The Playground Games team working on Fable isn't the same team as the Forza Horizon team. PG split off and created a separate RPG team with existing RPG talent. And teams can totally work on different games and be successful. Look at Killzone vs. Horizon Zero Dawn. Look at Rockstar's Table Tennis vs. GTA.

I don't think Colt Eastwood is a liar. I just don't think he knows what the f*** he is talking about. All he does is take rumors, and then make a youtube video from it like 3 seconds later.

Last I heard, they were running out of money and the owner has done a recent desperate plea for money.

This claim is pure BS. Team 2 at PG was started over 5 years ago and was being built with RPG developers.


"That's another goal of Project 2, to allow us to do that. We're going to need to hire some very talented people with experience that we don't have."

They even have a separate building for the RPG team.

Jincas gloomy outlook on anything Xbox is hilarious. Great reading especially when sitting on the throne taking a dump.

Size increase doesn't but hiring a team of people known for making that kind of game does.

Well they were pushing it with the latest horizon. Maybe they can transfer of to the new forza engine or just wait it out until said engine is done and they could use it in the next installments whilst I figure out how to keep this sentence to run on and on…

Who did they hire that knows how to make that kind of game? I haven't seen any of that but I would assume that would be done, it would be insane not to. Getting their engine to have to work with systems that it wasn't designed around is a challenge I'm sure.

Well they got animals down, behavioral/herding down, they should probably give 343 a hand with that.

I guess they said, hey we got sheep to work and said “hey, let’s go bigger”….but I’m sure they got plenty of people who know how to make the game they want. It’s probably just a software issue. It’s been like almost five years in development.

Fable legends wasn't even a fable game lol it was a game using the fable name but it was a F2P MP game that got cancelled, was nothing like the others at all.

That's like saying Fable Heroes or Journey aren't Fable games due to being different to 1-3.

Journey is a better game than 3.

The fart humor haven't aged well, but 1 and 2 were pretty great games... 3, not so much, but still above average imo.

Honestly, I hope no one from the original team is left, the series needed fresh blood even before the third entry.

Fable 3's biggest problem to me was it's technical performance, that framerate was TERRIBLE in some areas and not great through most of the game. I think the fart jokes fit within that world pretty well, I love the whole setting and atmosphere that they created. the gameplay could improve, the magic system works great but the rest of it feels a bit clunky. I'd love to see remakes of the original 3 with high framerates and better textures etc while still maintaining that art style.

I refused to by a kinect but EVERYTHING I saw of that game made me hate it lol, fable isn't supposed to be an on rails first person game. That looks like it had the same issue a lot of motion control games have, they decided they needed a way to work kinect into an established franchise instead of making a game that truly makes motion control feel necessary.

Kinect was actually pretty awesome. If you sat down in front of the TV the Xbox would turn on, it would react to voice commands, it worked very well with some of the dance games, etc. The only problem was that it was a pack-in with the Xbox One.

It also worked on most games but few games actually tried to be anything other than a quick set of mini games.

Journey being on rails meant it actually focused on the story which was quite good and featured something that would have played a big part in F4 if it had happened.
It controlled fine as well which is the most important thing.
