Is the world of Albion coming to an MMO near you? That's up for speculation thanks to a job advertisement on Microsoft's career board
. The software giant, which owns Fable
developer Lionhead Studios
, is seeking a programmer "who enjoys playing MMO games and has significant experience with the workings of a massive online multiplayer environment."
Further requirements include "a minimum of one shipped MMO as a network programmer."
Lionhead shipped Fable III
in October of 2010, and the company is rumored to be developing a "controller-based" Fable IV
in 2013, according to Eurogamer.
When contacted by Eurogamer, Lionhead had this to say in an official statement: "Thanks for checking in with us! We're happy to tell you all about what we're working on. Just apply, get hired, and we promise to spill our guts!"
