Peter Molyneux and Lionhead Studios are finalizing Fable 2. In a recent interview, the famous game designer expressed his thoughts on how the development of Fable 2 went on. He also happened to have mentioned that the development team will be delivering more Fable games in the future - Fable 3, Fable 4 and Fable 5. After that he said he'd like to do something different; like a sports game!

If we can believe PM (what some people dont do anymore, I noticed),and from what I've read on other internet sites, Lionhead is already making plans for Fable 4 and Fable 5 if Fable 3 will be a success!

*Top one is very old so here's a more recent one
There are a lot of rumours on the net from Peter Molyneux (Lionhead Studio’s) that there are plans on the table for a Fable 4 and 5 as well as Fable 3. These may depend on the success or failure of Fable 3

Fable 4 in 2014 potentially and Fable 5 in 2017 he said were the possible release periods.

3-4 years between release is good give each game some time but that means more wait time.

Yeah thats true but at least Peter is deciding to not rush the release of the next game like some producers do! He wants the whole series to be perfect and grow each game.

This game might be a bigger success than Fable 2 solely of the marketing, it's just looking really good and even better than F2.

But 1 step at a time.. invest in Fable 3 before raving energy in sequels.

They only said they are planning to make Fable 4 and 5 if Fable 3 is a success. It's just an idea now, nothing more.

It's common practice to plan future games before earlier games are released. Everybody does it. Lionhead has people that are finished with Fable 3. Are they supposed to sit there doing nothing? No, they start working on designing the next game. This way you don't wait 8 years between games.

if you check the cover art for fable I,II,and III they are all a male person a child in the firs a teen in the 2nd and a man in the 3rd so fable 4 would have to be an old man wich would not be great

Most game developers do. It just a common this so that the developers have something to work on and it gives them time to test out new engines and mechanics. For example; Bungie had three teams: one was working on Halo Wars, the second team was working on ODST, and then Reach.

Seriously?
I mean, ODST is already out for a few years and Reach is just new.

Plus, like Reality said, there are indeed many game companies that have dozens of teams. (dont know if this ia a good example(probably not, I never give good examples)) when looking at EA, I dont even know if I have a game they haven't been working with!

doesn't bioware have dragon age and mass effect games in production at the same time?

If they can do it then other major studios should be able to as well.

Im serious. Bungie had three teams due to the success of Halo 3, they wanted to capitalize on every opportunity.

Halo Wars isn't a Bungie product, it was done by Ensemble.

^This. I hate when people are wrong on small but important mistakes like that.

Yeah well sorry about that I was just making a point about developers splitting up to work on different projects. Honest mistake.

Good for you that you hate people for small things... especially hating a fellow Canadian. :mad:
