Lionhead has had to launch a Twitter denial that it announced Fable 4 at the BAFTAs - contradicting a report in Future Publishing's C&VG.
We've got to assume that Lionhead contacted the site before tweeting the following
"Just to be clear @pmolyneux did not announce #Fable4 as reported by CVG, if you read the quote the headline is misleading."
The headline in question is Next Fable Should Amaze Gamers - Molyneux
'. However, the URL refers to "Fable 4".
So, a bit of hair-splitting going on there really. Even more so if you read that in the interview from BAFTA, Peter Molyneux explained that, "I have a very clear idea where Fable
will go in the future. Trying to be diplomatic, I think that whatever we do next with Fable
, we should just amaze people with the quality.
"If we go on, we're not just going to make another Fable, we're going to make something that stands head and shoulders up with anybody else out there - the best of the best - in terms of its technology, its drama and its storytelling."
That said, this is the same games legend who has recently admitted
that, "I could name at least 10 features in games that I've made up to stop journalists going to sleep and I really apologise to the team for that."
So, who knows, eh? Either way, congrats to Peter on his BAFTA.
