UPDATE: Lionhead job posting mentions Fable Legends and unannounced project

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.”
