Xbox knows giving Fable 4 to Forza Horizon studio “could be a little bit of a head-scratcher”, but promises “they get it”

The Fable reboot, in development at Forza Horizon studio Playground Games, is in good hands, according to Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty.

In an interview (opens in new tab) at PAX West 2022, Booty acknowledges that having the beloved RPG series in the hands of a developer whose expertise lies predominantly in the racing genre might be puzzling and slightly worrying but wants to assure fans that Playground Games “get it”. He says, “Let’s be honest, giving Fable to the racing team could be a little bit of a head-scratcher, but they have proven that they get it, and I’m excited for when the time comes to be able to show more . “
