Fable announced for Xbox Series X and Windows 10

Closing out today's Xbox Games Showcase, Microsoft formally announced a new Fable game, set to release for Xbox Series X, Xbox Games Pass, and Windows 10. As suggested through some early hints, the game is in development at UK-based studio Playground Games, known for the Forza Horizon series. No release window was given.

The announcement teaser trailer can be seen below.

Fable returns with a new beginning for the legendary franchise. Explore a land of fantastical creatures and wondrous places. Developed by Playground Games for Xbox Series X and Windows 10.

This looks to be a reboot for the franchise, which hasn't seen a new mainline entry since Fable III in 2010. Rumors about a Fable reappearance first started swirling in January 2018, when a former developer vaguely teased about an upcoming entry, followed by Eurogamer report about a planned revival.

Now it's official, but we'll have to stay tuned for more information about Fable's return.
