Fable Stories cancelled while Lionhead Galleries will quickly be closed
Microsoft has introduced it’s cancelled Fable Stories and it is while closing Lionhead Galleries. The organization may also be closing Press Play Galleries and ending the expansion on Project Knoxville.
Inside a statement printed on Xbox Wire, Microsoft states these changes take effect “as Microsoft Galleries is constantly on the focus its investment and development around the games and franchises that fans find most enjoyable and wish to play.” This leads us to think Microsoft did not think there is enough “excitement” for Fable Stories when in comparison to the bigger AAA franchises, such as the Halo series.
Fortunately, Xbox assures the gaming community it’s dedicated to working carefully with individuals impacted by today’s news to assist locate them new possibilities at Xbox or help put them in jobs elsewhere within the games industry when they like.
Lionhead Galleries began in 1996 and launched its first game, Black & White-colored, in 2001. The studio then continued to operate around the original Fable in 2004, Black & White-colored 2 and also the Movies in 2005, and were acquired by Microsoft in April 2006. Under Microsoft, Lionhead Galleries continued to operate solely around the Fable series as Fable II launched in 2008, and Fable III launched this year. The studio also labored with an Xbox Live Arcade Fable Heroes game, and also the Kinect-enabled Fable: Your Way.
Fable Stories was introduced in August 2013 being an Xbox One exclusive, but several several weeks later was introduced to become a free-to-play title for Microsoft’s console and PC. We learned Fable Stories is why there wasn’t a Fable 4 yet. With today’s news, there exists a feeling there won’t be a Fable 4.
