’ve done other than fable for years now. would love to see something else from them, if only to showcase that they aren’t just a one franchise studio.
    with peter “over-promise and under-deliver” molyneux gone, hopefully somebody around there will start doing ANYTHING new…. and for shit’s sake, don’t hail this new game as the second coming of christ. just make a good game, that is literally all that matters with these microsoft owned studios. it needs to be fun and relatively bug free. is that too much to ask?

    could they buy the license to KoA: Reckoning? do that franchise justice? not that it’s new, but that would at least be near their field of expertise, when it comes to genres

    I’d like a true Fable 4 more than the Fable Legends, so I’d love it if thats the case. However, it’s been awhile since Lionhead has done anything new, and it would be great to see another IP from them.
