Peter Molyneux says he would “love to go back” to Fable
It’s been two years since Peter Molyneux quit the studio he co-founded, Lionhead Games, to go independent with 22 Cans – but that doesn’t mean the creator doesn’t still think about returning.
“I mean, I loved doing Fable,” revealed Molyneux, in an interview with X-ONE to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Fable franchise. “I loved developing the story, and loved thinking of ways you could change and introduce innovational elements into the gameplay. I would never say never.”
As revealed in our exclusive eight-page ‘Future of Fable’ feature inside X-ONE #115 – on sale now – the Fable creator still has massive ideas for Fable IV, though whether he ever gets to realise them will be down to Microsoft, as opposed to of a lack of ambition.
“By the time I left Lionhead, I think I wanted to experiment with totally different things… I would love to go back to it [Fable] at some point in time. But it’s extremely unlikely because, of course, it is all owned by Microsoft.”
Fable Legends is due for release early in 2015, though it isn’t a traditional adventure through Albion. Instead, for the first time, you can grab your friends and go on adventures with up to four heroes cooperatively while fighting a villain controlled by a fifth player.
