A new announcement regarding the future of the beloved Fable franchise is rumoured to be coming later today (July 23). A couple of industry insiders have teased the likelihood of a Fable 4 announcement and/or trailer, which has been linked to today’s Xbox Series X event.
Video games data analyst and known source of leaks, Daniel Ahmad, recently took to Twitter to discuss the Series X event, making interesting use of the word “fabled.”
He tweeted: “Xbox will hold its Games Showcase tomorrow to show off the latest titles coming to the platform. I think it’ll be a good show overall if you’re a fan of Xbox Game Studios. No matter if you’re an avowed Xbox fan or a fabled Xbox fan, it’ll be good.”
Though that definitely might be a reach, another comment from industry insider Klobrille on Resetera has also raised suspicion. In a thread about the event, Klobrille said they believe an in-game trailer could happen, but denounced the notion of any gameplay demos.
They said: “Just to get that expectation right, I don’t think anyone should expect a Fable announcement with a gameplay demo like what Halo Infinite will do.
“I guess this will rather be in the Horizon II-trailer-like ballpark, so an in-engine trailer but somewhat indicative of what to expect.”
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard any news of Fable 4 or the Fable franchise as a whole, so at this point, I’ll take what I can get!
Thankfully we don’t have too long to wait for news, as the Xbox Series X showcase will take place in just a few hours. Check out the timezones for the show below, and make sure to tune in on YouTube, Twitch (and basically anywhere that’ll host video).
