Fable Card Game Survives (For Now) The Death Of Lionhead

Yes, Fable has been driven into the ground until only dust and ash remain, but for remaining fans of Lionhead’s fantasy series, there is small hope: the video games might be gone, but a card game is still being worked on.


Turns out that before being shut down, Lionhead was quietly working on a digital card game called Fable Fortune. While that’s obviously been cancelled as a Lionhead project, a new team of ex-Lionhead developers have been given permission by Microsoft to keep hold of the Fable branding and try and get the game funded on Kickstarter.


It’s free-to-play, is aiming for PC and Xbox One (with phone ports to follow) and has both PvP and co-op (in which players complete quests).

While the footage shown looks pretty polished, don’t go counting on playing this just yet: the team are asking for a whopping £250,000 (USD$360,000 at time of posting). That’s...a lot.

rofl how sad. MS doesn’t want to put any more money into a dead franchise but will be more than happy to continue receiving money off of it if SOMEONE ELSE can get the game funded and running to generate revenue. A f2p card game at that.
