Over on Facebook, Sean Smith pointed me to this article: Fable Legends Cancelled As Lionhead And More Close. Here’s the announcement on Xbox Wire.
It’s strange to know I’ve written a tie-in novel for a game that will never exist. But hey, does that mean Fable: Blood of Heroes is now a collector’s item?
I wanted to wish everyone at Lionhead the best. I’m sorry we won’t get to see Fable Legends. I can tell you there were a lot of fun ideas and characters in the game, and everyone I spoke to and emailed while working on Blood of Heroes was a pleasure to work with. Interacting with the fans over on the Fable boards was great too.
I know there were delays in getting the game into production, and it was pushed back several times. I don’t know any of the specifics as to why they decided to cancel it now.
My thanks to the team at Lionhead for giving me the chance to play in their world.
